Thank you for joining us and Happy New Year.

Enjoy this week's fresh program with a serious look at security, safety, education and business travel for 2010.

Next week, we will be attending the Morocco Travel Market (MTM) in Marrakech, located in northwest Africa. MTM is a member of the International Trade and Travel Fairs Association (ITTFA). This association represents approximately 20 travel fairs around the world in some very exotic and interesting destinations like
Belgrade, Serbia, Montenegro, Moscow, Kazakhstan and Italy. We hope to be covering many of these conferences as part of a partnership we have formed with the ITTFA.
If you would like a leisurely look at travel, please join us for our broadcast of TravelTalkRADIO this coming Sunday from 9 - 11AM Pacific Time. We are commercial radio station in many areas and online!

Interested in the Moroccan Travel Market? This includes much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. If so, let us know.

We will be bringing you programming from MTM later this month.

Have a great week,

International Tourism
Trade Fairs Association

Segment 3

Klaas-Wybo van der Hoek
Vice President of Stenden University Executive Board

 Klaas-Wybo and Sandy have worked together for the past 5 years on initiatives regarding education, peace and tourism. Through the foresight and vision of Klaas-Wybo and the excellent executive board, Stenden University is a well rounded hospitality university offering all aspects of a quality hospitality education. Klaas-Wybo’s personal commitment to the universities newly formed centers on peace and tourism and the new media and entertainment department has opened up new opportunities for the students and the professors.

Stenden attracts meetings to their on-site hotel and meeting facilities as part of the program they offer to students who come from all over the world to this renowned hospitality university tucked in a quaint Dutch village called Leeuwarden.. At the heart of these forums and conferences are the students who plan and coordinate the meetings as a part of the ‘problem-based learning’ technique. The upscale hotel and meeting facilities are under one roof and with the university allowing visitors a chance to work directly with the students and their professors. From a personal point of view, it is a delightful and rewarding experience!

Stenden has campuses throughout the world including ; Netherlands, Qatar, South Africa, Thailand, Germany and Bali.  http://www.stenden.com

Segment 4

Therese Jacobson, President of the Los Angeles Business Travel Association (LABTA)

From Los Angeles, the head of the largest single city chapter of the National Business Travel Association (NBTA) talks with us about the full body scanners now in use at LAX and soon to become universally omnipresent. Just how intrusive are these? Are there legitimate moral objections to these machines? What does Casper the Ghost have to do with all of this? We'll also hear about LABTA's goals for 2010 and they are ambitious indeed! http://www.labta.org
