Lately we have been talking a lot about networking and how important it is to get out there and promote your travel agency. As we have touched on in previous posts, networking can lead to lots of great things: referrals, new supplier contacts, some great industry friends, and much more. How do you prepare yourself to attend a networking event, and more importantly, what should you bring with you?
We sat down with our Vice President of Membership Services, Margie Jordan, who is also the President and CEO of Jordan Executive Travel Services, to discuss how to build a top-tier supplier network in a way that will not only help you grow your travel business through steady commissions, but incredible customer service.
Travel trends are constantly changing and evolving. One that seems to be on the rise currently is that travelers are seeking more exotic and exciting vacation destinations. This is an intriguing challenge for travel professionals, and the best way to appeal to a new, more diverse clientele is to market yourself in every way possible as a Destination Expert.
