WINNIPEG, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of independent travel consultants, today announces program details and supplier sponsors for the 2009 TPI Annual Conference, entitled “Connect for Success”, taking place 10-17 May 2009 aboard the Carnival Splendor.

Sailing the Mexican Riviera, the conference will take TPI Associates from across Canada to ports of call in Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, and Mazatlan, before returning to Los Angeles.

The seven day event features an agenda filled with educational and networking events, including industry-leading speakers, supplier presentations, and familiarization trips – all interspersed with the maximum in designated time to allow relationship building between TPI Associates, their agent peers, TPI Head Office team members, and industry partners.

Educational opportunities will be plentiful at the annual event, including those provided by keynote speaker Nolan W. Burris, President and Chief Vision-eer, Visionistics Enterprises, Inc, who will be addressing the attendees on travel trends and how agents can harness specific technological tools to harness said trends. Agents will also have the opportunity to further their industry designations through CLIA, CITC, and Sandals CSS certifications taking place onboard the cruise.

“The TPI Annual Conference is a cornerstone of our yearly calendar,” said Melanie Carter, TPI’s National Marketing Manager and chair of the conference organizing committee, “and 2009 will continue the long-held tradition of education and relationship-building that these events are known for.”
