TPI is Tops with Viking River Cruises
05/29/2012 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada's largest network of independent travel consultants, has been announced as part of the exclusive Platinum Circle of Viking River Cruises.

As top producing agencies for Viking River Cruises, Platinum Circle members were rewarded with a private charter cruise in Europe on the new Viking Prestige at the end of March, 2012. Proudly representing all of TPI's independent travel consultants, Morris Chia, President & CEO, took part in the celebration along with other representatives of top producing agencies from around the world.

Michele Saegesser, Vice President of Sales for Viking River Cruises, says that the Platinum Circle is Viking's very best. "We are a company dedicated to the service and the support of our travel partners," said Saegesser.

The cruise embarked from Amsterdam and took guests through the surrounding waterways. One hundred twenty industry partners enjoyed the first class service of Viking's inaugural sailings of four new ships as guests explored cities such as Antwerp, Brugge, Ghent and Rotterdam, among others – all the while networking and celebrating the success of their partnership with Viking.

"It was an honour to be asked to attend this prestigious event on behalf of TPI," said Chia. "River cruising is an important product for TPI and one that our consultants are focusing on more and more every day due to great product and service offerings which result in high customer satisfaction rates."
