Have you ever wondered how the concierge industry has changed over the years? If it's obsolete, why is Expedia buying concierge companies, Facebook launching "Facebook M", and other companies stepping up the game? If it's the new trend, how could YOU take advantage of what's happening in the industry and not be lost in the ever-changing travel industry?

Come and talk with fellow travel experts, top concierges about luxury, travel perks, tech, and the future of travel.
