SYTA’s Business Sessions are where Buyers/Tour Operators and Sellers/Suppliers meet to create business relationships. Our Annual Conference provides pre-scheduled, six-minute appointments throughout Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. These quick appointments are designed to act as an in-person introduction that would otherwise take place via phone, email, or webcam communication. Appointment takers can digitally view sales sheets and company profiles prior to the conference, so you can have your questions and “elevator pitch” ready. If further discussion is needed, you’re encouraged to connect at a later time and converse in more detail. We strongly recommend attending all Conference events.
Note: SYTA does not provide DMO/CVB/Receptive Operator Only Sessions. Please plan to attend the entire conference as your appointments may be scheduled across all three days.


The online SYTA Appointment Portal will be available for profile creation, research and appointment requests. All appointment-taking attendees will receive an email with Login ID and password information when the portal is ready.

Please note, Seller appointments are scheduled throughout all six business sessions, wherever a buyer has availability. If you would like to consolidate your appointments, you can block two of the six sessions and the system will attempt to schedule your requests within the four sessions.

NOTE: All appointments are assigned by an automated algorithm. Therefore, SYTA cannot confirm which sessions will be booked before releasing final schedules.
