TPI on Exclusive Fam to Barbados
12/05/2008 - Travel Professionals International

WINNIPEG, CANADA – Associates from Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of home-based travel agents, participated in a TPI-exclusive familiarization trip to the island nation of Barbados, presented by WestJet Vacations and the Barbados Tourism Authority, 26 November to 2 December 2008.

Eighteen TPI agents took part in the familiarization trip, visiting resorts offered by WestJet Vacations, as well as local tourist attractions. Highlights included celebrating Barbados Independence Day, swimming with turtles, and a jungle safari.

“A large part of an agent’s value comes from their understanding of destinations,” said Emilyn Salvador, TPI’s National Training Manager, who led the excursion, “and nothing says knowledge like first hand experience.”

In addition to increasing their knowledge-base for effectively selling Barbados, TPI Associates who participated in the familiarization trip also receive continuing education points toward their standing in TPI’s exclusive Velocity agent reward program.
