Home-Based Travel Agents Flock To Day 1 of Agent@Home Online Expo
Digital Events & Seminars, a division of travAlliancemedia, concluded the first day of their 2015 Agent@Home Expo with 1,100 home-based travel agents attending to get the information they need to better market themselves and their businesses and increase their travel sales. The Agent@Home Expo is the largest online show for home-based agents in the industry today.
Fiften suppliers and destinations signed on to make sure that these agents knew who they were, what they sold and gave them the tools they needed to help agents better sell their product or destination to their clients. These suppliers support the home-based travel market, knowing fully well that only 5 percent of travel agents ever make it to a physical event.
Where else can agents get the information they need to succeed? The Agent@Home Expo. By creating this socially driven platform, we have replicated the physical event experience but from the convenience of a travel agent’s home or office. As one agent, Linda Akers stated during the expo, “ I’m going dizzy - this is as good as face to face in a trade show. Thank you for putting this together!”
Day one of the expo included a live webinar presentation, “Selling the Luxury Resort Experience” with Elegant Hotels & Resorts and Grand Lucayan. Almost 400 agents got to virtually experience their properties through live presentations and discover all they have to offer their clients.
This year the expo has some exciting seminars in the Industry Insights area. Hear from our award-winning editors about what's going on in the industry today. Get an exclusive look at trends in the Caribbean, Mexico and South America plus learn what's happening with millennials and discover how to tap into that very lucrative market. Then, watch two very important workshops that will give agents tips on how to build their personal brand and learn how to market themselves online.
Day two of the 2014 Agent@Home Expo will open Thursday, March 26th at 2:00pm ET. At 2:30 p.m., join Mark Murphy as he shares how to market your business as a home-based agent. Learn about the choices, the challenges and better yet, the opportunities you can take advantage of. During this live presentation, Mark will make a very special announcement about Agent Studio – it’s a webinar not to miss.
Agents can also visit the prize center and learn how they can win some amazing prizes including overnight getaways, iPads, customized websites and more. Then, they can network with their colleagues and our award-winning editors in the Networking Lounge.
Whether you have a few minutes or a few hours to spend with us tomorrow, you don’t want to miss out on the last live day of the expo.
