Navigate Growth and Expand Your Business

No matter where you are on your journey, all GTN advisors share a common goal: growing your business. Whether it’s boosting your sales, expanding your partnerships, or adding new members to your team, it’s all about growth.

Join us at the 2025 Symposium, where we’ll dive deep into the topic of business growth. Expect insightful content delivered through dynamic breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, and engaging panels.

New in 2025

The Symposium format is an immersive blend of travel and education. Picture this: days filled with focused learning on specific topics, enriching mealtimes to connect with partners and fellow advisors, and plenty of opportunities to soak up the excitement of our destinations.

In 2025, get ready for new adventures! We’re setting sail with a different cruise line – Avalon. Plus, we’re adding an EXTRA day to maximize the experience. And this time, we’ll be in the beautiful country of France!

FAQs

I paid for and submitted my Request to Attend, when will I find out if I secured a cabin?

GTN will reach out to all advisors that have submitted a Request to Attend by July 19th, to either confirm their spot or let them know they are still on the waitlist.  Keep in mind that space is extremely limited therefore a Request to Attend is not confirmation of attendance. It is set up to allow us to maximize the space and secure attendance for the most advisors as possible.

How do I notify GTN of what cabin type I want and who I am sharing a room with if I selected double occupancy?

On the Request to Attend form, we asked for cabin type, occupancy and roommate name.  If you did not provide us with that information, then please email events@giftedtravelnetwork.com no later than July 18th.  By July 19th, if we have not received all 3 pieces of information, your spot will be forfeited, and you will be refunded.

May I bring a guest with me?

We want to ensure everyone is completely immersed in the learning, networking and training sessions; therefore, guests are not permitted on this trip.  Only a GTN member, booking member, business partner, or non-booking member are permitted.

Do I need travel insurance?

Travel insurance is strongly recommended, and you are responsible for purchasing your own insurance.

Do I need to be vaccinated to attend?

We will follow the COVID policies of the destination and resort including vaccination requirements, if any.

When will I need to start my first payment?

On July 19th you will receive a link for payment.  By August 16th, if you have not submitted payment your spot will be forfeited, and your fees will be refunded.
