The Luxury Travel Network, part of Travel Leaders Leisure Group, reports that the network’s third annual conference will be held onboard a five-night fall cruise on the Celebrity Millennium. The conference, themed “Oceans of Opportunity,” will take place on Oct. 22 and is the network’s premier educational and networking event of the year for its home-based luxury agents.
“Our annual conference arms our agents with the tools and information they need to stay on top of the luxury travel industry as well as provides training on everything from mastering our internal technology to learning the latest tools and techniques to sell travel through social media,” explained Jody Ryland, vice president of the Luxury Travel Network. “Every luxury agent that attends the conference is making a valuable investment in their business and they often return to work feeling rejuvenated and motivated to further increase their sales knowing our team is by their side every step of the way.”
During the conference, luxury travel consultants will have the opportunity to learn, network and socialize with other luxury travel agents, industry experts, preferred vendors and the Luxury Travel Network management and support team.
Seminars and workshops offered at the conference include the following:
• Getting the most out of the network’s software tools—TravelConnect and Sabre Cruises
• Turning shared interests into group cruises through social media
• Building your business through Virtuoso’s marketing tools
• Hearing the latest product updates and pertinent sales information from more than 20 luxury cruise and tour suppliers in attendance
Tom Baumann, president of Travel Leaders Leisure Group, reiterated the importance for their Luxury Travel Network specialists to attend the annual conference.
“It’s crucial for our agents to attend this conference each year to gain as much knowledge as they possibly can from everyone around them and then put that knowledge to work for themselves and their businesses,” Baumann said. “Travel agents need to be ‘all in’ to invest in their future and success.”
