Fathom president to speak at CoNexion 2016 event this fall

Fathom president Tara Russell will be a keynote speaker at Nexion’s 2016 conference, taking place in San Diego.

The theme for this year’s annual CoNexion is ‘Building Bridges’ and attendees will have the opportunity to build bridges to new sales opportunities, new industry relationships and new tools and technology to increase efficiency.

CoNexion 2016 will convene at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, Sept.14 – 17.
“Every year CoNexion is a celebration of our agents, and it’s also a time to renew our efforts in providing and highlighting all the opportunities Nexion travel agents have to expand their knowledge and expertise, while increasing the revenue generated by their businesses,” said Nexion President Jackie Friedman, CTC, CTIE.

Russell will share her insights on Cuba travel and the new social impact cruise opportunities that offer travelers a compelling option to combine one’s love of travel with the desire to make a difference in the world. Russell generated the idea for Fathom in 2013 and led the research, design and development of the brand. Fathom’s first, historic journey to Cuba sailed earlier this month.

In 2014 she was invited by the World Economic Forum to join the global leader community and to be a Founding Curator for Global Shapers World Economic Forum Community.

Also featured as a keynote speaker at CoNexion 2016 will be solopreneur, speaker, business coach and author Stuart Cohen.

Nearly 50 workshops will be offered at CoNexion 2016, plus opportunities to hear and learn from top industry executives, and meet with supplier partners during supplier roundtables and the extensive trade show.
