HOSTED AGENT PROGRAM LAUNCHED FOR TRAVEL WEEKLY’S CRUISEWORLD

Travel Weekly debuts the Hosted Agent Program for CruiseWorld providing hundreds of travel professionals with hotel, registration and limited airfare to attend the event. CruiseWorld is a LIVE and interactive extension of the industry’s most respected source of news and information providing cutting edge training, elite networking and a platform to gather tools and strategies to support and grow a travel agent’s business and increase the bottom line.

“The Hosted Agent Program at CruiseWorld is a pioneering effort and an industry first. Travel Weekly has deep roots within the travel industry and is committed to ensuring the retail distribution channel thrives for years to come.  Therefore, a significant investment is being made into a new Hosted Agent Program at CruiseWorld,” said Alicia Evanko-Lewis, Vice President of Events for Northstar Travel Media. “No other travel industry event will provide content rich programming and such a significant widescale opportunity to overcome the financial obstacles that often hold agents back from attending professional conferences.”

Hosted Agents at Travel Weekly’s CruiseWorld will receive:

  • Complimentary conference registration, including meal functions and networking events
  • Complimentary hotel accommodations for two nights
  • A personalized schedule of supplier one-on-one meetings designed to support your professional goals
  • Bonus:  A limited number of agents who apply early will also receive round trip coach airfare!

Agents hosted at CruiseWorld will be a varied mix of established, developing and promising agents with a vast range of experience, sales and specialty focus. Attending will be agents who work from home offices and agents who work from retail storefront; corporate and leisure agents; new agents and seasoned veterans. While agents will be selected to participate from a wide demographic, the commonality of all Hosted Agents will be the dedication to professionalism, the desire to learn and grow from the experience, and a commitment to keeping the travel industry, and the retail agent distribution channel, strong.
