PLANO, Texas, July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- During the weekend, more than 17,000 WorldVentures Independent Representatives from around the country converged on Miami, Fla. for its U.S. sales training event, held at the American Airlines area.
As part of the event the company announced the This Is Next promotion for its new SmartCard in development. Between July 16–Aug. 26 the first 1,000 qualified U.S.-based Representatives will earn the right to purchase the new SmartCard to be used during the beta testing period targeted for end of Q4.
The technologically innovative SmartCard being designed and produced exclusively for WorldVentures with NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTD) is a unique card that serves to securely store credit and loyalty cards. Among other features, the SmartCard seamlessly integrates with the DreamTrips™ mobile app to wirelessly check in and earn loyalty points towards DreamTrips vacations from participating restaurants. The strategic alliance was announced in a news release on Jan. 4 and first introduced to the WorldVentures Independent Representatives at the annual UNITED conference Jan. 2016.
"In this high-tech, hyper-connected world, we are enabling people to use technology in a more powerful and compelling way," said Wayne Nugent, World Ventures Founder and Chief Visionary Officer. "And our Independent Representatives will be able to bring this exciting new innovation to travelers all over the world, making their experiences richer, safer, and more engaging and rewarding."
And in the spirit of the WorldVentures Foundation "Heart to Serve", WorldVentures Independent Representatives kicked off the weekend by coming together on the morning of Friday, Jul. 15 for the traditional pre-event Volunteer Day. A group of 100 volunteers provided a field day for the children at the Kendall Boys & Girls Club in Miami. Being on summer break, the kids were able to participate in a fun-filled morning of hula hoop contests, egg tosses, 3-legged races and other games.
"There was so much enthusiasm from our Reps to really make a difference in the lives of kids in Miami," said WorldVentures Foundation Executive Director Gwyneth Lloyd.
