FAQ

When choosing event destinations, we carefully evaluate multiple factors to ensure that we provide the best possible experiences around the world.

Considerations include:

  • Collaboration with our Preferred Partners to showcase diverse destinations so that Members and Partners can experience a destination and then share them with their clients.
  • Emerging destinations that we believe Virtuoso travelers will want to discover or destinations that have historically had lasting and broad appeal.
  • Offering events in different locations globally, so that travel duration and expenses are not disproportionate for Members and Partners in any one region over time.
  • Our selection process also considers practical considerations such as transportation options as well as hotel and meeting space capacity.
These small-scale networking events may last a few hours to a half day, allowing you to meet with a range of Virtuoso Preferred Partners. While locations and agenda details will vary, each Virtuoso Connects is designed for you to explore new Partner experiences, deepen relationships, and discover the latest offerings for your clients.

Virtuoso Connects are events for all Members (Front-Line Advisors, Independent Contractors, Agency Owners & Managers) and Preferred Partners. 

  • Members – No. Registration is available on first come, first served.
  • Partners - Yes, because space is limited, we ask that you request to attend to ensure that Partners of all types and sizes are equally represented at the event.
    • Important Note: Please do not make air travel arrangements until we confirm your request. Per our cancellation policy, submitting a "Request to Attend" means you are fully committed to attending the entire event. 

Registration will open January 31, 2024 at 10:00 AM CST and close September 26, 2024 at 11:59 PM CST.

Your registration to attend a Virtuoso event is a commitment to attend. Your registration affects availability for other attendees because each event has limited capacity.

 
After September 26, 2024 cancellation penalties apply if you:
  • Cancel your registration
  • Fail to complete your registration
  • Fail to attend the event
Virtuoso will not provide refunds for any portion of the event registration fee or accommodation costs.  Cancellation penalties cannot be used as a credit toward a future event.  Virtuoso encourages you to purchase travel insurance through one of our Preferred Partners to protect your travel investment.

For any advisors who cancel after the September 26, 2024 deadline, or no-show at the actual event will be charged a $50 late cancellation penalty.
