Retreats Resources

Nothing could be finer than to be back in Carolina and Virginia in 2017!

Start the year off right, y'all! Join us in Richmond, Raleigh or Charlotte for our Sweet Carolinas Roadshow!

We're starting off 2017 with an exciting trip to Virginia and North Carolina to bring you our first roadshow of the year! What's different about a Retreats Resources roadshow, you ask? A lot. We've been setting the standard for luxury showcases for over a decade, introducing our guests to the most desirable destinations from around the globe in a relaxed, upscale atmosphere. Our marketplace affords you the chance to meet one- on-one with the destinations you care most about, creating relationships that can last a lifetime. But most importantly, we care about you and your business and what happens after the showcase, making sure you continue to have all the resources you need to create a successful, memorable event. So mark your calendar now for the event near you!

The Carolinas Aviation Museum
4672 First Flight Drive, Charlotte, NC 28208

If you've never been to the aviation museum, this is the perfect event! The centerpiece attraction is the USAir plane that came down in the Hudson River (aka "The Miracle on the Hudson") so with the movie going to video in January, our timing could not be better. Lots of fun surprises are in store including the opportunity to meet and greet some of the flight's survivors!

We'll also hear from Sandi Galloway who will give us lots of great information on flight safety. Sandi Galloway, CPECP, is a Hospitality Industry veteran with extensive knowledge of Travel Safety Risk Management. Sandi's mission is to help you avoid "bad things" when you travel.
