TORONTO — The first-ever roadshow events for Vision Travel, a Direct Travel company, are proving to be “a huge success”, says Brian Robertson, President of Direct Travel, Canada West.
This week Direct Travel/Vision Travel will host roadshow events in Ontario: in Ottawa (Dec. 1) Waterloo (Dec. 2) and Toronto (Dec. 3). These three get-togethers follow on the heels of the company’s road shows in Western Canada which took place in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Regina.
Comprising a trade show, cocktail reception and holiday themed dinners, the events showcase the participation of as many as 30 leisure and corporate preferred suppliers including Air Canada and ACV; WestJet and WestJet Vacations; Enterprise Rent-A-Car; and the Globus family of brands.
“This is the first time we have done the road show format and it’s proven a huge success,” said Robertson. He added that both supplier and advisor registrations sold out quickly, thanks to what is clearly pent-up demand. “Our senior management are attending every show and meeting with all of our advisor and support teams, and it’s great to see everyone face-to-face. Our preferred partners are so motivated to meet our team members in person and many are celebrating that our sales numbers are surpassing 2019 numbers moving into 2023 and beyond.”
