Phoenix Travel Sessions

We’re thrilled to be hosting the 3rd annual Travel Sessions presented by First2Board. This year we’re in Phoenix July 24-26th at the lovely Starwood Luxury Collection, The Phoenician Hotel (6000 East Camelback Road)

This is a great opportunity to get together with 50 avid travelers who share your passion for exploring the world and learning new tips and tricks on how to do it without breaking the bank.  The advantage of this event over other similar events is the size. We limit the group to 50 so that you can meet everyone, share ideas with the entire group and walk away with new friends and resources.
