The Travel Agent Next Door (TTAND) is turning Travel Agent Day into Travel Agent Month to show appreciation for its agent partners.

The monthly events kicked off on May 5th, with Flemming Friisdahl, TTAND Founder and Rhonda Stanley, VP Talent Development, hosting a “Travel Agent Day” webinar dedicated to TTAND agent partners.

During the webinar, The Travel Agent Next Door launched an appreciation video which included heartfelt messages from consumers who wanted to say a special thanks to their travel agent. Watch it here

The webinar concluded with a Travel Agent Trivia contest with almost 200 agents registered. 

The trivia was focused around world geography and TTAND questions and challenged agents to participate with the chance to win the top prize of $150. The trivia contest will be a 2-part series with a total of $450 in prizes.

Showing appreciation

Events will continue throughout May as The Travel Agent Next Door encourages agents to share some of their favourite travel stories from their career on the TTAND private Facebook group “The Isolation Page” where TTAND has hosted numerous engagement initiatives throughout the pandemic.

During Travel Agent Month, TTAND will release MORE appreciation videos from Preferred & Approved suppliers. BDMs recorded custom messages dedicated to the agents of TTAND to wish them a happy Travel Agent Day and thank the agents for all they have 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 interested in the event. 

The event will take place May 20th and will include a keynote speech from Gary Gzik, focusing on discussing the impact of the pandemic on businesses and how partners can take actions to not just survive but thrive during this time. This will be followed by a networking session.
