TORONTO — Stéphanie Bishop, Managing Director for the Globus family of brands, had nothing but high praise for the company’s travel agent partners at the Annual Partner Appreciation lunch.
“We’re very lucky to have all of you as partners in our business,” said Bishop, speaking to a crowd of more than 60 at Sassafraz restaurant in Toronto. “We are in a relationship business. We value that tremendously. We don’t take it for granted.”
Bishop said that despite some “tough choices” in 2017, “when we make decisions, we make them with you in mind as well.”
She added to applause: “We would not be where we are if it wasn’t for you.”
The Globus family of brands’ worldwide product offering includes Italy, a major focus for 2018 across the company’s brands. This year’s Italy lineup includes 15 itineraries with Globus, 11 with Cosmos and plenty of City Getaways and countless combinations ranging from four to 16 days with Monograms.
The company is also fully onboard with the growing trend to off-season travel, with Escapes by Globus, launched in November 2017 with winter escapes right through March, at prices up to 40% cheaper than summer offerings.
