My wife and I are fortunate in being able to travel frequently, both in the United States and internationally. Recently we had the pleasure of flying on Cathay Pacific Airways.

Some are along for the first time and not even sure which events they will attend. Others are veterans of this sort of thing, and their itineraries are planned down to the minute. Most had to know at least one influential person to be invited. Others hope to meet a lot of influential people by the time it is all over.
