Carnival Welcoming Daymond John as Featured Speaker for Sept. 27 Event

Registration is now open for Carnival Cruise Line’s Your Winning Plan series finale, where several outstanding travel advisors are competing to be named the grand prize winner when celebrated entrepreneur Daymond John, star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” helps to conclude the series in Houston, Tex. on Sept. 27. Registration for both in-person attendance and the online livestream are available by clicking here.

The grand finale event will culminate a competition between semi-finalists chosen from six in-person events across six different cities – San Jose, Calif., Detroit, Mich., Las Vegas, Nev., Nashville, Tenn., Denver, Colo., Richmond, Va., and one virtual event. The summer series gave hundreds of travel advisors across the country opportunities for learning, development and business growth. Carnival invited the advisors to submit business plans and compete for cash to use toward implementing them, with semi-finalists receiving $2,500. More than 1,000 plans were submitted during the series and a semi-finalist from each event will now compete for a $5,000 grand prize.

Carnival expects to host thousands of travel advisors in Houston at the grand finale event. Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president, will join John during the event to discuss tips for entrepreneurial success and John will also name the grand prize winner.

The virtual event, which took place on Aug. 5, is available for replay online, so that advisors who could not attend an event may still access the helpful business information shared during the series. To watch the virtual event, visit
