TORONTO — TPI’s new sister company Debut Voyages, billed as a new concept in independent travel advisor networks, is a completely different business model from TPI and will operate completely separately. It will also “attract the best of the best in luxury advisors”, says Managing Director, Samantha Jervis.
A division of IAS Corp., parent company of TPI, Debut Voyages will be an exclusive invite-only network for travel advisors based on experience, luxury supplier mix and revenue qualification, she adds.
While more details about the new venture will be revealed in the months to come, for now Jervis says Debut Voyages “is what many experienced and successful travel advisors have been searching for.”
The new luxury travel network is scheduled to launch in February led by industry veteran Jervis, who brings more than 26 years of international experience and relationships in the luxury travel industry to her role. Her previous work includes management positions with Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Rosewood Hotels.
“We are thrilled to have Samantha at the helm to lead Debut Voyages, a new division of IAS,” said Morris Chia, President and CEO of IAS-Independent Agency Services Corp., a Virtuoso Top 10 worldwide member.
