Travel Alliance Partners awards TAP Dance 2016 to Duluth, Minnesota

( Travel Alliance Partners, LLC (TAP) announced that TAP Dance, its exclusive invitation-only group travel conference, will bring an estimated 250 of the travel industry's movers and shakers to Duluth, Minnesota in June of 2016. Each of the 32 North America-based tour companies that own TAP will invite their top PPTPs (known as “suppliers" in other circles) to TAP Dance to bring their innovative tour ideas directly to tour planners and company decision-makers.

“Travel is a business of networking," says TAP's Executive Director, Stefanie Gorder. “At TAP, we operate in an environment of mutual trust, structured by strong relationships internally amongst our tour operator-owners as well as externally with our PPTPs. Because of this, each of our tour operators can confidently offer the best experiences and service to their own tour guests, as well as guests from other TAP operators."

With a unique format that combines business meetings with networking opportunities, TAP Dance leads directly to new business and new business relationships for everyone in attendance. Duluth, the world's largest inland seaport, surrounded by dramatic hills and a breathtaking, historic waterfront, will set the stage for key tour operator/PPTP meetings and evening networking events that showcase the city, as well as business meetings that focus on TAP's operations.

“TAP has been building strong contacts throughout Minnesota for the last several years," states TAP President Kevin Murphy, also General Manager of Sports Leisure Vacations, “and it is with great anticipation for Duluth's many offerings that we announce this meeting."

Including TAP Dance, held annually in June, the companies that comprise TAP meet four times a year, with an all-Member meeting in December, and Board meetings in March and August.
