Sandals Invites Agents To Get Their ‘Game On’


Sandals Resorts will travel to more than 50 cities across Canada to conduct a series of informative and inspirational travel agent workshops, April through September.

Agents will learn what makes Sandals Resorts the “Game Changer” in the all-inclusive industry and how they can build their business, access marketing tools, earn more commissions and be on the winning team.

The fast-paced and succinct workshops will fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirement for agents already holding CSS status. The morning sessions take place 7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and include continental breakfast (with the exception of two afternoon sessions in Quebec City and Laval which feature lunch). In Quebec, workshops are offered in both English and French.

In addition, the workshops are ACTA approved. Each agent or manager who completes a workshop receives 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation.

Space is limited and agents are encouraged to register early. A non-refundable fee of $35 is required at the time of registration. All participants will receive a workbook, a supply of the newest collateral materials, a certificate upon completion of the workshop and an exclusive booking incentive.
