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.
MIAMI — Palace Resorts has announced that for the first time, the annual Global PRO Awards will take place at the five-star Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos.
Set for Sept. 12-15, the four-day retreat, now in its sixth year, will invite loyal travel agents, industry partners and executives to experience for themselves the #LeBlancEscape lifestyle.
“For this year’s conference, we wanted to stay away from the traditional, structured conference format and offer a different experience,” said Frank Corzo, Vice President of U.S. Field Sales for Palace Resorts. “We want travel agents to discover this great product that is Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos on their own and take back with them incredible memories.”
Corzo added that there’s no better sales tool for an agent than to transmit to their clients their own vacation experience.
“This is an approach where everyone is a winner,” he said. “We want agents to know that they are our top priority and we are continuously looking for new, creative ideas to help them achieve and exceed their sales goals.”
The exclusive event will include a glitzy welcome party and two full days of leisure during which agents can enjoy a variety of activities and excursions, including golf, sailing or simply relaxing in a luxury VIP cabana overlooking the resort’s infinity pool. They’ll also get an exclusive opportunity to preview the resort’s newest offering, the recently unveiled Royal Residence, a lavish two-level residence that comes with a private butler and spans an impressive 18,428 square feet.
Other highlights of the resort that agents can enjoy include a variety of dining options and the 29,000 square-foot BLANCSPA, featuring a hydrotherapy area, hot & cold plunge pools, sauna, herbal steam room, chromotherapy, ice room, relaxation lounge and 25 treatment rooms.
The event will close with a black-tie gala during which the highest producing PRO travel agents will be recognized and honoured.
