FORT LAUDERDALE — Avoya Travel will be sailing the high seas next year for its 2020 Avoya Conference, set to take place Oct. 20-26 onboard the newly refurbished Celebrity Equinox.
The annual conference, which aims to celebrate the success of Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network, is also where the next phase of the company’s 2025 plan will be announced.
During the six-night Western Caribbean sailing, travel agents, preferred supplier partners and Avoya support staff will take part in professional development, with programming centering on Avoya 2025, a five-phase plan designed to position Avoya as the #1 vacation platform.
The company’s accomplishments in Phase One will be highlighted, while details about Phase Two will be revealed. New for the 2020 event, Independent Agency attendees will have access to product-themed workshops and can book one-on-one appointments with Diamond Preferred Suppliers.
Other highlights onboard include content-rich general sessions and workshops, a tradeshow, and exclusive networking and social events.
“Celebrity Cruises is excited to welcome Avoya Travel and the elite Avoya Network onboard our newly modernized Celebrity Equinox to experience first-hand the dramatic transformation in ship-wide upgrades and breath-taking reimagined spaces as part of the Celebrity Revolution,” said Dondra Ritzenthaler, Senior Vice President, Celebrity Cruises. “Celebrity Cruises values our partnership with Avoya Travel, and we look forward to continuing our work together to innovate and deliver the best cruise vacation experiences to our mutual guests.”
In 2020, the company will be hosting a record number of education events and has more programming planned than ever before. In addition to the 2020 Conference, seven 2020 dates for the popular Avoya Mastermind Academies are open, and Avoya’s 2020 Land Forum is already sold out following its successful inaugural event held earlier this year.
Registration for the Avoya Conference is now open. Avoya is expecting the event to sell out based on how quickly cabin categories are booking.
