The 2025 ASTA Travel Advisor Conference is the meeting place for all facets of the travel industry, and we have something for everyone... literally! Our educational content offers robust topics to help make attendees the best at what they do, whether you're an industry veteran or a newbie. That's why for 2025, we're asking all subject matter experts: What innovative and timely topics do you want to share with your peers?

We're looking for creative ideas, strategies, successes, and need-to-know skills that you think would be ideal for our ASTA member audience as they strive to grow and further develop their travel business. Who is that exactly? Well, from small to mega travel agencies and the largest Host/Consortia, we welcome: 

  • Independent/Self-Employed Travel Advisors 
  • Front-line Advisors and Agency Employees

  • Other: C-Suite Executives, education creators, marketing experts, operations, finance, IT experts, and more!  

We'll select presenters who provide the most compelling topics with an engaging style to present at the conference from May 20-22 in Salt Lake City. As a speaker, you will share your ideas and expertise with our audiences and gain recognition by appearing onstage at the industry's must -attend event. Not only will this enhance your personal and professional reputation, but as a selected speaker, you'll receive complimentary full-event registration.
