    One of the more relevant and important discussions at Virtuoso Travel Week were laid out during the ASTA & Virtuoso Meeting for Owners and Managers during Virtuoso Travel Week. As you may know, ASTA and Virtuoso have stood shoulder to shoulder to champion the cause of Travel Advisors and Travel Agencies during this pandemic.

    ASTA PAC has been working with our Congressional representatives for several years now and it is the very special relationship that they have nurtured over the years that paid off big time in getting the interests of the Travel Agency community front and center with Congress. The Cares ACT which passed in March, for the first time got real unemployment relief to Independent Contractors in the travel industry… in addition to the PP the SBA Emergency Disaster loans.
