ILTACON 2017 was one for the books! It's hard to believe two weeks ago today we were in Las Vegas. We made a lot of fond memories, and while there were many moments that led us to smile, here are a few that we captured which warmed our hearts.
1. Kicking off ILTACON 2017 with our CONSTELLATION networking event
This year, we hosted our annual networking event at LIGHT Nightclub in Las Vegas. It was a rush to see the Traveling Coaches logo on the marquee. We had a great time networking and connecting with the ILTA community.
2. TC-Rex and the Cupid Shuffle took over the dance floor
We also introduced TC-Rex, our newest team member during our CONSTELLATION networking event and he made quite an impression! I mean, look at these moves in the video below. We don’t know many people who could lead the Cupid Shuffle with such energy on a dance floor.
3. Exploring the galaxy with signs of the zodiac
We had a blast at ILTA’s Vendor Galaxy during the Exhibit Hall Opening Reception. Our spin on the galaxy theme incorporated the signs of the zodiac. ILTA members stepped into the photo booth with their sign and left with a photograph to mark the occasion.
4. Our Speaking and educational events
We appreciate the ILTA community and the culture of learning that ILTACON brings each year. Participants always ask that we engage and share our insight. This year, we led three educational sessions and one spotlight session.
5. Winning the red ribbon for our booth theme on Monday night
Once again, we were honored by ILTA for our team's creativity! Here’s a picture of the gang: (first row, kneeling, left to right) Amy Manint as Virgo, Kenny Leckie as Taurus; (second row, standing, left to right) Eileen Whitaker as Libra, Gina Buser as Cancer, Stacey Moore as Aquarius, Carolyn Humpherys as Scorpio, Joe Buser as Gemini; (third row, standing, left to right) Lyndi Lockhart as Leo, Jarrod Kastanek as Aries, Frank Barnard as Pisces, Cindy Mitchell as Capricorn ad Jennifer Diaz as Sagittarius.
6. Winning ILTA’s Publication Award 2017
Traveling Coaches won ILTA’s Publication Award for Most Innovative Ad Content for our “To Serve and Protect” campaign. Joe Buser accepted the award on stage at ILTA’s Distinguished Peer Awards. We were also honored to be shortlisted for Innovative Provider of the Year and Consultant of the Year.
We captured some more fun moments of TC-Rex at ILTACON. He stole the hearts of our team members as you can see by the camaraderie captured here. Also, the Wednesday winner for the TC-Rex picture competition gave TC-Rex a run for his money in a tug of war match! While who won the tug of war remains unseen, this contestant walked away with a $50 Amazon gift card for his winning post.
Until next year!
Parting is such sweet sorrow, but it was such a fun week to share with everyone. Now it’s time to start planning for ILTACON 2018!
