BOCA RATON, Fla. (Dec. 31, 2021) – OASIS Travel Network is proud to share a number of new and exciting events and member offerings for 2022. In addition to the return of some well-attended and highly anticipated annual events, the award-winning boutique host agency is also introducing a new monthly lineup of niche & specialty travel expert panels, beginning with a panel focusing on Luxury Travel on January 25.
The panels will explore how members could differentiate themselves from the competition by focusing on a specialty/niche market. Every panel will highlight four preferred cruise and land suppliers who cater to several in-demand and fast-growing markets.
“Our OTN partners will share helpful comparisons to assist our members in matching their clients to the right product for their unique needs, in addition to sales and marketing tips and best practices,” said Lee Smolinski, Chairman and CEO of OASIS Travel Network. “Whether someone is experienced or new to the industry, these sessions are designed to provide members with takeaways that will increase their product knowledge and sales success.”
Additional panel topics for the year include: Romance (February 22); Group (March 22); River Cruise (April 26); Family (May 24); LGBTQ (June 28); Guided (July 26); Holiday Travel (August 30); Expedition (September); Wellness (October 25); Solo (November 15); and Exotic Destinations (December 13).
Another first for OTN is the announcement of the first-ever OASIS Travel Network 2022 Conference at Sea, taking place on the spectacular Norwegian PR1MA from October 10 – 15, 2022. During this thrilling event, members will have the opportunity to network and socialize with suppliers and peers, take part in educational presentations and panel discussions, dine with supplier partners and more.
Throughout the year, members will also have opportunities to join OTN for the 2021 Top Producers Trip (Mar. 12-22, Seabourn Odyssey, Caribbean Experience); the Spring Member Appreciation Trip (May 1-8 | Cunard, Queen Mary 2, Transatlantic crossing from New York to Southampton, England): and the Winter Member Appreciation Trip(Nov. 26 – Dec. 2, Uniworld River Cruises, S.S.
