Have you ever tried to shepherd a high school marching band from South Dakota to Orlando, Florida? Kory Vrieze, a Director with Group Travel Odyssey (GTO) has firsthand experiences in just that. Having begun his career in public education, Kory quickly recognized the value of travel in the development of young minds. He believes it’s an opportunity every student should be afforded. 


Unfortunately, group travel can be cumbersome, complicated, and chaotic. GTO applies technology to mitigate the chaos and streamline the group travel experience. By consolidating all aspects of group travel from marketing and accounting to tour operations and on-the-road management into one convenient, easy-to-use package, GTO puts all your trip information at your fingertips.


“It may sound corny but I’ve seen enough of the world to know that the U.S. gets a lot of things right – not everything,” said Kory. “I’m excited to add my and GTO’s voice to Travel Tech’s efforts in Washington, DC. It’s critical that our industry educates lawmakers on the immense power technology holds to open up the world of travel to everyone.”
