                         YTB is "Cleared for Takeoff"
                          2007 National Convention,
                         A Look "Behind the Scenes"
              What happens when 10,800 RTAs, Reps, friends and guests converge on the
              America's Center in St. Louis for YTB's National Convention? You have an event to
That's what happened last week. It was all there, from a magnificent set and stage
design, to a teeming crowd of enthusiastic YTB fans. When the YTB Directors lined
up across the stage in the first general session, it was a glorious sight to behold,
seeing them standing shoulder to shoulder in their captain's hats and shirts. 135
Directors, partners and spouses placed almost 300 uniformed leaders across the
210 ft. wide stage.

Six general sessions, a pep rally, the Directors Meeting and Dinner, and YTB
University's 132 classes were planned and executed by a super team of dedicated
professionals. YTB's staff of 255 plus outside professionals worked hard to engineer
and deliver this memorable event.

The first impression, and perhaps the boldest, was the stage set: A giant aircraft,
YTB Flight 817, commanded center stage. With a wingspan of 190 ft. and engines
roaring, the aircraft soared above a fabulous stage, consisting of a Carnival cruise
ship, YTB hotel and golf course. This whole creation was the genius of YTB's
Special Projects Manager Frank Brummett and the Beryl Martin company. Frank
and his talented team conceived, designed and developed the theme (on a napkin
at last year's convention), constructed, delivered (in 24 tractor trailer rigs), and
installed the huge stage set for the convention, along with the registration areas and
baggage claim. Many thanks go to Frank and his team for the months of hard work
and a stage set for the record books.
We must also give a special acknowledgment to YTB's brilliant Audio Visual
Department, under the supervision of Director of AV Technology Allen Keilman.
Allen and his technical team designed, developed, and directed the audio and visual
effects for the production. YTB just acquired the latest hi-definition A/V technology,
which you enjoyed on some thirty monitors placed throughout the grand meeting
areas, and we are editing miles of footage for a DVD recapping the event. Great
work, Allen and YTB's AV Team of professionals!

You saw a couple hundred red-vested "YTB Team" members running around all
over the place from Tuesday through Sunday. Those were our fine YTB home office
staff members, setting up and serving you at the registration areas, YTB University,
in the YTB Store, and back stage and on-stage as the YTB Awards Team. Long,
hard hours, aching backs, and some sore feet, but I'll bet you saw some helpful,
friendly, and smiling faces eager to assist. (You'll get the same hospitality at Red
Carpet Days from these fantastic people.) And they were having as much fun as you
at the convention. We do so love and appreciate our great home office team.

The event was planned and managed by our "NatCon Planning Team," of Sandy,
Frank, Allen, Eric, Amy, Butch, Darlene, Ember, Amanda, Eric, Duane, Tim, Josh,
Aaron, Julie, Gwen, and of course, Coach, Scott, and Kim. Thanks to all of you for
one year of planning and project management.

And thank YOU for coming! We do it all for you, our valued Reps and RTAs. Thank
you for supporting this event, catching the YTB vision, and working to make YTB the
number one travel company in the world!

Next year? You just wait! Planning is well underway for the event of the decade: the
YTB 2008 National Convention. We are expecting some 30,000 enthusiastic YTBers
at the Edward Jones Dome stadium at the America's Center (home of the St. Louis
Rams) for next year's extravaganza. There'll be plenty of reserved seating for all in
the stadium, and more YTBU sessions held in larger classrooms with ticketed
admission. We will see you there!
