CWT Launches Training Academy Series


Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) recently launched a series of CWT Training Academies for travel industry personnel. The theme is “Your World of Possibilities” and emphasizes the growing opportunity for travel in the Canadian marketplace. Tourism spending in Canada is approaching $90 billion, with a far-reaching impact on the economy, according to the Conference Board of Canada. “It’s an exciting time for the travel industry,” said Louise Gardiner, CWT senior director, Associate Program, Canada. “We realize we’re now living in the experience economy. There is a shift from a focus on material goods to spending valuable time and money on creating memorable moments and experiences. The goal of our conference was to bring our partners together to share ideas on how we can boost tourism and create lasting travel memories for our clients.” Pictured (l-r) are Gardiner, Mark Stubbert, senior director, Operations North American Leisure, and Úna O’Leary, senior director, Supplier Management and Marketing North American Leisure.
