2 Women-Led Travel Companies Become Luxury Travel Partners

Stacy Small, recognized as the travel industry’s award-winning social media pioneer, is thrilled to announce that she has chosen Cadence as the new Host Travel Agency for her luxury travel company, Elite Travel International.

Founded in 2005, Elite Travel International caters to a digitally savvy and distinguished client base steadily built by Small, known across social channels as @elitetravelgal. Small’s following has grown to 100K+ and along with her 19 independent travel advisors, she manages high-end travel for a global portfolio including Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, TV and film producers, authors, executives, affluent families, celebrities and athletes.

"We were defined as innovative by truly being the first to reach and communicate with our high-end clients digitally. Now, we continue our innovation by scaling with a well-established, growth-focused company like Cadence,” says Small.

“Building a successful boutique travel business through passion and perseverance is something I have in common with Wendy Burk. She built her Host Agency knowing that Independent Affiliates thrive on genuine and powerful relationships that greatly benefit their clients. We look forward to strengthening these relationships together-- our next chapter is all about bigger, better, and more of everything our clients have come to expect from Elite Travel International."

The industry status Cadence brings to Elite Travel International as a travel management group includes a longer list of preferred partnerships with hotels, cruise lines and tour companies, and their status as a National Account with Virtuoso, an invitation-only travel consortia of the world’s top travel companies.

“Stacy and I have the same proactive, strategic approach to our travel businesses, and it has been this way since the very beginning,” says Wendy Burk. "While she was pioneering with her online presence, I was paving the way for the Independent Affiliate trend. Together we will continue to blaze trails in ways that are incredibly crucial and relevant to the customer."
