G Adventures has one wildcard spot for Canadian agents

G Adventures has one wildcard spot for Canadian agents

G Adventures is offering up one wildcard spot to its Change Makers Summit’, to the Canadian travel agent who books the most G Adventures tours in February.

A global gathering of more than 100 agents from UK & Ireland, Europe, Canada, the United States, and Australia and New Zealand,  this years' Change Makers Summit will be held in a secret, undisclosed location from June 2 to June 9. In total five wildcards will be given away globally, with just one agent from Canada earning a wildcard space.

Agents: how have you given back through travel?

Three agents from Canada will be selected based on a ‘social submission’ entry, either written or video, that demonstrates how they’ve given back to others and / or their community. Entries are due by Feb. 28, 2019 and can be submitted via Sherpa, G Adventures’ booking tool.

In total, 15 agents from Canada will attend the Change Makers Summit. Of those 15, just 10 agents will earn their place by changing the most lives during the campaign period (Oct. 1, 2018 to Mar. 31, 2019) and one more wildcard space will be up for grabs during the month of March.

What is the Change Makers Challenge?

The ‘Change Makers Challenge’ is G Adventures’ largest agent incentive to-date and the first of its kind to not focus purely on sales. It challenges agents to focus on changing people’s lives through travel, and invites them to rediscover their purpose: why they love selling travel. Agents who earn their place will be given the opportunity to make meaningful connections with, and learn from, their counterparts across the globe.

“Just as we do on all our trips, we want to bring agents from different parts of the world together, to connect with each other, with our team of Global Purpose Specialists, and with local people in the destination we are travelling to. Now, more than ever, our world deserves more change-making agents, and more global connection,” said David Green, vice president, G Adventures.

Agents can visit or speak to their local global purpose specialist for more information.
