CCRA Travel Commerce Network and Ensemble Travel Group have announced a strategic alliance that will enable TRUE members to access and take full advantage of Ensemble’s marketing program and other benefits.
“Together, we have been working on this new collaboration for many months, and while we wanted to make this announcement at our PowerSolutions National conference next month, we opted to share the news early to give even more travel advisors the opportunity to start enjoying these benefits right away,” said CCRA’s President and CEO Richard J. Marxen in a written release.
“We are very pleased to be working with CCRA, a company that shares our vision for helping travel advisors increase business,” said David R. Harris, CEO of Ensemble Travel Group. "This synergy will add immediate benefit to both Ensemble and CCRA from existing relationships with suppliers across the globe, as well as marketing, technology, and luxury products.”
PowerSolutions National Conference
As part of this new alliance, Ensemble Travel Group will have an enhanced presence at CCRA’s PowerSolutions National Conference, scheduled for February 7-9 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor, MD. The event will include innovative educational sessions and workshops tailor-created to meet the needs of today’s travel advisor and agency owner.
