Spring Meet Gets Underway in Louisville
March 22, 2006 – The 2006 National Tour Association Tour Operator Spring Meet in Louisville, Ky., kicked off on Wednesday. This year, more than 250 travel professionals registered to attend.

Spring Meet is a relaxed atmosphere, where NTA operators meet on a more informal basis to discuss industry events and collaborate with fellow operators to build travel packages.

Tour operators will partner face-to-face, including the popular speed-dating session, allowing operators to make in excess of 20 contacts in 75 minutes. Attendees also can continue their education at top-notch professional development seminars covering consumer trends and developing business techniques.

Among this year’s outstanding lineup of entertainment and social activities is the Taste of Kentucky Icebreaker, featuring Bluegrass music, traditional Kentucky foods and Kentucky bourbon at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Kentucky’s famous dessert, Derby Pie, will be served in the new $121 million renovation of Churchill Downs and delegates will experience Millionaire’s Row at Churchill Downs, where everyone who is anyone takes in the "fastest two minutes in sports."

The Friday night event will take place at Louisville’s newest attraction, the Muhammad Ali Center. The six-story center is a tribute to Ali’s unparalleled career and his peaceful political views and principles.

When not in session or experiencing all that Louisville has to offer, delegates will enjoy the finest accommodations at the Galt House Hotel & Suites in newly remodeled suites.
