TPI Takes 81 to Barbados to Celebrate
07/17/2009 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, flew its agents to Barbados, 6-10 July 2009, as part of its annual Club Velocity trip to celebrate the success of its top producing agents as well as the company’s 15th anniversary.

Eighty-one TPI Associates and their guests, TPI head office team members, and TPI preferred partners took part in five days of leisure, networking, and education while celebrating their success as part of TPI’s 15th anniversary year festivities. Other highlights included catamaran sailing and tours of historic Bridgetown, Barbados. At double the size of the 2008 event, the increase in participant numbers reflects the overall growth of TPI Associates’ participation in the Velocity program – mainly in the form of increased sales volumes and achievements in the upper tiers of the program.

Exclusive to TPI agents, the Velocity program is designed to encourage agents to gain industry designations, participate in TPI and preferred partner functions, and build their business 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.

TPI’s 2009 Club Velocity trip was sponsored by, TPI preferred partners, Barbados Tourism Authority, Air Canada, Thomas Cook Group, and Almond Beach Resorts.
