Wildcard Announced in G’s ‘Change Makers Challenge’

G Adventures has announced that the agent who changes the most lives by booking individual travellers on G Adventures’ tours in February will earn a “wildcard” space to the “Change Makers Summit,” a global gathering of more than 100 agents being held at an undisclosed location from June 2-9.

In total five wildcards will be given away globally, with just one agent from Canada earning a wildcard space for most lives changed in the month of February.

Three agents from Canada will be selected based on a “social submission” entry, either written or video, that demonstrates how they’ve given back to others and/or their community. Entries are due by Feb. 28 and can be submitted via Sherpa, G Adventures’ booking tool.

In total 15 agents from Canada will attend the Change Makers Summit. Ten will earn their place by changing the most lives during the campaign period (Oct. 1, 2018 – March 31, 2019) and one more wildcard space will be up for grabs during the month of March.

The “Change Makers Challenge” is G Adventures’ largest agent incentive to-date and the first of its kind to not focus purely on sales. It challenges agents to focus on changing people’s lives through travel, and invites them to rediscover their purpose – why they love selling travel. Agents who earn their place will be given the opportunity to make meaningful connections with, and learn from, their counterparts across the globe.

“Just as we do on all our trips, we want to bring agents from different parts of the world together, to connect with each other, with our team of Global Purpose Specialists, and with local people in the destination we are travelling to. Now, more than ever, our world deserves more change-making agents, and more global connection,” says David Green, vice-president, G Adventures.

“G Adventures’ purpose as an organization is to change lives through travel, and this incentive is designed to remind our valued partners that every G Adventures trip they sell has a positive impact on people, not just on profit.”

The Change Makers Summit will comprise of a week-long trip where agents will see first-hand the impact responsible travel has on local communities, and includes destination highlights to help build their product knowledge. At the end of the trip, they will have a full-day, immersive G Adventures learning experience, and will be treated to a party night to remember.
