Signature Travel Network recently conducted its 21st consecutive "Horizon Club" incentive trip for its top producing member agencies.
This year, Signature’s senior management hosted 30 top performing members on a Paul Gauguin (www.pgcruises.com) cruise from Tahiti. The group visited the islands of Huahine, Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea.
Every year, Signature invites its leading member agencies on a special outing as recognition for their accomplishments the prior year.
During this year's cruise, Signature members also attended special business meetings and private events to discuss market trends and new opportunities and to preview initiatives planned for the rest of the year.
"The Horizon Club 2014 Cruise was one of the most memorable trips I have ever taken. I cannot say enough good things about my time on the Paul Gauguin," said Craig Carter, president of Luxe Travel, a participating Signature member. "The opportunity to network with fellow members and the senior team at Signature was invaluable."
As part of the week-long cruise, participating members enjoyed the best of French Polynesia’s experiences, including scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, hiking and kayaking, among many options offered.
While the Paul Gauguin was in port in Bora Bora, Signature members enjoyed a VIP reception and dinner at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa. This event was hosted by Tahiti Tourism, Tahiti Legends and InterContinental Hotels of French Polynesia.
Before and after the cruise, participating Signature members also experienced some of the top resorts in the region with special pre and post cruise stays.
“I am very proud of the fact that Signature has conducted a special incentive trip for our top members for so many years,” stated Alex Sharpe, president of Signature. “Our Horizon program is our way of recognizing and celebrating our leading member travel companies for their success and encouraging everyone in our network to meet and exceed our ambitious sales objectives.”
