Canadian members honoured at TL Network’s EDGE conference

Travel Leaders Network has honoured several of its top Canadian members with Power of Partnership (POP) Awards, given at EDGE 2024, held at theGaylord National Harbour Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.

Eight agencies were given POP Awards as a recognition of their superior performance in the last year.

“It is a pleasure to recognize these members with POP Awards,” said Roger E. Block, president, Travel Leaders Network. “POP Awards aren’t easy to get—they take determination, intelligence, hard work, and of course, partnership. These winners are all deeply deserving of their awards, and I congratulate them.”

Award recipients

President’s Awards were given to agencies in the small, midsize and large categories. These agencies are the top of the top in their particular sizes. President’s Awards were given to:

  • Cruise Holidays/Be Our Guest (Small Agency President’s Award)
  • Vacations Yorkton (Midsize Agency President’s Award)
  • KVI Travel (Large Agency President’s Award)

Kyle Oram of KVI Travel was also given the Most Engaging Member Award.

Travel Leaders Network recognized two of its top Canadian producers with the Chairman’s Elite and Chairman’s Pinnacle Awards. The Chairman’s Elite Award was given to Northstar Travel for the largest percentage in annual growth. The Chairman’s Pinnacle Award was given to the Canadian agency with the largest sales, The Travel Agent Next Door.

Centre Holidays took home the Host Agency of the Year Award in recognition of their sales, agent growth and overall participation in TLN programs. VIP Travel Group was honoured as the New Member of the Year for their promise as a successful new member and embrace of TLN’s offerings.

Member of the Year

Every year, Travel Leaders Network gives its top individual Canadian member the Member of the Year Award. The award winner is chosen in part because of their superior sales. However, they are also evaluated on their participation in TLN programs, attendance at meetings; and overall engagement and support of the partnership between their agency and Travel Leaders Network.

The 2024 Member of the Year is Travel Best Bets.

“Our Canadian membership is thriving, and these awards demonstrate that,” said Christine James, vice-president, Travel Leaders Network Canada. “We offer agencies of any size and niche the opportunity to soar as members, and all the POP Award winners may be very different, but they have one thing in common: excellence. I look forward to watching their future success and
partnership with our Network.”
