Travel Leaders Network has announced plans for its first-ever Sales Expos, in partnership with authors and consultants Kizer & Bender. The complimentary afternoon events will take place in Detroit (March 6), Dallas (March 8), Anaheim (March 13), and Philadelphia (March 15).
“These free events are packed with valuable information, including sales education and training sessions that are specifically designed to give agents a competitive edge,” said Roger E. Block, president of Travel Leaders Network. “They will help travel advisors gain actionable insights on proven selling techniques to boost the bottom line and learn strategies to leverage preferred supplier relationships as well as provide an excellent opportunity to network with both supplier partners and fellow peers.”
The four Sales Expos will take place at the following locations: Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport Hotel, DFW Airport Marriott South, Anaheim Marriott Suites and the Philadelphia Airport Marriott.
The expos will have a sales education session with Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender, speakers and meeting planners who were named “Two of Retailing’s Most Influential People.” At the events, Kizer & Bender will talk about reputation management, how to connect with customers who have unlimited choices, how to get in front of customers and stay there, tips on relationship-building, and how to use business-focused personal social media channels to build clientele and keep customers close. Other topics they cover include generational diversity, consumer trends, marketing and promotion, and the retail business.
A supplier partner sponsor panel discussion will also be held during each event, along with supplier partner roundtable discussions.
