Recently Nexion hosted its first-ever Idea NEXchange Summit just prior to this year's cruise3sixty event. 

The event brought together over 40 top travel agents with leaders from Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, MSC Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean International. Business growth strategies and networking were included, as well as a small group collaboration, which required Nexion travel agents to take a real-world scenario or issue, provided by the supplier partner in their group, and discuss it from six points of views to fully address the topic from all angles.

“Creating a forum for new and longtime travel agents to work together, problem solve and innovate was eye-opening and incredibly productive for everyone involved,” said Nexion President Jackie Friedman. “Our supplier partners also gained new insights by spending time with seasoned agents and learning from their experiences. Because of the tremendous success of this summit, this format is something we plan to replicate for future events.”
