Goway Travel has big plans for its 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2020 and it is making sure that travel agents will be part of the festivities.
Over 50 years, Goway has evolved with its globetrotters and travel industry partners to become a leader in global travel. From one office in Toronto, Goway has grown to operate offices in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Sydney, and Manila.
Bruce Hodge, Goway’s president, owner, and founder, observed: “Not many travel companies get to turn 50 and see so many changes in our industry. What hasn’t changed is Goway’s commitment to integrity, innovation, and respect. I’m proud of our staff, who through embracing those values have helped make this rare milestone a reality, and grateful for the support of agents and industry partners who’ve shared the journey with us.”
In 2020, Goway’s journey will continue in the form of 80 new Destination Specialists, expanded investment in new technologies across its worldwide offices, and a wide range of marketing initiatives, beginning with the company’s 50th Anniversary Golden Sale.
The Golden Sale showcases 50 of Goway’s best offers to its wide range of destinations, but it’s only the first of many activities planned for the company’s 50th Anniversary.
Beginning in April, Goway will be giving away 50 trips to lucky globetrotters in what’s thought to be the biggest giveaway in North American travel industry history.
In addition, Goway will send 50 lucky agent partners to Sydney, Australia for a FAM, and to celebrate at Goway’s Sydney office birthday bash in October, 2020. This is one of several planned anniversary parties, joining events in Vancouver, Toronto and Manila.
John Feenaghty, Goway’s chief operations officer, noted that: “2020 is a landmark year for Goway, and we want to share that celebration with those who’ve helped secure our reputation as one of the most trusted names in travel.”
