Avanti’s Open House – An Event to Remember

Thanks to all of you who attended our Open House. For us, it was a great opportunity to discuss our new products and give you the chance to meet our staff and European suppliers. Here are some highlights (and photos!) from the evening:

If you weren’t able to attend and you’re ever in the area, I’d be happy to give you a private tour of the office.

About Gina

After adventuring through Europe as an exchange student during high school, I always knew that I would work in a field that required me to travel. Lucky for me I was right! Over the past 8 years, my career at Avanti has spanned a few departments including Reservations, Customer Relations and Sales. My current position as Avanti's Inside Sales Manager allows me to interact with our staff, customers and partners - a perfect fit for me! Out of the office, I'm pursuing my other interests - cooking, crafting and entertaining...whilst planning my next getaway.
