After a complete two-year absence, Travel Market Place West returned on Monday, bringing together advisors and suppliers for the first time in Vancouver since the last conference in 2020.

“We are so happy to be back,” TMR editor Anne Marie Moebes told attendees Monday. “It’s almost surreal.”

Over 200 attendees came to Parq Vancouver for the conference. Monday was the first day of the two-day conference and the sessions focused on how advisors can rebuild their business while helping the industry get back on its feet two years after COVID-19.

“Everyone in this room — you’re a fighter, and I love that and I love you,” Lorraine Simpson, travel specialist for Cityline TV and owner of Lorraine Simpson Travels, said on the main stage.

One of the opening sessions was to help counselors protect themselves during this fight. Tim Law, Partner at Heifetz, Crozier and Law, explained to advisors what they need to know about due diligence and the creation and effective use of terms and conditions, which has become so crucial in the age of COVID. -19.
