One of the many benefits of working as an independant travel agent is the number of wonderfully informative travel events you can attend to broaden your knowledge of the product you love to sell. On Tuesday, on a grey, windy evening in Wetherby, we attended a Destination Representation event all about the colourful Caribbean. It was a great chance for David, Emma and Diane to learn more about the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, as well as meet great contacts from the hotels we sell to our customers.
There were many fantastic hoteliers and tour operators at the event, each one of them passionate about the product they sell or the island that they promote; and with good reason, as the Caribbean is truly a stunning collection of islands with so much more than just beautiful beaches to offer. From scuba diving with giant turtles, to swimming with dolphins, to exploring the history and culture, each island has it’s own story to tell and amazing things to offer. With luxury hotel groups such as AMResorts, Hard Rock Hotels, Barcelo, Palladium and Temptation and tourist board reps from Turks and Caicos, Aruba, Grenada and Dominican Republic the evening was packed with fantastic product to learn about.
This was more than just an educational event; it was also entertaining! Emma took part in their End of Show Show and was lucky to win a goody bag from Pure Grenada, full of their delicious spiced chocolate and fantastic information about the island itself. We got to meet some amazing reps from the tour operators and hotel chains that we use, which in turn makes our clients holidays just that bit extra special as we not only know the destination we sell, but also have a contact that will do their utmost to make your stay unforgettable.
One of the many reasons you should book with us at Conexo Travel is because of our passion for travel, for learning all this is to know about the destinations we sell and for going that extra mile to create and maintain great relationships with our trade partners, to enable our clients to have the best travel experience possible.
