TORONTO — G Adventures has brought back its G-Normous campaign for the fourth consecutive year, offering four months of incentives totaling $100,000 for the travel trade in Canada and the U.S.
“G-Normous has gained a lot of momentum over the years and it’s a program our agent partners look forward to each January. Last year we experienced a 26% growth in sales from agents who participated,” says Aizaz Sheikh, Canadian Marketing Manager, G Adventures. “As we head into peak booking season, we’re happy extend some great incentives to the agent community and their clients.”
Through April 30 North American agents (excluding Quebec) will have a chance to take advantage of extra commission and win weekly prizes including cash and free trips. The top-selling Canadian agent will receive the $7,500 G-Normous jackpot.
