Contact is NTA’s exclusive buyer event: a perfect blend of business, education and fun in an intimate setting. It’s focused on in-depth education and fosters buyer-to-buyer conversation and partnerships. Contact allows tour operators, travel agents and sponsoring suppliers and DMOs to connect, create and collaborate in a three-day program.
As everyone knows, all work and no play is not what life’s all about. So Contact isn’t all about sitting in a classroom, we like to get out, see the sights and have some fun, too. Registration for Contact ’18 in Charleston opens soon.
