Results! Travel reports plans to hold a series of special educational seminars for prospective agency owners at the end of April and early May. These seminars will be invitation-only and will offer insights into how adoption of Results! Travel products and programs can more easily lead to travel agency growth for member agencies. This includes either in measured increments or aggressively if all are utilized effectively. The seminars are planned for Chicago, Denver, Houston and Salt Lake City.
“Whether mostly corporate, mostly leisure or a combination of the two, we recognize most travel agencies have seen economic improvement since the ‘Great Recession.’ However, with all too many agencies finding it necessary to put a considerable amount of additional work into generating the same revenue as just a few years ago, we are offering smart solutions and opportunities,” stated Results! Travel Vice President and General Manager John Risner.
“We are providing information on our Results! Travel methodologies to help agencies make more money on their existing book of sales today and offer them easy ways to grow their business that do not involve adding lots of staff or additional work. We want to help more agency owners make more money and have more fun doing what they love to do," Risner said.
The size of each seminar will be limited, and each session is by invitation-only. Each group of agency owners will allow for each seminar to focus on the specific needs of the agencies in attendance. The upcoming, exclusive Results! Travel sales seminars will take place in the following cities: Denver, CO, April 23; Salt Lake City, UT, April 24; Chicago, IL, May 1; and Houston, TX, May 2.
“We care about the travel agency community. We want agencies to operate more efficiently, make more money and have more fun. Results! Travel, as part of Travel Leaders Group, subscribes to the same philosophy as Travel Leaders Group’s CEO Barry Liben," Results! said.
"The agency community is our heart and soul," added Risner. “Some agencies are very happy with where they are in terms of size and sales. However, those agencies that are looking to grow, and also find a way to shoulder a little less of the day-to-day minutia of running a business – so they can focus on doing what they love in actively selling travel – are the agencies we want to speak to. We’ve researched and vetted those we think will benefit most from what we have to offer.”
