Travel Professionals International (TPI) were out in force during the recent virtual Virtuoso Travel Week conference.
Caroline Hay, national director of sales for TPI, observed: “The theme for VTW this year was the Value of Connections which truly captured the essence of the situation our industry is in.”
Hay continued: “Participating in Virtuoso Travel Week is always so inspiring but this year, in particular, we have been able to participate in live digital sessions with industry-leading partners as well as expand our knowledge with relevant and inspiring Professional Development sessions that spur on the message of hope and optimism for the future of travel”
And she added: “In a time of so much uncertainty, it is so incredible to connect with partners, talk about new and interesting travel options and feed our passion for this incredible industry.”
During the week, TPI hosted a Virtual Cocktail party for its Advisors and TPI’s CEO, Zeina Gedeon said: “It was not the same as the in-person connection, however; it was great to hear the stories of successful connections, and professional development training.”
Gedeon continued: “With all signs pointing towards luxury travel being one of the first to rebound, our TPI Advisors are ready and armed with the information they need to assist their luxury clients in the future.”
While Virtuoso Travel Week has wrapped, for TPI, the learning doesn’t stop. In fact, TPI is continuing to engage its advisors with weekly professional development sessions ranging from training on business tools, marketing and social media strategies to supplier updates, as well as weekly national town hall sessions.
