Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — TL Network Canada says it has added 19 new member agencies year to date in 2018.
Christine James, TL Network’s Vice President who oversees the organization’s operations in Canada, says the steady increase is thanks to a “very targeted approach” and the innovation of training enhancements and tools, crucial in attracting new members and driving leads.
TL Network has some 6,800 travel agency locations across the U.S. and Canada and is one of the largest sellers of luxury travel, cruises, river cruises and tours in the travel agency industry.
“When our member agencies are provided with the right tools, added technology offerings and newly enhanced products, we are able to help them positively grow their bottom line,” says James. “Our goal is to always provide our members with a competitive edge, and that includes having the best training, support and strategic relationships to position them for the best possible success. Our specialist programs are truly unique and immersive and we continue to raise the bar by offering on-demand lessons, webinars, and workshops throughout the year both virtually and in person to help advance our members with a wide variety of learning options.”
