“Our members were so engaged”: TL Network Canada wraps up Canadian Fall Regionals

TORONTO — TL Network Canada has wrapped up its Canadian Fall Regional Events with a renewed sense of optimism and energy for the new year ahead.

The three in-person events took place in Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver, welcoming over 405 travel advisors and 137 supplier partners. This year’s ‘PEAK’ theme, which stands for ‘Programmes, Education, Advisors and Knowledge,’ highlighted how TL Network advisors can leverage the tools and training available to them to help grow their business.

Said Christine James, TL Network’s Vice President: “Our members were so engaged. The events provided excellent opportunities for both our owner/managers and frontline advisors to connect in-person with peers, to educate themselves about our top-notch agency enhancing programs, and to learn how to tailor them to their own business needs. Each city offered an unforgettable day of innovation, learning and networking that has proven both popular and productive, year after year, and helps agencies get the most out of their valuable TL Network membership while having fun.”

Each regional conference featured over three hours of workshops and panels that covered such topics as technology, marketing and selling tools, frontline agency training, and TL Network program updates. Following educational sessions, members were able to meet and network with supplier partners during sold-out, one-hour interactive trade shows, which were followed by a full-course plated dinner and an interactive game show experience during which several grand travel prizes were awarded.

Feedback from travel advisors has been overwhelmingly positive. First-time attendee Robin Leblevec of TTAND Agent in Vancouver, who took part in the Fall Regional Conference in Vancouver, described the event as an eye-opening and rewarding experience.

“It was well organized and there was ample time allotted for presentations and the trade show experience, which helped connect us with key suppliers in the travel industry. The intimacy of the event provided a fabulous opportunity for us to have conversations with not only our beloved suppliers but also other agents and TLN’s team. I look forward to attending next year’s conference,” said Leblevec.

Carolyn Bryant, Owner of Let’s Go Travel in Burlington, ON, said: “The TL Network Conference in Toronto was inspiring, engaging and overall, an excellent event to attend. We are always managing the most effective ways to invest time in our business and TL Network’s Toronto Regional covered every facet, from training to marketing strategies and superb networking. The quality of all attendees and exhibitors at the trade show showed the power of resiliency. I’ve been in this industry for over 30 years and I still take away new learnings from this conference so that we can continue to grow and keep one step ahead of the competition.”
