The Niche Cruise Marketing Alliance (NCMA) is offering various opportunities for travel professionals attending the Luxury Travel Expo (LTE) to learn about lucrative opportunities offered by specialty cruising. The first is a panel discussion between NCMA’s Executive Director Larry Dessler, Charlie Robertson, president of American Cruise Lines, and Karen Wiseman, vice president North America of Orion Expedition Cruises, at 2 p.m. Tuesday, December 2.
At NCMA's Pavilion (Booth #1119), agents can visit with the member lines and establish business plans and co-op support. Fourteen of the 16 NCMA member lines will be participating in the show.
There will also be a Certified" Niche Cruise Specialist Training program which will take
place during Friday, December 5 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the
Lagoon room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Conference Center. Agents will
receive a proven program of how they can take advantage of the
opportunities that this product segment can provide them and how they
can earn bigger commissions. The program’s normal tuition will be
waived for LTE attendees.
