TORONTO — There’s no shortage of travel industry events in September and every one offers something a little different. At yesterday’s Visit California breakfast, attendees were treated to a morning of relaxing yoga and meditation, all with an eye to promoting the Golden State’s expansive wellness product offering as well as new hotels, new attractions and new opportunities for agents selling California.
Held at The Argonaut Rowing Club in Toronto, the event was hosted by Visit California and many of its reps from travel suppliers across the state. Attendees were greeted by sunshine and beautiful views of Lake Ontario, and there was a yellow theme throughout the rooms, from bundled lemons in the shape of California state, to yellow yoga mats, to lemon water to start the morning.
The wellness-themed event made for a great start to the day and included healthy breakfast options such as homemade granola yogurt parfaits and zucchini muffins with chocolate, to satisfy sweets cravings.
Following the wellness and meditation session there were product updates from the team’s 10 representatives.
