Record Attendance at TPI Fall Regionals
11/12/2007 - Travel Professionals International

Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of home-based travel agents, held its 2007 TPI Fall Regionals throughout the month of October in major centres across Canada with 245 TPI Associates in attendance – a generous 60% increase over 2006 numbers.

“The regional meetings were a great success,” said Emilyn Salvador, TPI’s National Training Manager and coordinator of the 2007 TPI Fall Regionals. “As TPI grows, we are seeing very encouraging increases in our training in both the quality and level of participation.”

Feedback forms submitted by over half of the participants lent support to Salvador’s statement, with Associates rating on average the overall events as between “Good” and “Very Good”.

Associates enjoyed training by both Salvador and Melanie Carter (TPI National Marketing Manager) who hosted the events alongside TPI’s regional Associate Development Managers. Training was also provided by, national TPI Preferred Partners, Sunquest Vacations, Sandals & Beaches, Insight Vacations, Jade Tours, and RBC Insurance, and, regional TPI Preferred Partner, FunSun Vacation, as well as Canada’s Consular Affairs.

As part of the yearly program, Associates in the top tiers of TPI’s exclusive Velocity agent rewards program were treated to a VIP breakfast with members of TPI’s Management Team, including Morris Chia (TPI President & CEO). As has become tradition, a special extended two-day event occurred in Halifax, Nova Scotia, which coincided with a ship inspection of Princess’ Crown Princess.
