TORONTO — Travel Professionals International (TPI) is reporting a banner year as it closes the books on its 25th year in business, with double-digit growth in sales, commission and membership.
Morris Chia, Executive Chairman of TPI, founded the host agency 25 years ago, “to create a place for entrepreneur minded Advisors to call home and provide them with the support and technology to help them become more successful.”
He adds: “I am pleased to announce that we have experienced a record-breaking double-digit increase this past fiscal in various segments of our business with a particular growth emphasis on FIT bookings. All forward booking indicators also point towards another solid season ahead. I applaud all the efforts of our TPI Advisors and thank them for all their hard work and passion that they bring to their business.
“As we move into our 26th year in business, TPI will continue to focus on what is mostly relevant for our Advisors – to be more efficient, and to increase their earnings.”
TPI CEO Zeina Gedeon says 2019 was a turn-around year for TPI. “After 25 years in the business we needed to reinvent the company, to make sure we are fully supporting our Advisors. We will continue to keep our Advisors at the forefront for everything we implement, all decisions are made by our Advisors for our Advisors. Each execution is carefully matched with the thought of how this would enrich our Advisor’s business. To ensure we see continued growth, the key is to focus not only on innovation but synergy and communication with our Advisors in mind.”
Gedeon adds that as TPI moves into its new fiscal year, the organization will continue to forge ahead with programs “that allow their Advisors’ business to thrive” and with the help of the head office team TPI is confident that the year ahead will be even more successful than the last: “Keep your eye on TPI this year, there will be some incredible opportunities for Advisors ahead!”
