Since 2016, Baxter Media has been highlighting travel advisors from coast to coast in our annual Travel Agent Appreciation combined special issue of Travel Courier and Canadian Travel Press.
Last year, we launched the inaugural Travel Agent and Beyond Award recognizing one of the finalists during an amazing virtual event.
This year we’re going even bigger with a three-day affair loaded with trade shows, informative sessions to inspire agents and so much more. Not only will we be announcing the recipient of the second annual Travel Agent and Beyond Award during the event culminating on May 19, there will also be some fabulous prizes up for grabs as we toast to travel advisors.
Here’s an overview of what’s in store:
