TORONTO — The Travel Agent Next Door is celebrating Travel Agent Day throughout the month of May to show its continuing support and appreciation for its agent partners.
The monthly events kicked off yesterday, May 5 on Travel Agent Day, with TTAND founder Flemming Friisdahl and VP Talent Development Rhonda Stanley hosting a special webinar during which an appreciation video featuring heartfelt messages from consumers to agents was shown.
The webinar concluded with a Travel Agent Trivia contest with almost 200 agents registered. The top prize was $150. The trivia contest will be a two-part series with a total of $450 in prizes.
Throughout May agents are encouraged to share their favourite travel stories from their career on TTAND’s private Facebook group, ‘The Isolation Page,’ where the company has hosted a number of engagement initiatives throughout the pandemic.
Also during Travel Agent Month, TTAND will release ‘MORE’ appreciation videos from Preferred & Approved suppliers. The videos feature BDMs recording custom messages dedicated to TTAND’s agents, wishing them a happy Travel Agent Day and thanking them for all that they’ve done.
“We truly believe that our partners deserve more than just a day to celebrate their hard work. The past year has been challenging and we want to make sure they know just how valued they are,” said Friisdahl.
The Travel Agent Next Door has also partnered with BizXcel to organize a virtual networking event for agents to connect after 200 agent partners voiced their interest in the event. Taking place May 20, it will include a keynote speech from Gary Gzik who’ll discuss the impact of the pandemic on businesses and how partners can take action to not just survive but also thrive during this time. His speech will be followed by a networking session.
