Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and Travel Advisors Give Back During Virtuoso Travel Week

Held annually in Las Vegas, Virtuoso Travel Week invites travel advisors and providers to foster connections and collaborate on the latest and greatest opportunities in global travel. This year, almost 5,000 attendees are expected, providing new chances to create the best experiences for clients and travelers around the world.

Every year, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts hosts client events as a chance to not only foster relationships with experts in the travel community, but also to give back to the global community. For the last five years at Virtuoso Travel Week, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has gifted each attendee at hosted lunches with a USD10 to USD15 contribution to UNICEF to go towards the purchase of a water pump. The water pumps provide clean, safe and affordable drinking water for whole communities, as well as help alleviate the pain of walking far distances to retrieve potable water.

This year, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts will extend the donations to hosted dinners as well as lunches.

“During Virtuoso Travel Week, the team from Shangri-La enjoys meeting travel advisors from around the world,” said Brian Windle, vice president of sales and marketing, the Americas for Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. “As we attend Virtuoso Travel Week to foster the power of travel and tourism, we’re proud to give back to the global community and help support the growth of communities around the world.”

We look forward to welcoming travel agents and advisors to events during Virtuoso Travel Week, as well as witnessing the positive global impact that Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts will have long after Travel Week ends.
