Visit California joined 6,000 luxury travel advisors — including delegates from partners Greater Palm Springs, Visit Santa Barbara, Visit Napa Valley and Visit West Hollywood — for the 4-day Virtuoso Virtual Travel Week, Aug. 10-13, 2020. 

The organization hosted 95 meetings, 70% with domestic advisors and 30% international, a reversal from past years, where international comprised the majority of luxury travel trade. The team also conducted a webinar leading up to Travel Week show that informed 115 advisors learning about the latest in California’s culinary scene.
