“When you’re dealing with Cadence, you’re dealing with one of the best.”- Matthew Upchurch, CEO + Chairman of Virtuoso

a brand with roots

Cadence was founded in 1995 in La Jolla, CA with just three employees- one including CEO + Founder Wendy Burk herself. We've spent over twenty years building relationships that change the way advisors plan travel.

Today, Cadence is an internationally recognized, full service travel management group with three divisions: Managed Business Travel, Meetings + Incentives Travel, and Leisure (with over 150 passionate independent travel specialists both in-house and around the world!)

To add value, savings and earning potential, we hold strategic partnerships with most recognized hotels, cruise lines and tour operators in the industry. You'll be able to give your clients VIP treatment with value added amenities like complimentary upgrades, free breakfast, and exclusive welcome receptions.

Most importantly, Cadence is recognized as a Virtuoso National Account, which means an increased level of resources and support from the consortium.  Less than 1% of travel agencies are members of this exclusive, invitation-only luxury travel network, and we are one of their top ten agencies.
