The spring 2012 regional roundtables concluded with record attendance in all seven locations. These "grassroots" meetings provided fun and stimulating networking opportunies to generate themes and ideas for ETC 2013, scheduled for January 22-27 in Orlando, Florida. Attendees enjoyed morning discussions of timely trends, a complimentary luncheon sponsored by Avalon Waterways, and small group breakouts in the afternoon. In this relaxed but engaging atmosphere, ideas flowed freely and greater clarity was obtained as to how the next ETC conference could best serve the educational travel community.
