Thank you for joining us in our latest issue of Travel Professional NEWS and I hope that the summer has been treating you, your family and your clients well thus far! This exciting August issue will continue to empower, educate and inform you of the tools you need to take your Travel Agency to the next level.


Just a few weeks ago, I was joined by Ricko Tindage, Director of Sales / Incentive Travel Division of Chinatour for a fantastic discussion about Chinatour’s offerings and devotion to Travel Professionals. Not only has Chinatour been adding new packages but also new and exciting destinations to further assist your clients in crafting the perfect experience.


Robert Siamon, Incentive Connection Travel, shares a fantastic value proposition of the ICT Hosting program and how it could possibly change your success as a Travel Professional. Join our good friend Mary Pat Sullivan for an in-depth look at the 2019 CruiseWorld offerings and benefits of attendance. We greatly look forward to the CruiseWorld show, happening this November 13th – 15th in Fort Lauderdale.


Join Joanie Ogg on her recent experience at the 2019 Avoya Travel Network conference, on-board the newly amplified Navigator of the Seas. I was able to sit down with Drew Daly, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Dream Vacations for a fantastic discussion about some valuable tools and skills that are showing true success for many Travel Professionals in 2019..


In addition, dive into some great insight with Scott Koepf of Cruise Planners on the Ultimate Introduction and how that introduction can grow your clientele.
