Happy New Year! I am wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous year ahead for 2019. I was recently golfing in Florida over the holiday, and a mother duck paused in front of my tee box with her 12 ducklings, so naturally, I stopped to take a picture. The image captivated me, which made me think of the 12 months of dedication and determination my employees and I have for the New Year ahead! As I reflect on last year, 2018 was monumental for me.
I was honored to win (American Society of Travel Advisor’s) ASTA’s Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into Business Travel News’ Hall of Fame in New York City in December. I also was named a Godmother again to Riviera Cruise Line’s Robert M. Burns (a famous poet who inspired classics like Auld Lang Syne). My staff has also been keeping busy with events and tradeshows; we are looking forward to attending classics like GBTA and ASTA this year. Our tech has advanced like never before with the launch of the Omega Go App and some new Omegalytics skills.
To start the year off strong, Omega World Travel is honored to once again take the Number 1 spot for the 2019 Washington Business Journal Book of Lists Woman-Owned Company. Also important to note we are Number 11 for Private Owned Companies and Number 20 for Meeting and Event Planners.
I am looking forward to seeing what our Omega Family of Brands* does in 2019!
*Omega family of brands includes Omega World Travel, Inc., Cruise.com, TravTech, and Omega M.I.C.E.
