Outrigger Announces 2010 Agent Training Promotions

The revitalized Outrigger Hospitality Specialist Program, launched in January 2009, has certified almost 4,000 travel agents so far. According to Lois Shore, vice president of distribution for Outrigger Hospitality, the majority of these agents have claimed cash rewards for a significant number of bookings in 2009.

In addition to the training program, Outrigger Hospitality's 2009 enhanced travel agent strategy also featured a first-ever dedicated website—OutriggerAgent.com—which offers agent-only information and fast facts on all Outrigger-owned, managed and affiliated hotels, resorts, and condominiums, plus helpful tips and valuable agent alerts.
