TravelBrands’ Annual Agent Appreciation Event makes a triumphant return with two sold-out shows
New advancements for travel agents unveiled in Toronto, Montreal, and nationally via live stream
MISSISSAUGA, ON – TravelBrands’ highly-anticipated annual Agent Appreciation Event returned with two spectacular, sold-out shows held in both Toronto and Montreal, with the Toronto show live streamed for travel agents across Canada. The goal of building travel together was beautifully displayed as the industry came together for the first time since 2019.
Participants delighted in meeting with TravelBrands’ top suppliers and marvelled at the tremendous developments in products, platforms, and packages. Some of the highlights included the revamped Access+ agent platform, a brand-new air booking engine with enormous benefits, and close to 1.8 million hotels to choose from. Additionally, as part of the company’s growing commitment to more sustainable practices, this year’s events were ‘green’ with QR codes used in lieu of brochures.
“All I have to say is wow,” says Frank DeMarinis, CEO, TravelBrands. “With two sold-out shows, we are so thankful to our industry partners and the travel agents across Canada who made our return to an in-person agent appreciation event such a success. Travel is back, and we are here to offer agents the best in technology to help them meet their clients’ needs quickly and efficiently while they earn a living doing what they love. At TravelBrands, we continue to reimagine the future of travel, and we’re thrilled to be able to share our journey with Canada’s amazing travel community.”
TravelBrands is elated to see a healthy recovery for travel and encourages agents to book their clients in advance as space is limited and capacity is reduced. With the industry booming again, the TravelBrands team is committed to helping agents access and use the tools that will help them save time so they can serve all their clients with ease.
Some of the other show highlights include dynamic cruise packages with enhanced booking and management capabilities, an array of rich content and product offered on Exotik Journeys, and new spaceflight experiences with Space Perspective coming very soon.
