TPI's Velocity Rewards Program for Consultants Celebrates 5 Years of Growth
03/02/2011 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Celebrating its fifth consecutive year of record-breaking results for its exclusive Velocity consultant rewards program, Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada's largest network of independent travel consultants, announces expanded program rewards and the location of its much-anticipated Club Velocity trip for top-producing consultants and their guests.

Highlights of the recently-announced Velocity standings include:

- An increase to 332 participating Associates for the 2011 reward year, up 24% from 268 Associates for the 2010 reward year, and

- The number of Associates in the three highest tier levels of the program (Platinum, Diamond, and Elite) increasing by 14% over the 2010 reward year results, including a 41% increase in the Platinum (highest) level.

Due to the continued growth in the sales of consultants within the program, expanded Platinum level (consultants with more than $90 000 in commission per calendar year) rewards are being introduced, including but not limited to greater access to marketing dollars (up to a $2 000 value per year).

Built as both a motivational and incentive program, TPI Associates gain status in the various Velocity reward tiers through participation in TPI and TPI Preferred Partner functions (such as the TPI Annual Conference, preferred partner trainings, etc.), by receiving certifications and designations (such as those offered by CLIA, CITC, etc.), and by earning points through their yearly commission volumes.

In return for their acceptance into the various Velocity reward levels, Associates have access to such rewards as higher commission levels, complimentary registration in a variety of TPI programs (such as the TPI Annual Conference), and a complimentary land package for the Associate and a guest on the annual ultra-exclusive Club Velocity trip – in 2011 taking Associates and their guests to Bali, Indonesia. Previous reward trips took Associates and their guests to Jamaica, Barbados, and the Mediterranean.
