Five of the travel industry’s top representation companies have come together to create RepFest, a first of its kind virtual showcase, featuring some of the best travel experiences in the world. Representation firms Kartagener Associates Inc (KAI), Janine Cifelli Representation, Index Select, TL Portfolio and Bennett + Mercado Hospitality have come together to produce the event.
“Unprecedented times call for unprecedented collaboration,” says Dave Kartagener, president of KAI. “Quite simply, we are stronger together.”
Modelled after a music festival, RepFest will span two full days (October 28 and 29), and highlight more than 120 (30-minute) sessions across 5 virtual stages.
“It will be an epic travel festival guaranteed to inspire,” says Beatrice Mercado, co-president of Bennett-Mercado.
Festival-goers may participate as they wish, selecting the content that most interests them and the clientele they serve. Fun sessions like yoga and cooking classes will also be offered. And a keynote address will be delivered by Ndaba Mandela, grandson of Nelson Mandela.
While the content is being curated to cater to the luxury travel trade in North America all are welcome to join the festivities. Every session is meant to Inspire & Educate.
Sessions take place October 28 (9am – 7pm EST) and October 29 (12pm – 8pm EST). Ticket price is $20.21 because we are done with 2020 and ready to look ahead to 2021.
Registration includes access to all content both days, as well as to a comprehensive resource centre to learn more about the hosting destinations, suppliers and partners. Additionally, attendees will have access to ‘The Vault’ to view any/all sessions for the 30 days following the end of RepFest.
All profits will benefit Every Mother Counts, a charity working to achieve quality, respectful, and equitable maternity care for women around the world.

RepFest will feature more than 100 sessions (30 minutes each). Again, breaking from the norm, these sessions will not be your typical vendor presentations. All sessions are outside the box on the places, people and experiences we know and love from around the globe. There are no appointments, no sponsors, no hidden agenda – just amazing content.
To make RepFest even better, all profits from RepFest will benefit Every Mother Counts. You read that right – a travel conference that doesn’t want to make money! Registration for RepFest is $20.21 (because we are all ready to put 2020 behind us) and gives you access to all content over the two days as well as access to a comprehensive resource centre to learn more about all of the amazing destinations, suppliers and partners that host a session. We are thrilled and honoured to be able to welcome Ndaba Mandela as our keynote speaker on Thursday, October 29th.
