Avoya sees returns with Avoya Travel Institute educational forum

Avoya Travel hosted its first-ever Avoya Travel Institute this month to give independent agencies in the Avoya Travel Network exclusive networking with the company’s Diamond Level Preferred Suppliers.

With the addition of the Avoya Institute, Avoya says it’s offering even more educational opportunities and resources to help Independent Agencies grow their businesses and incomes.

The two-day event centered on relationship building and networking between Independent Agencies and Avoya’s Diamond Level Preferred Suppliers.

Programming included small group roundtables with vendors as well as hands-on workshops and educational time with Avoya’s Groups Department, Promotions Department, and Support Staff teams. Attendance was limited for an intimate setting that allowed Independent Agencies more time for education and networking.

The Avoya Institute took place Aug. 9 – 10 in San Diego at the Sheraton Mission Valley. Avoya’s Diamond Level Preferred Suppliers that participated in the event include Allianz Global Assistance, AmaWaterways, Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Contiki, Crystal Cruises, Globus family of brands, Holland America Line, Insight Vacations, The Mark Travel Corporation, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Silversea Cruises, Trafalgar, and Windstar Cruises.

Earlier this year Avoya announced a new Avoya Mastermind Academy series, enhanced to meet the needs of Avoya’s expanding Network. In May, the company held its Avoya Conference, which is the largest annual event for Avoya’s support staff, Independent Agencies, and supplier partners.
