We truly believe that knowledge is power -- the more our agents know, the more power they’ll have to sell travel and give clients a positive, memorable experience. Because of our well-established relationships with travel suppliers and other travel industry groups, our agents have access to a variety of industry events across the United States.
At these events, our agents learn more about their travel specialties, develop new skills to help them expand their businesses, and network with travel professionals from around the country. These exclusive opportunities are full of useful information, and they’re fun!

We ended our 2017 live event schedule on a high note last week at our October Boot Camp for new travel agents. Our team welcomed 39 travel agents from around the country to Northeast Ohio for three days of professional development, networking, and hands-on instruction. The first day at our corporate office truly laid the foundation for the rest of the event, with sessions on Building on Your Past and Passion, Building a Business Mindset, and Building a Marketing Mindset. Thursday was heavily focused on cruising, with presentations from our friendly Carnival Cruise Line BDM Chris Schutz and a hands-on cruise booking workshop following lunch. After lunch on Friday, agents heard from our Preferred Supplier Apple Vacations and also walked through bookings in Apple’s travel agent website.
