Part strategic meeting, part celebration, Internova Travel Group’s three-day program focused on collaboration, imagination and connection

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — Top luxury travel advisors, travel agencies and providers have new opportunities to work together as a result of Internova Travel Group’s inaugural Internova PLUS event, held Jan. 17-20 in San Diego, California.

Internova, one of the world’s largest travel services companies, handpicked 125 luxury travel advisors from across each of its brands, including ALTOUR, Global Travel Collection, Nexion Travel Group and Travel Leaders Network.

At Internova PLUS in San Diego, Calif. (l-r): Jonas Schneider, Assistant Director of Sales, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz; Albert Herrera, Executive Vice President, Partner Relations, Internova Travel Group; Lauren Beall, Luxury Travel Advisor, Protravel International, Global Travel Collection; Sven Flory, Director of Sales, The Bürgenstock Collection; and J.D. O’Hara, Chief Executive Officer, Internova Travel Group

Participants were selected based on a range of criteria, including advisors who are in the top 20 percent of luxury bookers, with average annual sales exceeding $2.5 million; contribute to elevating the industry through collaboration and sharing knowledge; take an innovative approach to their business development; and are rising stars who have been in the industry for less than five years.

The 85 supplier partners represented an airline, cruise lines and hotel brands, as well as tour operators from destinations around the world.

The event won raves from travel advisors.

“Internova PLUS is a big deal,” said Leah Iudice, a luxury travel advisor with Nexion Travel Group. “It was an honor to be part of this select group of travel advisors. I learned an incredible amount and I’m returning home with fresh ideas for my business. I’m so excited to offer my clients even more high-end travel options in partnership with Internova.”


“The vibe at Internova PLUS was so relaxed, and that was incredibly conducive to building new relationships,” said Jeffrey Brothers, a luxury travel advisor with Global Travel Collection.

“Anyone can talk about how much they appreciate their travel advisors but at Internova, they show it,” said luxury travel advisor Caryl Halpin from Global Travel Collection. “Internova PLUS is a perfect example of the high level of personal attention and tremendous support that Internova provides its travel advisors. Everything about this event was carefully curated to help us grow our businesses and strengthen our relationships with some of the most important brands in luxury travel.”

Diane Frisch, a luxury travel advisor with Nexion Travel Group, noted that Internova PLUS is the latest in a series of company events that are geared toward supporting luxury travel advisors. “Internova has made a commitment to the luxury category unlike any I have ever seen,” said Frisch. “This event proves that if you’re a luxury travel advisor, you need to be affiliated with Internova. It’s not only the most valuable conference I have ever been to, it’s my favorite.”

Likewise, travel suppliers were also impressed with the event.

“Internova PLUS proved that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” said Tristan Dowell, Global Vice President, Luxury, Lifestyle and Leisure for Hyatt Hotels. “Not only did we have important conversations with travel advisors, we were also able to connect with friendly competitors in an impactful way.”

“The size, the professionalism and variety of the advisors, as well the quality of the content, were all incredible,” said Ludovic Cayacy, Director of Sales at the Four Seasons Hotel George V, in Paris. “Internova PLUS ticked all the boxes.”


“I received an inquiry from every appointment I had,” said Rebecca Slater, owner of Rebecca Recommends, one of the leading luxury travel representation companies in the United States. “I can’t remember that ever happening at a meeting before.”

Internova PLUS, held at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, was designed to push the boundaries of traditional event programming by bringing together participants through an intimate, innovative approach. Attendees tackled critical industry topics in “Think Tank” sessions, met one-on-one, enjoyed small group dinners and engaged in structured networking that fostered creativity and collaboration. There were opportunities to bond informally through activities like hiking, bocce, pickleball, beer and wine tasting and a sustainability tour.

“We are proud of what we put together for our partners and advisors,” said Albert Herrera, Executive Vice President, Partner Relations at Internova. “The discussions that happened at Internova PLUS will shape the next year of luxury travel.” 

Herrera announced that the next Internova PLUS event will take place Jan. 16-19, 2024, at the soon-to-be-opened Pendry Newport Beach, in Orange County, California.

  5. Be supportive: Support your woman in her goals and dreams. Show interest in her hobbies and passions and encourage her to pursue them.

This is why you should observe Earth Hour

Earth Hour is an annual event that takes place on the last Saturday of March.

Earth Hour is an annual event that takes place on the last Saturday of March. During this event, people around the world turn off their lights for one hour to raise awareness of climate change and the need for sustainable living. Here’s a brief history of Earth Hour and why we observe it:

Earth Hour was first observed in Sydney, Australia in 2007. The event was organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) as a way to raise awareness of climate change and encourage people to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. During the first Earth Hour, more than 2 million people in Sydney turned off their lights for one hour. The event was a huge success, and it has since become a global movement.

The Biggest Hour on Earth!

Today, Earth Hour is observed in more than 180 countries around the world. Millions of people participate by turning off their lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. local time. Landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Sydney Opera House, and the Empire State Building in New York City also participate by turning off their lights.

The goal of Earth Hour is to raise awareness of the impact that human activities have on the environment and to encourage people to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our planet today, and Earth Hour is a way to remind people of the urgent need to take action to protect our planet.

During Earth Hour, people are encouraged to do more than just turn off their lights. They are also encouraged to make changes in their daily lives that will help reduce their carbon footprint. This can include things like using public transportation, eating less meat, using energy-efficient light bulbs, and reducing waste.

In conclusion, Earth Hour is an annual event that encourages people around the world to turn off their lights for one hour to raise awareness of climate change and the need for sustainable living. By participating in Earth Hour and making changes in our daily lives, we can all do our part to protect our planet and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.
