It’s Convention Week!

It’s convention week!! Hello and good afternoon RTV. It’s virtual tour convention week here in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan.  The temperature this week is going to be in low seventies and high sixties.  While there won’t be any swimming, or wake boarding behind the RTV Donzi Boat,  the Park Place Hotel has a wonderful dome shaped glass windowed pool, a hot tub, tanning booth, and a sauna for you all to enjoy.  At least we won’t be making snowmen like we did at last year’s convention.  We’re working very hard to prepare for all you virtual tour providers coming to the show, and also working very hard chopping through the final edits to the new RealTour Fusion virtual tour platform.  We’re currently still standing at about sixty edit requests to the new system so please be patient with us as we work through these and launch.

For those of you who already have a Fusion account setup. Please note that your login access point has been moved.  Please check today’s email for the new access point. We’re setting it up this way so we have a universal access point for all user types.  Additionally we’re now using your email address as your username in the system and the system will automatically detect your user account type.  If you have trouble logging in please contact Julie Lynn at the number below.

For those of you who do not yet have a Fusion beta account setup yet please feel free to call in and get yours setup this week. Especially if you’re attending the convention. To get your own Fusion beta account setup, please contact Julie Lynn at 231-947-0684.  She will open up your account and put in some tour credits so you can try out the new system. There is no cost to setup a beta account so be sure to call in.   We’re going to be taking your setup requests in the order in which you call in and also giving preference to those attending the convention since those individuals will need their own accounts for training on the new system during the convention. It’s looking quite nice!

Finally and most importantly, today is the last day you can purchase your tickets to the convention as we’re submitting our final head count to the Park Place.  Register here if you have not already done so: I believe the Park Place Hotel is at full capacity or very close. Not to worry however since there are many other hotels nearby for you to stay at.  In fact there’s a Holiday Inn within walking distance from the Park Place.  

That’s all for now.  See you soon convention attendees!! For those of you not attending the convention we’ll be making a DVD of the convention events and classes for you to purchase.  We’ll also be holding this year’s first episode of The FORMULA and The IMAGE immediately after Fusion launches so I’ll plan on seeing you on the shows. Thank you all for your continued support and dedication to our product line.

Yours Sincerely,


PS. We don’t really have a Donzi.
