Sandals to offer cross-country agent workshops

TORONTO — Sandals will be hittin’ the open road to conduct a series of informative travel agent workshops across the country.

Set to take place from April through September, the roadshow will stop in over 50 cities, giving agents the chance to learn what makes Sandals Resort the “game changer” in the all-inclusive industry and how they can build their business, access marketing tools and earn more commissions.

The fast-paced workshops will fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirements for agents already holding CSS status. The morning sessions take place from 7:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and include breakfast (with the exception of two afternoon sessions in Quebec City and Laval, which include lunch). In Quebec, workshops are offered in both English and French.

Moreover, the workshops are ACTA approved, meaning each travel agent or manager who completes a session will receive 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation.

Space is limited and agents are encouraged to register early. A non-refundable fee of $35 is required at time of registration. All participants will receive a workbook, a supply of collateral materials, a certificate upon completion and an exclusive booking incentive.

To register go to uvisandals.ca.
