Building Momentum. Building Knowledge. Building Business.

Many aspects of business can be done virually. You can research destinations, compare prices, even check out a live stream from a Web cam of a potential tour stop. Technology has made sharing easier. But, there is one piece of travel indusry business that the Web just can't replicate --personal connection.

That's where NTA Business Builder come in. Each of the Business Builder events (listed below) is designed to deliver more business, new contacts and broader knowledge to NTA members through personal interaction. Each Business Builder has its own purpose and personality.
