Nexion Travel Gears Up For Virtual Expo

Nexion Travel Group-Canada is holding a complimentary virtual expo on Jan. 13 and 14.

Nexion EXPO is a one-stop solution for travel advisors of all experience levels who are interested in learning about what a host agency is, and how Nexion Travel Group-Canada can help them achieve their goals as independent travel advisors. The event is open to all North American travel advisors and those considering a career as a travel advisor.

Heather Kindred, CTIE, senior director of business development and education at Nexion Travel Group, said that: “Throughout the pandemic, interest in becoming a travel advisor has remained high. Many current travel professionals are also seeking a new way forward.”

Kindred continued: “Nexion EXPO will help these individuals discover how to be successful in this business. And, as a virtual event, Nexion EXPO can be made available to a wide variety of people who might otherwise not be able to attend.”

Attendees at the Nexion EXPO can expect:

  • Live chats with Nexion Travel Group’s experts who can discuss the host agency’s award-winning programs and tools like Agent Profiler and the Escape omnimedia program.
  • A deep dive into Nexion Travel Group’s preferred suppliers, with information on the high commission rates the host agency can offer its members.
  • Top-tier educational opportunities virtually and live to help grow their business and bring in new clients.

Nexion EXPO participants can also get information and network with others in similar situations, such as new to the industry, experienced advisors, and those who are considering becoming a travel advisor.

Nexion Travel Group-Canada will also have a dedicated virtual room staffed with experts to help Canadian advisors.

Mike Foster, president of Nexion Travel Group-Canada, said that: “Travel is on its way to recovery. As people enter the industry or consider their next steps, they are seeing the value that a host agency can bring to the independent advisor. The COVID-19 pandemic has ironically provided the ideal situation to bring forth a large-scale virtual recruiting event like Nexion EXPO.”

And Foster observed that while: “It may not be safe to gather in person right now, it is a great time for current and potential travel professionals to spend some time at a virtual event and make an investment in their future with Nexion Travel Group-Canada. We look forward to meeting everyone.”

Nexion EXPO will be held Jan. 13 and Jan. 14, 2021, with live staffing from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. CST on Jan. 13 and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST on Jan. 14.
