Although we miss traveling, we have been enjoying the chance to research the trips we’ll take in the future. That’s why we’re thrilled to invite you to join us for the Travel Like a Pro! 2020 Summit!

On April 7-9, 2020, we’re joining 25 fellow travel experts for a free, virtual video conference to share our ideas for planning incredible vacations. On Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 9:00 AM ET, we’ll be talking about how to make the most of your paid time off, including some of our favorite tips. At 10:00 AM, Stephanie will join host Jerry Winans to share how vacations benefit individuals, teams, and companies with a preview of our Business of Vacation workshops.

With so many of us under stay at home orders for the foreseeable future, planning a vacation is as close to real travel as we can get. If you are looking for a way to beat your boredom, indulge in some wanderlust, or gain some insights from voices throughout the travel industry, don’t miss the Travel Like a Pro! 2020 Summit! Register today—we look forward to “seeing” you there!

Today is National Plan For Vacation Day! Since we started Road Unraveled, we have enjoyed sharing our vacation ideas with you—and we have really enjoyed hearing your stories about the vacations you take. Still, one of the biggest challenges is that it’s simply hard to take time off from work. Many companies discourage vacations, and plenty of us worry that taking time off might suggest we aren’t committed to our jobs. It’s easy to see why vacation is often a bad word to use at work! We would like to change that.

Business of Vacation WorkshopsToday, we are thrilled to launch our new workshop the Business of Vacation workshop! This interactive, in-person workshop is designed to help companies to create a culture of vacation. Taking time off has incredible benefits for employees and for the workplace as a whole, and we can’t wait to help companies discover how vacation is a key to improving innovation, productivity, and engagement.

Learn more about the Business of Vacation workshop—and let us know if we can help your company unlock the power of vacation to improve organizational culture!
