Our trip and theTMTC 2017 Summit
October 22- 29, 2017
Starship Travel was invited to the Mark Travel Summit for Funjet, United Vacations, Southwest Vacations and Blue Sky Hawaii to Rivera Maya, Mexico to learn more about all of their products and updates of properties. We were hosted at the BRAND NEW Grand at Moon Palace. Mexico is one of our favorite destinations, so you can be assured we had a wonderful time!
Our first 3 days, Karen and Linda spent some quality time prior to the intense busy days at the Summit. We were hosted at the Grand Velas, in the Zen section of the resort. We spent this time mainly relaxing and soaking up the sun. We rarely have time to be leisurely on our trips nowadays, so this was a much needed detour.
We then headed to Xenses and Xcaret. These are just two theme parks which is a necessary stop for people and groups of all ages! Xenses tricks your senses! To see some of their attractions that make it so unique, watch this video. After a day full of fun, we headed to Xcaret for not only dinner, but a show! The food was wonderful, and we were entertained by a large production filled with dancing and Mexican culture.
After our laid back couple of days, we headed to our next destination. We stayed at the Grand at Moon Palace for the rest of our stay. This beautiful hotel was JUST built and opened, and features a great waterpark for its guests. The property is huge with numerous pools and 8 luxury restaurants to choose from, included in the package. There is a large Teen Center and a 10 lane bowling alley too!
Our Thursday was packed with a general sessions, meetings and think tanks. We celebrated our evening at the Joya Cirque de Soleil. What a production it was, including dinner! Seeing this show was a huge treat.
The next day, Friday, was packed with networking and learning. We had meetings all day! This evening we had a dine around program for the over 600 agents attending the Summit. Some of us were hosted to a fabulous dinner and “fire show dancers” at Iberostar Grand, Other agents from Starship Travel were hosted at the Finest Resort in Playa Mujeres!
Saturday was a day full of various presentations that kept us busy. We finished up the day with dinner and a Wine Collectors Event at El Dorado Royale. We were also delighted with entertainment and dinner here as well! They had Mariachi’s that put on an amazing performance!
Sunday was our last day in Mexico. We headed out in the afternoon for our journey home. With information overload and a huge amount of updates and product knowledge, the Summit was well worth our time. A wonderful program presented by the Mark Travel family.
