Marriott International has joined the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies (ACTA) as its Gold level hotel partner.
“Marriott International is thrilled to partner with ACTA through 2017. Travel agents are extremely important to Marriott and we recognize the value that ACTA travel agent members bring to our growth and success in the Canadian travel market,” said Cynthia Perry, global director, Travel Industry Sales for Marriott International. “This year, we are committed to deepening our focus with ACTA and will continue to provide the best hotels, service, educational programs and agency support in the industry.”
ACTA president Wendy Paradis commented, “It is a pleasure to continue another year of partnership with Marriott International. One of the many ways Marriott has shown their support to the agency community is through their award winning agency training program, Hotel Excellence! and we look forward to endorsing and promoting the benefits of this educational element to our members across Canada.”
All ACTA members are encouraged to learn more about Marriott by becoming Hotel Excellence graduates and eligible for insider tips and rewards. Additionally, Marriott is offering $50 sponsorship for any travel agency who joins ACTA as a new member.
“The additional $50 offer to support our new member acquisition is a nice touch and we are excited to be connecting our members with contacts, information and resources to learn more about Marriott.” said Paradis.
