“Connect Marketplace is extremely important in promoting international travel. By bringing international buyers to the states and having an appointment-show format, it exposes even more people on why they should come to the U.S.”  Roger Dow, President, US TRAVEL

“International visitation to our region is vital and the inaugural Connect Travel Marketplace was extremely productive for Experience Kissimmee and for our partners,” said DT Minich, president and CEO with Experience Kissimmee. “We are very excited to host Connect Travel Marketplace 2019 and to showcase Kissimmee to over 200 international tour operators from around the world.”

“The show exceeded our wildest expectations.  We’ve never attended a show that yielded not only the quality of buyers we had appointments with, but the fact that of the 45 appointments we had we issued 37 contract (82% close rate) is unparalleled.  ConnectTRAVEL definitely delivered on the promise of “Right People. Right Time.  Right Format.”  We are very excited for 2019 and beyond.”  Fabrizio “The Dude” Busso-Campana, SVP, Jungle Queen Riverboat Cruises
