Signature Travel Network celebrated the sales success of 65 of its most prominent members last week on its inaugural Member Appreciation Cruise on board AmaWaterway’s AmaPrima, sailing on the Danube River from Vilshofen, Germany to Budapest, Hungary.

Alex Sharpe, Signature’s president and CEO, escorted the group along with five other Signature personnel. Each member of the Signature team represented a core program area, ranging from training and member services to technology and preferred products.

“This inaugural Member Appreciation Cruise was an invaluable time for members to exchange their best practices, and for the Signature team to network with its members. AmaWaterways is a longstanding and incredibly supportive Signature partner. We return home with an even clearer understanding of the AmaWaterways difference,” Sharpe stated.

AmaWaterway’s president, Rudi Schreiner; executive vice president, Kristin Karst; and group specialist, Letty Padilla, hosted the group. 

Karst stated, “AmaWaterways is deeply committed to working together with our travel agency partners, including our valued Signature Travel Network members, to help maximize their growth potential and overall success. We’re proud to continue finding new ways to ensure our partners know just how important they are to us, from educational trips, to face-to-face meetings and our comprehensive travel agent portal.”

Monika Leuenberger, owner and president of Avenues of the World Travel in Flagstaff, AZ, expressed her excitement and appreciation, “The AmaWaterways river cruise was exceptional. The networking, fantastic experiences offered on and off the ship, as well as the diversity and quality of the shore events were wonderful.”

Details for the 2016 Member Appreciation trip will be announced in the coming months.
