Avoya Travel Kicks Off 2024 Early Success Masterclass Series of Virtual Events

Four-Part Virtual Event Series Provides Educational Opportunities

for Newly Affiliated Avoya Network Members to Build Foundations for Success


Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – March 05, 2024 – Avoya Travel®, one of the travel industry’s most innovative brands, broke records for the first Early Success Masterclass in 2024 with over 200 Independent Agency attendees and an appetite for more. Held from February 23-24, 2024, “Foundations” was the first of four segments in Avoya’s 2024 Early Success Masterclass virtual events.


Specifically designed for agencies in the Avoya Travel Network™ that have been affiliated with Avoya for two years or less, these complimentary events consist of four installments that center on a different educational focus and progressively build off one another throughout the year to help Independent Agencies build a lasting, profitable business model. Avoya added hundreds of new Independent Agencies to its network in 2023 and the first segment of the series, Early Success Masterclass: Foundations, concentrated on establishing fundamental business practices as well as becoming more familiar with the Avoya platform and Avoya’s supplier partners.


The three remaining installments will continue to provide participating Independent Agencies with unique Avoya content on running and growing a travel business, opportunities to network with participating supplier partners and Avoya staff, and help in further immersing themselves in Avoya’s educational offerings to learn how to successfully sell a variety of vacation products.


The remaining 2024 Early Success Masterclass schedule is as follows:


Early Success Masterclass: Momentum | May 18-19, 2024

Participating suppliers and Avoya staff will share suggested best practices with Independent Agencies on ways to sustain and maximize booking momentum.


Early Success Masterclass: Velocity | August 23-24, 2024

Independent Agencies will gain more knowledge from Avoya staff and suppliers on how they can take their business to the next level and build velocity.


Early Success Masterclass: Wave Season | December 7-8, 2024

This segment will focus on valuable information from participating suppliers and Avoya staff about how Independent Agencies can best prepare for the upcoming Wave Season.


“The Early Success Masterclasses were specially created for newly affiliated Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network to assist them in obtaining the foundational knowledge and skills essential to establishing successful businesses,” said Steve Hirshan, Senior Vice President of Sales at Avoya Travel. “This powerful virtual series is also key in providing Avoya Network members with opportunities to network with and learn from Avoya staff and supplier partners who are deeply committed to their success. The first installment received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and we look forward to continuing to deliver best-in-class educational and networking opportunities as the series progresses throughout the year.”


The Early Success Masterclasses are an integral part of Avoya Travel’s dynamic calendar of in-person and virtual events slated for 2024. Every event was meticulously crafted with the goal of providing additional opportunities for Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network to enhance the success of their businesses by fostering connections throughout the travel industry and utilizing comprehensive educational resources.
