Until we meet again in person, we can stay connected with virtual business sessions. These pre-scheduled, 15-minute appointments offer Buyers and Sellers dedicated time to share what they’ve learned during this tumultuous year, obtain information on the future of travel from suppliers, and create or strengthen their business relationships.
Buyer and Seller appointment-takers have the opportunity to request appointments through the appointment portal. SYTA requests that Tour Operator members take a minimum of one book of appointments.
Tour Operators: Complimentary
Registration includes one book of appointments for the company. An additional Tour Operator from the same company may join/share the virtual appointments. Also have an opportunity for a second book of appointments.
Suppliers: Complimentary, for 2020-2021 memberships.
Join or renew by October 7th to receive access to this event! Registration includes only one appointment book per company. An additional Supplier from the same company may join/share the virtual appointments.

SYTA’s Business Sessions offer 15-minute pre-scheduled appointments, where Buyers and Sellers obtain information and create business relationships. We have built in 10-minute breaks between each appointment. You may have up to 6 pre-scheduled appointments per session or a up to 24 total appointments throughout the two days.
Testing Video & Audio – Please read the following carefully:
Make sure you are prepared to do business by testing your audio, video, Internet connection, and firewall before your first virtual appointment. Learn about the features available during your appointments. Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox are the preferred browsers for Windows. Brave and Internet Explorer are known to have issues. Safari is the preferred browser on Mac and iPad. You might need to go to your device settings for the browser and device to allow camera and microphone. You must use a laptop, desktop computer, or newer models of the iPad to attend the virtual appointment sessions. Be aware that iPads will not allow you to share your screen. iPhones will not work. While in your meetings, do not open the appointments page in more than ONE browser window or on multiple devices as it will cause feedback.
Things To Know For Your Appointments:
- From the appointment schedule view, your video will automatically start at the beginning of each appointment. It might take up to 30 seconds to launch, depending on your internet speed.
- Allow access to your audio and video when prompted.
- Your appointment will automatically end after 15 minutes and you will be switched to the next appointment after the 10 minute break.
- If you accidentally close your video, simply click on “Start Appointment” button to rejoin the meeting
- When you receive a pop up warning “Your next appointment will start automatically in 10 minutes”, begin wrapping up your current appointment.
