The World Religious Travel Association (WRTA) announced its “Bring an Agent/Planner, Both Go for Free” campaign for its upcoming Expo. Travel agents seeking new sources of revenues and clientele, while being mindful of their budgets, can bring a fellow travel agent professional or group planner, such as a religious leader or travel ministry organizer, to the November 13-16 World Religious Travel Expo in Montreal. Both will receive complimentary registration; regular admission for a travel agent or planner is $35.
“The promotional campaign is in response to hearing from many travel agents and planners that finances are their top concern,” said Kevin J. Wright, WRTA president. “If we can somehow help alleviate this challenge for them, they’ll then be able to successfully attend the upcoming World Religious Travel Expo.”
To take advantage of the offer by WRTA and the World Religious Travel Expo, the following criteria must be met:
* A sponsoring travel agent must contact WRTA staff and provide registration information for the travel agent(s) or planner(s) he or she wishes to bring to the Expo.
* The travel agents and planners who are accompanying the sponsoring travel agent will be contacted by WRTA to verify their contact information and affiliation with the sponsoring travel agent.
* Once the sponsoring and contact information of all parties is verified by WRTA staff, the registrations will be processed (and Expo registration fees waived).
* The “Bring an Agent/Planner, Both Go For Free” offer is valid only through the preregistration period, ending on Friday, November 5, 2010. The offer is not valid after November 5, 2010, or on-site in Montreal.
The WRTA Expo will be held in conjunction with the NTA Convention for the second consecutive year, providing a combined gathering of 2,000-plus travel professionals and tourism organizations.
For the third straight year, travel agents and providers can earn up to three continuing educational units through The Travel Institute (www.thetravelinstitute.com) by attending and participating in the WRTA Expo business and educational seminar program.
