October 2019

It’s with great joy that I share this October 2019 issue of Travel Professional NEWS with you. I am certain that there is information, education and tools within these pages to help you grow, succeed and flourish as a Travel Professional. It’s an exciting time for our business as 2020 approaches and we are excited to show you all of the new things we have been working on, very soon. 


As the new year creeps into picture, slightly more each day, we are excited to be joined by Ann Chamberlin, VP of Sales for the Scenic Eclipse, a ship that may very well revolutionize the reality of luxurious adventure travel for the world. Join myself and Ann for a great discussion about the Scenic Eclipse, it’s road to existence and some of the amazing benefits that only can be found on-board. 


As the pages unfold, join our good friend Cris De Souza of Nexion Travel Group for a fantastic insight into the power that Nexion Travel Group has cultivated as a Host Agency. From education, increased profits and a wide variety of tools in your reach, Nexion Travel Group has truly enhanced the value offered as a Host Agency for Travel Professionals. 


There is no doubt that adventure and active travel has been on an upswing and I had the opportunity to chat with Sasha Andrews of Exodus Travels on their top sellers, trends and what’s to come as we look forward. Take a trip with Joanie Ogg for a fantastic look at the 2019 PATH Symposium and the amazing opportunities that are being created by the Host Agency marketplace for Travel Professionals, both new and experienced. 


There is simply too many great features to list in this introduction so my last words for the October 2019 issue of Travel Professional NEWS is to grab a coffee, get comfortable and enjoy the amazing information to follow.


Thank you for being the best part of Travel Professional NEWS and we appreciate your time, comments and support.
