SPONSORSHIP & FUNDRAISING DIRECTOR - 

KATHERYNNE SANTOS

"At least once a year, you should go someplace you've never been before."

Katherynne Santos merged her passion to travel and her love of weddings to create KGS Events and Travel in 2013. She is a certified Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, & Luxury Specialist, as well as a Certified Destionation Wedding & Event Planner. She offers clients her undivided attention to create their vision of the perfect event. She takes pride in continually educating herself through coursework and extensive travels so she can have ever-changing experienced and build relationships with suppliers and other travel advisors ... all to better serve her client.

To further her education and staying on top of industry trends, she has a Certificate of Achievement and Skills in Travel Marketing, a Certificate of Hospitality and Tourism Management, and currently serves on the Board for ASTA SBN San Francisco Chapter. While she loves lounging on the beaches of Hawaii, , Mexico & the Caribbean, she has stayed in centuries-old seaside villages of Cinque Terre, Italy, experienced vibrant food scenes in Hong Kong and Singapore, swam with sharks and rays in Tahiti, white water rafting on a Class 4/5 in Costa Rica, flew in a seaplane over glaciers in Alaska and crossed off one bucket list, the Taj Mahal India.

 

One of her favorite destinations is Austria for its majestic mountains, opulent palaces, high culture, baroque architecture and amazing people she now calls friends. Plus, who doesn’t like The Sound of Music in Salzburg?! She is excited to share Engage Tourism’s vision with other travel advisors, the travel industry and the traveling public.

Engage Tourism was founded in 2020 due to an innate need for education and engagement within the hospitality and tourism industry. While there may be many similar organizations crafted to a specific niche in the industry, none focused on the collaboration of veteran professionals and the younger generation of travel & hospitality professionals.

Engage Tourism was developed to bridge the gap for those who are willing to share their industry knowledge and those seeking it.
