June 2019

As school comes to an end, for the first time as a parent, I can feel the need for a summer vacation. As our beautiful 5 year old, Peyton Ogg, completes her Preschool learnings and prepares for her next step to Kindergarten, I am motivated to embark on an adventure to celebrate her successes. It’s that time of year for many of your clients and a fantastic opportunity to reach out, get them booked and give them the adventure, that only a true Travel Professional can provide.


In our June issue of TravelProfessional NEWS, we are joined by Dugan’s Travels, a family based Host Agency that shares their outlook on the Travel Professional into the future, as well as the unique and comfortable relationship they provide their Independent Agents.


Join Joanie Ogg for a chat with Dave Takehara, newly appointed CEO of Tourism Cares, about his history in the industry and what Tourism Cares has in the works this year and well into the future. As visitors of the world, it’s not only our responsibility to help others create experiences but to be mindful while doing so, that is where Tourism Cares comes into the picture.


Knowing how to use the technology available is a good thing but knowing how to make the technology out there work for you is better. Join Andy Ogg for some insights into some online skills that you may want to consider. Additionally, join Joanie Ogg for a comprehensive list of the Top 25 Travel Gadgets that you, and your clients, won’t want to leave home without.


If you are struggling with your Digital Advertising as a Travel Agent, this issue is for you with Tom Ogg sharing some comprehensive insights into the world of Digital Advertising as a Travel Agent. Additionally, be sure to learn more about the 2018 Digital Report Card which looks at what Digital Marketing worked in 2018 and how to apply it in 2019.
