About the Series
The Core of this Event is Connection

Seven years ago, ARC created the TravelConnect conference to bring together travel industry leaders to discuss the trends shaping the future of travel. At the core of this event is connection: TravelConnect is designed to spark meaningful conversations across the travel ecosystem.

Valuable, Timely Content & Connections

These conversations remain just as important — maybe more so — in the wake of COVID-19. However, the needs of our industry have changed. ARC seeks to deliver the valuable, timely content and connections of TravelConnect while adapting to the needs of our customers during this challenging time.

Free Virtual Series

ARC will host a free TravelConnect virtual series of events throughout 2020 and beyond, bringing together industry leaders for valuable conversations, and providing opportunities for attendees to connect with each other. These virtual events will replace the 2020 in-person conference originally scheduled for October, which is now cancelled, propelling ARC and the industry into 2021.
