TPI Takes 93 to Mediterranean to Celebrate
09/14/2010 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International TPI Associates aboard the Celebrity Equinox as part of the Club Velocity trip for top producing agents.(TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, celebrated the success of its top producing associates by taking 93 agents, agents' guests, preferred partners, and TPI staff on a Celebrity Equinox Mediterranean cruise, 2-9 September 2010, as part of the company’s annual Club Velocity trip.

Cruising for seven days through Barcelona, Nice, Corsica, Naples/Capri, Dubrovnik, and Rome, guests enjoyed leisure, networking, and education components while celebrating their success alongside a handful of TPI staff and preferred partner representatives, as well as Morris Chia, TPI Chairman and CEO, and Phil Sproul, TPI President.

“The cruise was amazing,” exclaimed Amanda Carter, a Platinum-level TPI agent from Waverley, Nova Scotia. “I work hard to grow my business and the fact that TPI thanks me with a trip where I get to relax and spend time with other TPI agents, partners, and staff while learning about new destinations is a huge motivator.”

Exclusive to TPI agents, the Velocity rewards program is designed to encourage agents to gain industry designations, participate in TPI and preferred partner functions, and build their businesses through increased sales – all the while rewarding them with incentives such as the annual Club Velocity trip for TPI’s top producing agents and their guests. With 15% more participants in 2010 than the previous year’s trip, the increase reflects the overall growth trend of TPI Associates’ participation in the Velocity program.

TPI’s 2010 Club Velocity trip was sponsored by, TPI preferred partners, Celebrity Cruises/Royal Caribbean International/Azamara Club Cruises and Air Canada Vacations. Secondary sponsors included, TPI preferred partners, Travelbound and Gateways International.
