TORONTO — The Travelweek Group launches its brand new, revamped website – Travelweek.ca – now full of all the information and industry news agents need, plus a few fun surprises.
In conjunction with the unveiling of the new site, the daily newsletter has also been fully revitalized and renamed the Travelweek Daily providing news to agents, directly to their e-mail inboxes.
“We are very proud of our new website and newsletter and have put a lot of time and effort into the content and design,” says Devin Kinasz, Director of Digital Strategy, Travelweek. “This is just one of the many projects underway at Travelweek to ensure that our digital and online offerings are in line with what agents need to do their job more efficiently and effectively.”
Besides the sleek and user-friendly design, the new website will have a lot more content available to keep agents informed. Significantly more news stories will be posted per day, plus the site has a more comprehensive listing of FAMs, events and jobs in the Marketplace section.
Travelweek Deals, which was launched last year and is a tool for agents to find supplier deals, incentives, promotions and seat sales, has gained a lot of momentum. It now has up to 100 or more live deals at any given time, providing a perfect resource for agents to peruse current specials and agent incentives currently being offered by the large suppliers, as well as small hotels and boutique tour operators.
“Travelweek Deals has been a great product for us and is a very important part of the new website,” says Kinasz. “It gives agents a great place to look for a consolidated list of all the specials and agents incentives happening in the industry at any given time.”
The new website will also feature a dynamic blog section with specialized categories such as Industry Experts, Friday Five and On Location giving agents industry information they need, as well as more light-hearted ones such as Annie on the Run, Bloopers and Travel Freely.
“My favourite new blog is the Bloopers,” laughs Kinasz. “We have compiled some of the funniest travel stories, customer complaints, images and cartoons from around the globe and are hoping to put a smile on agents faces every Wednesday. They really do crack me up!”
The Travelweek Group invites all agents to visit the new website at Travelweek.ca. Agents can also sign up for the new and improved daily newsletter, Travelweek Daily, and articles right to your inbox every day by signing up on the homepage of the new website.
