Special Offers at World Religious Travel Expo


LITTLETON, Colorado (Oct. 20, 2008) – The World Religious Travel Association (WRTA) has announced details of the special incentives and offers program, worth thousands of dollars, that will be available to buyers attending the inaugural World Religious Travel Expo & Educational Conference, Oct. 29-Nov. 1, in Orlando.

Highlights include:
• Bonus commissions and cash rebates up to $1,000
• Familiarization (FAM) trips and cruises ranging from the Caribbean to Europe to the Holy Land
• Prize drawings for airline tickets, escorted group tours, travel product baskets, and more
• Free gifts including handmade creations and artifacts from Africa and destinations around the world
• Complimentary admission tickets to local Orlando faith attractions
• Discounts and savings on faith travel guidebooks, magazines, and other related publications

“We are excited to debut this lucrative and exclusive voucher program at our Expo tradeshow. The special offers increased booth traffic for the exhibitors while travel agents and buyers are incentivized to meet them personally and learn about their products and services,” said Kevin J. Wright, WRTA president. “It truly makes for a Win-Win situation for all Expo delegates.”

Participants at the Expo also have the option to go on a free excursion to Orlando’s top faith-based attractions – the Holy Land Experience, WordSpring Discovery Center and the master studio of The JESUS Film Project. The post-conference tour will be led by Wright, the award-winning author of several religious travel guidebooks. His latest, “The Christian Travel Planner,” (released 2008 by Thomas Nelson) is the most comprehensive guidebook ever published on faith-based travel. Tour members will be able to see the Orlando sights firsthand and learn how to incorporate them into their faith tourism portfolio.

The World Religious Travel Expo and Educational Conference serves as the most important gathering of leaders in today’s faith tourism industry. About 500 participants are expected at the unprecedented event. The Expo will be held Oct. 29-Nov.1, 2008 at the Gaylord Palms Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
