November 10 – 11, 2020 

ASTA Premium Business Summit is Going Virtual!

Given the importance of the health and well-being of our Premium members, partners, and staff, we have decided to move our annual ASTA Premium Business Summit 2020 to online on November 10 - 11, 2020. As a bonus, we're incorporating a newly created event on November 9th from 12 PM  - 4 PM ET, "The ASTA Corporate Travel Conclave Powered by The Company Dime." Your registration includes admission to both events!

At this year's Summit taking place November 10-11, we'll address topics and concerns with influential speakers focused on today's realities and tomorrow's predictions. We'll confront the seemingly constant news headlines surrounding the pandemic and tackle how to lead and strategize in a time of disruption. 

Features Include:
  • Resetting Your Mindset: Bill Taylor, Co-Founder of Fast Company Magazine, will help refocus your mindset on how the competition is no longer about being the best at what many others already do. Instead, now it's about being the only one who does what you do.
  • We will dig into direct vs. indirect distribution through frank conversation with Mike Premo, ARC's President & CEO, and Arnie Weissmann, Editor in Chief at Travel Weekly.
  • What's on the horizon for business impact recovery? Scott Wayne, Managing Partner at Envoy, will provide candid and engaging discussions on where we go from here and how agencies and the world can be better prepared going forward.
  • We'll also confront the ever-present question, "Who owns the client?" through a rousing round of courtroom drama with ASTA Travel Court, where you will have a say in our mock trial.
