WorldVentures, the leading direct seller of global travel and leisure club memberships, drew 5,700 attendees to BootCamp a major training event held at the Star in Frisco, Texas, from July 19-21, 2019.
BootCamp brings WorldVentures Independent Representatives together from markets around the world to advance their skills, recognize their accomplishments and provide incomparable business training.
“Leadership is not about being bulletproof. It’s about authenticity and commitment. At BootCamp, we teach Representatives how to take accountability and become purposeful leaders,”
CEO of WorldVentures Josh Paine said.
In addition to providing valuable information and training for Representatives, WorldVentures events positively impact local economies through increased hotel, dining and activity spending.
BootCamp’s 5,700 attendees stayed an average of three nights for the event. According to Budget Your Trip, visitors to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex typically spend approximately $103 per person, per day, making a potential overall financial contribution of more than $1,761,300 to the economy in Frisco during the weekend of the event.
The Frisco event was preceded by volunteer efforts in the local community, held by the WorldVentures Foundation. On Friday, July 19, the WorldVentures Foundation presented a DreamStation to the Plano Boys & Girls Club, its sixth donation so far to ensure kids have internet access to further their education, research and learn new technology and online activities with the assistance of volunteers and club representatives.
DreamStations are mobile storage units that can secure and charge up to a dozen laptops or tablets at once. More than 34 WorldVentures Foundation volunteers were also on hand to renovate, paint, clean and beautify the club for the more than 200 kids who are involved in the program.
