Avoya Travel®, one of the travel industry’s most innovative brands, recently concluded the 2023 Avoya Travel Independent Agency Recognition Reward Trip celebrating the success of top-producing Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network™. The event was hosted in partnership with Sandals and Beaches Resorts from January 30 – February 3, 2023 at Beaches Turks & Caicos. In addition to honoring the Independent Agencies that achieved at least $1 Million in sales in 2022, the agenda featured dedicated time for attendees to explore the resort, experience the various restaurants on-site through dine arounds, learn more about Avoya’s preferred suppliers including Sandals and Beaches Resorts, and network with fellow Independent Agencies and preferred suppliers.
“We were thrilled to host the ‘2023 Avoya Travel Top Producer’ Recognition Trip to celebrate the incredible success of Avoya’s top-producing Independent Agencies at the stunning Beaches Turks & Caicos,” said Garth Laird, Vice President of Trade Sales at Unique Vacations Inc., an affiliate of Unique Travel Corp., the worldwide representative of Sandals & Beaches Resorts. “The opportunity to connect with Avoya’s advisors and showcase all that the Sandals and Beaches brands have to offer our mutual customers was invaluable. The Independent Agencies in attendance were highly motivated and optimistic for the future of leisure travel, a testament to the strength of the partnership between Avoya Travel and Sandals and Beaches.”
Independent Agencies that earned an invitation to the trip found the experience to be extremely beneficial for their businesses. “I was ecstatic to be part of the Avoya Travel Independent Agency Recognition Reward Trip at the spectacular Beaches Turks & Caicos,” said Jason DuttonSmith, Owner of Map The World Travel LLC, a member of the Avoya Network. “Meeting with suppliers, Avoya staff, and other Independent Agencies was so valuable for myself and my agency. Nothing compares to meeting face-to-face and being able to collaborate and share ideas with fellow Independent Agencies and suppliers – especially against the backdrop of one the world’s most beautiful beaches!”
