For 2010, Sceptre Tours is increasing its network of sales managers. The appointment of Will Colgan as group/holf sales manager for the Midwestern, New York and Southern regions, and Cheryl Gatto as district sales manager Midwest, brings the sales team to a total of six district managers who will work to support and educate the travel agents in their respective regions in selling the Sceptre product.
The sales team expansion is just part of the million dollars Sceptre Tours is investing this year into their travel agents. Sceptre is revamping their website to enhance the travel agent section. Agents will also receive training and assistance with promotional programs and marketing materials. As an example, Sceptre recently hosted 30 agents on a fam trip for a new Ireland series. Sceptre's “Book Three Get Paid For Four” commission program is also one of the most generous in the industry—in 2009 the program paid out millions of dollars in commissions.
