WHY IT RATES: Conducting such far-reaching, comprehensive events can only strengthen the synergy of agents and TI’s agent-centric tour operator business — and there were plenty of bonuses and perks available to those attended more than one. - Michael Isenbek, TravelPulse Senior Editor
Travel Impressions welcomed more than 2,000 agents during its 22-city North American Destination Showcase series which brought together travel professionals for educational presentations, supplier tradeshows and networking opportunities, as well as dining and chances to win prizes from Travel Impressions’ suppliers, including air-inclusive vacation packages.
Throughout the multi-city series, Travel Impressions executives, including regional Business Development Managers, provided presentations highlighting The Travel Impressions’ Difference and what the agent-centric tour operator provides as tools for agents.
Agents were able to meet with representatives at more than 525 supplier tradeshow booths demonstrating Travel Impressions’ breadth of product.
As an added incentive, agents who attended one or more of the Destination Showcase series programs received LoyalTI First Bonus Points. Points can be redeemed toward a wide variety of rewards via Travel Impressions’ electronic Folio Reward Catalogs.
