Vision Travel, the leisure travel division of Direct Travel in Canada, was honoured recently to receive the Virtuoso award for top year-over-year revenue growth for 2018-2019.
Virtuoso is the leading global network of agencies specializing in luxury and experiential travel.
“As long-standing members of Virtuoso, we are thrilled to receive this acknowledgement of our success and the efforts of all of our travel advisors,” said Lynda Sinclair, senior vice-president of Vision Travel. “It’s a clear reflection of the passion and professionalism of our leisure travel advisors and the teams that support them. We are all so very proud.”
Direct Travel also had record-breaking attendance at the Virtuoso Vegas networking conference last year, bringing close to one quarter of their 800 luxury travel advisors from across the globe and face-to-face with Virtuoso’s top rated hotels, cruise lines and tour operators.
“I am thrilled to see that our team has once again succeeded in supporting our strategic partnerships within the Virtuoso network. It is truly a testament to our strength in coming together as a North American organization, and I am so thankful for the support from our supplier partners and the Virtuoso team over the years,” said Gerard Bellino, executive vice-president of Leisure at Direct Travel.
