AIC Hotel Group, which spearheads sales and marketing for Hard Rock, Nobu and UNICO hotels in Mexico and the Caribbean, has launched a new podcast for travel agents, called “This Job Sucks.” The podcast offers biweekly episodes with selling strategies, thoughts and insights from industry experts, answers to travel agent questions on industry news, and AIC Hotel Group updates.
Hosted by Daniel Jimenez, business development manager at AIC Hotel Group, each episode will air bi-weekly and dives into brand initiatives and specific topics in the realm of hospitality and travel. The podcast will also aim to give listeners a better understanding of AIC Hotel Group’s strategies and touch on controversial subjects through informative, lighthearted and fun chatter.
The podcast also covers funny anecdotes, a touch on controversial topics, travel agent Q & A’s and never-before-told stories of how some of AIC Hotel Group’s signature events came to fruition. The audio series will also have interviews with the brand’s executives, business partners, hotel general managers, and other special guests to bring listeners real conversations and important takeaways that can be applied to their daily business practices.
In a written statement, AIC VP of North America Sales Ash Tembe said that a podcast is more practical than webinars for agents, who are constantly on the go and may be without access to a computer or strong enough Internet connection.
