NTA Appointment Request System Opens at Noon Today
July 18, 2007 – The Online Appointment Request System opens today, July 18, at noon ET and will be open until Oct. 5. The online system allows you to research and prepare your list of appointment requests for the 2007 NTA Tour & Travel Exchange, coming up Nov. 2-6 in Kansas City, Missouri.

By using the online appointment scheduling system’s research features, you can create an appropriate list of requests which includes companies that could make viable business partners for your company. Your final appointment schedule will reflect the research and groundwork you invest in your request list. The order in which requests are submitted will not affect your scheduling, so take your time and feel free to revise your selections. You can update your request list as often as you like prior to Oct. 5.

Profile Updates: NTA has been contacting each operator to update their Convention profile over the phone. We know how important updated information is to you and your Exchange appointments.

Lead Generation: NTA will compile a custom lead sheet for you upon request. We’ll use the updated operator profile information to run a list of tour operators that come to your region that you can then use to request your appointments.

Also new this year:

  • The Buyer-to-Buyer Exchange – This replaces Friday’s Tour Operator Speed Dating session. The session is open to NTA tour operators and professional travel buyers, including travel agents and bank and educational travel planners. Tour operators can both buy and sell during the seven-minute prescheduled appointments with the professional travel buyers.


  • The Destination Pavilion – Based on a proposal from the NTA Convention Committee, your association has reworked the DMO Workstations and is introducing the Destination Pavilion for 2007. The new format will allow tour operators to shop regionally, based on geographic interests, which is a preference tour operators have voiced. Located on the Convention Floor, it will be available to tour operators throughout Convention.


  • Seven-Minute DMO Appointments Return – The members spoke, and seven-minute appointments are back for DMOs during the Tour & Travel Exchange. DMOs will have prescheduled business appointments during the Saturday Exchange and tour suppliers will have prescheduled appointments during the Exchange sessions on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Appointments in all Exchanges will be seven minutes.

You will need your registration number to log on to the request system. For more information, contact your NTA Member Services Team at 800.682.8886 (U.S. and Canada) or 859.226.4444.
