You get a cruise! You get a cruise! You get a cruise!
Travel pros who attended Travel Leaders Network’s international conference, “EDGE," this month officially had their Oprah moment.
During the afternoon General Session, John Lovell, president of Travel Leaders Group, was joined on stage by Royal Caribbean International’s Senior Vice-President, Sales, Trade Support and Service Vicki Freed to announce that all TLN advisors attending EDGE would receive a free Royal Caribbean cruise of their choice (with some restrictions).
With more than 1,000 advisors attending EDGE, the giveaway represented “one of the largest the travel services industry had ever seen,” a news release said on Thursday (Oct. 28).
When awarding the cruises, Freed expressed her appreciation for the long history of support that travel advisors have shown Royal Caribbean.
She said she hopes travel advisors would be able to not only explore the Royal Caribbean product but also enjoy a relaxing vacation from the hardships of the global pandemic.
“I am overwhelmed by Royal Caribbean’s generosity,” said Lovell. “They recognize the true value of the travel advisor and have been unwavering in their support of this distribution channel. The announcement of this giveaway immediately brought so much joy to our advisors, and all of us at Travel Leaders Network and Travel Leaders Group are proud to have a partner like Royal Caribbean.”
EDGE, Travel Leaders Network’s international conference took place from Oct. 18-21 at Loews Royal Pacific and Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando in Florida.
More than 1,400 advisors, supplier partners and TLN staff gathered for General Sessions, over a hundred workshops and networking opportunities.
This EDGE conference was the first in-person conference since 2019.
