Ensemble Announces Contest for Members

Ensemble Travel Group reports members attending the organization’s 2012 international conference at the Red Rock Resort Las Vegas, Oct. 17-21 have three opportunities to win more than $7,000 in contest prizes.

The “Las Vegas Agent Rewards program” contest, sponsored by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, will award $5,000 each to a U.S. and Canadian Ensemble member in a drawing based on their Las Vegas hotel package bookings made from April 1 through September 30, 2012.

Each auto-tracked booking made through Leisure Pops will count as two entries. Bookings made via any other method (direct, wholesale, etc.) should be registered at ww.trackmylasvegasbookings.com/ensemble and will count as one entry.

The winning agents will be selected via a random drawing based on total bookings made. The more bookings, the more chances to win, Ensemble notes. The two winners will be announced during the Ensemble Travel Group International Conference opening general session on Oct. 17.

In addition to the two lucrative $5,000 prizes, Ensemble members’ bookings in the Las Vegas Agent Rewards program are also entered into a monthly drawing for an iPad 2. Winners to-date: Chris Pattie of The Lodging Company; Chris Rollinson of Escapes.ca/Skyland Travel; Tammy Langlow of Thomson Travel and Cruise  and Sandra D’Souza of Forbes Travel International.

Ensemble members attending the conference are also eligible to win a $2,000 social media makeover sponsored by Cory Andrichuk, founder of brandUcoaching, a highly-specialized business coaching practice.

Andrichuk will meet with the contest winner 12 times over a six-month period to help the agency regroup, refresh, and revitalize its online marketing presence, Ensemble says. Entries (via written statement or video format) must describe the agency’s current social media activities, why it deserves to win, and the desired results of a makeover.

All entries are due by September 15, 2012 and the winner will be announced during the opening general session on Oct. 17. For more information or to register for the social media makeover, visit the conference website on Ensemble Agent.

Also in Las Vegas, Andrichuk will lead a two-day Frontline Agent Professional Development Track, which is focused on branding, entrepreneurial practices, social media strategy and consultative selling skills.
