Delta Vacations University is a great format to meet qualified travel agents who are very interested to learn more about what Reno Tahoe USA has to offer. In addition, we learn what MLT is doing and the University is a convenient way to meet key MLT personnel in one place. The fact that they bring in their sales agents from their Minot call center is an additional benefit as well.

I have exhibited at Delta Vacations University for the past several years and find it is one of the best opportunities in the US market to meet with leisure travel professionals from all over the country. The attendees are of the highest quality and are always engaged and interested in our hotels. My hotel collection is based in London so we have limited resources in North America. however I always see a great ROI from exhibiting. It is also a great opportunity to network formally and informally with the MLT team who are always very supportive. I would recommend the University to any hotelier that works with MLT.

I was so impressed with the Delta Vacations staff. They were well organized, very welcoming and always helpful. The class presenters were so knowledgeable of the hotels and destinations, and learning from someone who has experienced the destination first-hand gives me the confidence to sell new destinations.
