Contiki to Host ‘Budapest and Croatia Sailing’ Fam

Contiki is kicking off 2019 by announcing that it will be hosting an open age trade fam for agents this year.

Showcasing the best Contiki offers with both land and sea experiences in Budapest and Croatia, the youth adventure travel company will be hosting agents who have completed the mandatory short snackable size training modules on its Contiki U E-learning Training courses.

Beginning in Budapest on May 12 and ending in Split on May 18, Contiki’s first fam announcement for 2019 will feature a week of “world class cities, stunning islands, amazing eats such as goulash and grappa, and swimming in the stunning Dalmatian Coast.” Interested agents of all ages and regions are encouraged to apply today as space is limited.

To be eligible, agents must have completed the mandatory Contiki U E-learning training courses, which include “Introduction to Contiki,” “Europe with Contiki,” “Identifying the Contiki Customer” and “How to sell to millennials.” To apply, agents will be required to tell Contiki in 100 words or more how they plan to increase their Contiki sales after completing the fam, and send their application form to [email protected] no later than March 16.

“We couldn’t be more excited to host agents around the world à la Contiki this year,” says Sheralyn Berry, president of Contiki Canada. “This particular fam trip will showcase the best of Budapest and our Croatia sailing experiences. But more importantly, it will also show agents what Contiki is all about – which is people, experiences and of course, fun.”
