ACTA Summit Special Video: The Resurgence of Advisors, Record Bookings & Bigger Travel


Sometimes a panel just clicks. This is one of them.

At the first of three, in-person ACTA Summits this month across Canada, Open Jaw cameras were on hand to capture positively riveting comments at a panel discussion between industry stakeholders, who shared hard-hitting insights into the upside of the post-pandemic era.

On the value of travel advice, Stephanie Bishop nailed it: “Do consumers call their lawyer on Saturday morning?” Need we say more? Well worth the listen to the end, with guest appearance from Softvoyage’s Dan Langevin.

ACTA's president, Wendy Paradis, got a sneak preview of this Open Jaw video. "It is wonderful to see how Open Jaw's Summit interview echoed comments from our main stage panelists, Shalene, Sarah, Laurie and Paulette," she said.

"It reinforces the entire industry's commitment to professional fees, the tremendous value of a travel advisor's time and expertise, and the desire to build back better".

For ease of viewing, the video can be navigated by chapters.
