Luxury host agency Travel Experts Inc. reports that sales are up 21 percent over last year. This news comes as more than 90 of its independent affiliates are en route to Las Vegas to attend Virtuoso Travel Week, the company said.
Virtuoso once again named Travel Experts as a finalist for its Top Virtuoso Air Production, and Top Virtuoso Network Production awards in recognition for their contributions to its network.
"We had a stellar performance in 2016, realizing a 32 percent revenue boost, and this year we are on target to continue this growth trajectory," said Susan Ferrell, founder and president of Travel Experts, in a written release.
Ferrell also said she attributes this steady growth to the strength and longevity of the relationships Travel Experts has built with its network of independent luxury advisors. "This year alone we are awarding an additional 16 Diamond Awards to those celebrating their 10-year anniversary as a Travel Experts affiliate," she said. One hundred and six have now received this award, 37 of who have been with the host agency for more than 15 years.
In addition, Travel Experts has welcomed 25 new independent luxury advisors to its network.
All new Travel Expert affiliates are invited to partake in its all-expenses paid two or three day training program hosted at its Raleigh, North Carolina, headquarters, which is led by Valarie Johnson, its newly appointed IC Ambassador.
