TORONTO — It was the perfect spot for a first in-person get-together in more than 19 months: BATL Axe Throwing.
Last week TPI’s executive and advisors were joined by supplier partners for a fun night of axe-throwing at the Toronto venue.
“We wanted to throw axes at COVID while having fun with it and celebrate our partnership with our amazing suppliers,” says Zeina Gedeon, CEO, TPI.
“We are so excited that we finally got to see everyone in person and take our frustrations on boards, instead of each other. Our relationship with suppliers is very important and critical for both of us and it is important to be there for each other, in good times and bad times, this is not a one-way street – it is a partnership,” she added.
More than 40 supplier partners came out for the event. Gedeon along with Sneha Varghese, TPI’s Director of Marketing & Partnerships, welcomed participants and thanked all of TPI’s partners for their support and positive attitude over the challenging times.
Gedeon noted that “it has not been an easy road for any of us during these past 20 months, but we could not have come this far without the support of our partners. It is truly a time to celebrate partnerships. Together we are ready to emerge and move forward.”
A high-spirited axe throwing battle then ensued, with Transat’s Pat Brady, Goway’s Rares Dumitru and Railbookers’ Cris David celebrated as the winners.
TPI’s in-person annual conference is scheduled for May 2022 at Cancun’s Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres.
