After a successful first year, industry educator Stuart Cohen will bring back his free, online event, the Group Sales Success Summit, on April 1 to 7.

This year's summit will focus on niches. Each day, videos will be posted online for agents to watch at their leisure. Access is free during the summit, and permanent access can be purchased after the event has concluded.

"My primary mission is to help these agents, so I want as many as possible to take advantage of it," Cohen said.

Around 2,500 agents participated in last year's summit.

Cohen just announced this year's kickoff keynote speakers, Royal Caribbean International's Vicki Freed and Laurie Bohn-Isaure. Freed is the cruise line's senior vice president of sales, trade support and service and Bohn-Isaure is associate vice president of national accounts.
