More than 100 agents come out for TripOppo’s Asia & Beyond event

MARKHAM — TRIPOPPO hosted its Asia & Beyond travel showcase and dinner recently at the Toronto Marriott Markham.

The event was attended by 100+ travel agents, as well as tourism board reps for China, Hong Kong, Indonesia and South Korea, plus airline reps for Air Canada, Cathay Pacific, China Southern Airlines and Hainan Airlines.

TripOppo’s predecessor, Nexus Holidays Canada, got its start in Toronto in 2005. Nexus Holidays expanded to offer tour programs to South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. “During the pandemic, they did not stand still but prepared to serve our agents better as we introduced TripOppo in January 2022, focusing on the group travel segment,” says Tres Lobo, now with TripOppo.

TripOpps focuses on three key areas of group travel:

  1. Value-focused. Says Lobo: “Many agents have expressed their astonishment at the high standard of service we provide at such an attractive price. There is no doubt that our goal is to give travellers the best possible value.”
  2. Real experiences. “In every TripOppo trip, local experiential components are considered for the travellers. We strive to anticipate emerging trends to enhance our itineraries and respond to our travel partners’ and travellers’ inputs to ensure that our guests experience the local culture and participate in exciting activities.”
  3. One-stop, worry-free service. “Travellers desire a hassle-free tour because most group members are 55+. In one centralized operation, TripOppo works with agents to handle clients’ travel-related needs, such as flights, visas, insurance, and lodging. With a preparatory meeting before the trip, on-the-spot problem-solving during the tour, and a post-tour review survey, agents can rest assured their clients are in good hands.”

The highlight of the event, says Lobo, was former CTV sports anchor Joe Tilley presenting a video, and sharing his experiences, of an Egypt tour he took in November with TripOppo.

TripOppo’s group tours cover Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, South America and many destinations worldwide, with hundreds of tour itineraries. For more information see tripoppo.com.
