PowerSolutions LIVE Seattle will focus on providing area travel agents with the necessary tools to successfully grow their travel businesses through educational sessions and supplier networking opportunities.

The event will feature Richard Earls, Publisher with Travel Research Online (TRO), as the keynote speaker who will be presenting, “Harnessing the Power of a Professional Web Presence”. This lines up with CCRA’s newest product, TRUESites, a user-friendly and intuitive website builder and social media management platform, which was created in collaboration with the highly successful Voyager Website product launches last year. CCRA offers the full suite of Voyager tools under the TRUE flag to member agencies at a steep discount as part of their growing list of benefits.
