On June 21, Outside Sales Support Network (OSSN) and CCRA Travel Commerce Network hosted their first-ever “FirstNight” event at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. Over 200 travel agent members attended the event and had the chance to take a ride on The Strip’s High Roller wheel, network with suppliers and partners and attend the Home-Based Travel Agent Forum, presented by OSSN.
In 2014, OSSN became a subsidiary of CCRA and has since seen a rise in active membership and additional chapters across the United States. The industry trade association for independent travel agents has built new branding techniques, a social media presence and plans to re-launch its website by the end of the summer. This past spring, OSSN also began streaming weekly marketing training webinars to help independent agents promote their businesses.
For travel agents who missed the Home-Based Travel Agent Forum, CCRA is offering three more PowerSolutions events this year. Members can attend the event in Washington, DC on September 8, Long Island, New York on October 13 and Newark, New Jersey on October 14.
