TPI's Velocity Program Breaks Records
02/06/2009 - Travel Professionals International

Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of home-based travel agents, today released the record-breaking official 2007 standings for its exclusive agent rewards program, Velocity.

“Two thousand and six was a banner year for TPI’s Velocity program,” said Tim Morgan, TPI’s Manager of Corporate Development, “as our Associates showed more ownership of the program than ever before, with the statistics speaking for themselves – we are thrilled!”

- Over 9000 transactions (any variable input into the Velocity system to qualify for points) were entered by Associates – a ten-fold increase from the 900 transactions entered to qualify for the 2006 status levels.

- Major increases were felt in every Velocity tier, with 145 Associates reaching one level or another, up from 103 for 2006 – an overall increase of 42 Associates in the program.

- Two entirely new Velocity levels were added for 2007 to accommodate the heightened top-tier production levels of a number of TPI Associates. The new levels, Platinum and Diamond, showcase rewards such as higher commissions, a reward trip for top producers, and reward dollars to use toward personal travel.

A true testament to the growth experienced by TPI throughout 2006, the Velocity program will continue to be an innovative component of TPI’s Associate program throughout 2007, with further initiatives planned to further advance the program’s reach and scope.

Velocity, TPI’s exclusive reward program for its Associates, is made up of 6 status levels with rewards ranging from complimentary TPI Annual Conference registration to travel reward dollars and the ultra-exclusive yearly Club Velocity trip for top producing Associates and a guest. Velocity points are collected throughout the calendar year by Associates based on their sales, the events they attend, and any designation or certification they receive – all of which are entered into the online Velocity system through the technologically advanced MyTPI portal.
