Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, has announced the theme and highlights of its Cruise Planners 2015 Annual Convention, which has sold out.
The event's theme, ReGENerate, aims to encourage agents to re-fuel and realign business strategies and tools for greater success across multiple generations through group business, specialty travel and niche markets, Cruise Planners said.
“We are going to explore the characteristics and buying habits of all generations and better position our travel advisors as the best option for buying travel for all age groups,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and co-founder of Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative.
Travel advisors will attend multiple days of training, including CLIA certification classes, a destination immersion event called “Flavors of the World,” romance travel breakouts, and many partner presentations, including presentations from cruise line presidents Christine Duffy and Andy Stuart. Also, there will be an event expo featuring more than 150 travel industry partners. To kick it all off, Cruise Planners’ executives and owners will present a state of the union focused around the company’s annual growth, industry trends, new technology innovations, additional training opportunities and other announcements from Cruise Planners.
The first few days of the annual convention will be held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, and will feature interactive workshops, panels and presentations from the industry’s top travel and destination partners. After the land portion of the convention, hundreds of agents will sail on the inaugural sailing of Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Norwegian Escape out of PortMiami.
