10/22/2009 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, announces the winners of its promotional partnership with FRAM®, a leading premium oil and air filter manufacturer, that took place at 470 Canadian Tire dealers and 84 PartSource franchises across Canada between 30 May 2009 and 15 August 2009.

The lucky winners include Ted and Doris Albo of Winnipeg, Manitoba; Colin and Josephine Leung of Toronto, Ontario; and Jennifer and Randy MacNeill of Grove Hill, New Brunswick. Each couple has won a trip for two to see the National Hot Rod Association National Finals commencing October 29, 2009, in Las Vegas, Nevada, including VIP Hospitality Tickets and spending money – a total prize valued at $4,500.00 per couple.

From 30 May 2009 to 15 August 2009, consumers who purchased a FRAM® oil or air filter from a participating Canadian Tire, Canadian Tire AutoService or PartSource location were entered online for a chance to win 1 of 3 grand prize trips for 2 to Las Vegas, NV. The grand prize includes flight and hotel accommodations courtesy of TPI and their travel partners, as well as $500 CDN in spending money and VIP tickets to a National Hot Rod Association event.

Over 700 TPI personal travel consultants benefited from exposure to 3.5 million households receiving details of the TPI and FRAM® partnership via Canadian Tire flyers and point of purchase displays in 554 stores across Canada, as well as the dedicated contest site, monthly e-mail blasts, and promotions on Facebook.

“TPI is proud to provide the grand prize trips to Canada's NHRA enthusiasts and Canadian Tire and PartSource customers. The FRAM-OLOGY contest is also a great fit with our 15th anniversary consumer awareness campaign to let Canadians know that TPI personal travel consultants are dedicated to helping plan unforgettable vacation experiences,” said Melanie Carter, TPI National Marketing Manager, adding, "Many of our personal travel consultants are certified Las Vegas travel experts so that everyone booking a Vegas getaway with a TPI consultant is a winner."

TPI worked with Preferred Partners WestJet and WestJet Vacations, and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Harrahs, Bally’s, and the Flamingo to provide the grand prizes.
