TORONTO – Over 375 travel advisors attended Travel Professionals International’s annual TPI Summit events, which took place in nine major cities across Canada from May 22-June 2.
This marked a significant increase in engagement over 2017, says Zeina Gedeon, CEO. “These events are important touch points for TPI to ensure we continue to help our advisors work smarter and not harder.”
This year’s Summit was sponsored by Transat, Allianz, Royal Caribbean and Platinum Partner, and WestJet Vacations, among others.
A major highlight of the Summit was the launch of TPI’s partnership with Arclabs, which provides clients the ability to pay with Bitcoin-cryptocurrency for their vacations.
“We, as a company, believe in the concept of cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin is a secure, easy option for our customers to purchase vacations,” adds Gedeon.
Other items launched during the Summit events include exclusive consumer offers, lead generation programs and additional technology initiatives that are focused on saving time and making money.
On how the company views its valued advisors, Gedeon says: “They are the backbone of our company, and it’s a great pleasure working together to succeed in business.
The feedback from our Summits that we have received from our advisors and partners was nothing short of fantastic, and the information shared was focused on the tools that can assist with business growth and future success.”
