Welcome to this Week's TravelTalkMEDIA Newsletter  

We have a very interesting and eclectic show this week on TravelTalkRADIO. We’ll explore the business of importing organically grown food from around the world.

Then we'll switch gears and talk to the man who has been the personal manager of the legendary Temptations music group since Motown began. If you ever danced or sang along with to one of the many Temptations hit records, you will enjoy the conversation I have with Mr. Shelley Berger, the manager of the Temptations for the past 45 years. This celebrated group continues to bring their music to the fans and is now planning a global Ambassador and Good Will Tour that will take them to several international destinations.


Are we troubled with edgy messages
from destinations?

Next, we'll talk with a professional culinary expert, Chef Vania Almeida, who heads up one of the most exclusive and upscale restaurants in LA about what it takes to completely revamp a fine dining menu.

Finally, we’ll take a look at a more serious story that involves the US travel industry crying foul as the new Administration in DC denounces corporate business travel to Las Vegas on grounds of decadence, excess, and the appearance of impropriety. Executive Director, Bill Connors from the National Business Travel Association, joins me to discuss why the travel industry is blaming mass media and the new US administration for failing to recognize the huge economic benefits of corporate travel and most specifically business travel including meetings and conventions.

Do corporate meeting destinations like Las Vegas have a responsibility to redraft their marketing messages and reconsider their offerings to potential business travel visitors in line with the new Administration's call for accountability and transparency?

You’ll find each segment is filled with hope for the new day as we celebrate the precious freedom of travel with the experts from around the world.

We’ll explore what's new, relevant and attainable.

Just a reminder, we will be in New Orleans (my personally recommendation for meetings and conventions) for the 26th Annual French Quarter Festival. Why not join us? Click into the New Orleans link and call your agent. Hopefully, we'll see you there, the weekend of April 18-19!

Thanks for stopping by and remember the radio archives are available directly after the program on Sunday.

Safe travels and thank you for your emails.

Warm regards,

Sandy
