Annual Student Tour Operator Appreciation Event July 23, 2022
Every year, key Student Tour Operators attend Southwest Summer Music Exhibition. This conference gives Visit San Antonio and industry partners the opportunity to host clients for an evening of appreciation. These student operators have been a leading provider of student travel into our destination year after year, and as a small token of appreciation, we host them with an evening filled with dinner, music, entertainment, destination updates and networking opportunities for our industry partners. This year we had a fantastic event and turnout. We had 10 industry suppliers welcome 16 tour companies and over 80 people in attendance. A special thank you to Margaritaville Rivercenter who hosted the event.
Price Travel Webinar
As part of our 2022 Price Travel campaign with Brand USA earlier in the year, July Tourism Development had an opportunity to train 90 travel agents. We focused on what experiences were available for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. Price Travel buys their product either through direct contracts or third parties for both hotel and ancillary products, leaving the opportunity to book among many experiences within the destination.
Aeromexico La Música Te Hace Volar
In July, Aeromexico confirmed the late summer and fall seasons to highlight special concerts through sweepstake giveaways, including flights, hotels, and concert tickets. The airline will be highlighting four concerts this season from August to late October. The campaign returns after two previous successful seasons with an average reach of 25 million people.
