ASTA may have a top name in the diplomatic world lined up as a keynote speaker for its annual meeting in Miami this September.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is said to have accepted the chance to address the ASTA Global Convention, scheduled for Sept. 17-19 at the Hyatt Regency Miami.
ASTA responded to an inquiry about the news by saying it had no announcement. "I cannot confirm that Hillary Clinton will be speaking at the meeting," said an ASTA spokeswoman.
One source who attended the recent ASTA International Destination Expo in Dubai said an ASTA official there had announced Clinton would speak at the fall meeting. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
