We'll have a good mix of dealers and vendors, which will make the trip exciting. We've introduced so many new things this year, like aromatherapy and the Fiji, that we'll have lots to talk about.
The trip starts off Sunday night with a Welcome Reception & Dinner by the pool. This is a great platform for the dealers to meet each other and the key personnel at Viking. Monday is activity day for the group (this is the day I firm up all of the details for the rest of the trip). On Tuesday we have a Dealer Meeting; this is where the dealers learn about 2009 initiatives and get to talk about issues/successes they're having. On Wednesday we have a Vendor Meeting in the morning where the dealers get to talk to our suppliers like Jandy and Fiberstars. Later that evening we have an Awards Reception & Dinner which is really nice. Each dealer receives an award and every dealer hopes to walk away the the prestigious Dealer of the Year Award.
