TRAVEL PLANNERS INTERNATIONAL SIGNS ON TO PARTICIPATE IN ‘TRAVEL AGENTS TAKING OFF’, AN ONLINE NEWS PROGRAM FROM ASTA
ORLANDO, FL – Travel Planners International, a top travel host and sales, marketing and support agency for the travel professional, was asked to participate in “Travel Agents Taking Off” from the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA). It’s an in-depth, consumer awareness, online news program specifically focused on how travel agents and professionals are impacting and shaping the future of the industry. “Travel Agents Taking Off” features interviews, news items and editorial profiles of leaders and key industry organizations in the travel sector.
Jenn Lee, VP of Sales and Marketing, was excited to participate in “Travel Agents Taking Off” and sees it as being able to address the three key purposes TPI works on daily:
• Educating the consumer.
• Energizing the current travel agent base.
• Enlighten and encourage others to become travel agents – to enter this amazing industry called the travel industry.
“Travel Agents Taking Off” will educate consumers on how using a travel agent enhances their experience and vacation, makes things a lot easier, and saves them time, money, and frustration. Consumers are still unaware of the importance of a travel agent’s role in their everyday lives!
“Travel Agents Taking Off” is designed to energize the current travel agent base. These are professionals who’ve either been in the business for a long time and have just found themselves complacent or happy and satisfied with where their business. They don’t realize there’s a massive opportunity to grow, and to define their business even further. The program will clearly shows that the industry is 100 percent behind them and that now is the time to seize the opportunity to grow their business.
“We’re hoping “Travel Agents Taking Off” enlightens millennials, college graduates who are trying to figure out what they want to be when they grow up, and second career seekers who may be looking for another career (multiple streams of income). The series enlightens them on the robust travel industry and how it’s only getting better,” said Jenn Lee, VP of Sales and Marketing.
Travel Planners International is fully dedicated and vested! Jenn Lee, VP of Sales and Marketing, is one of 10 members on the ASTA Consumer Awareness Advisory Committee. It’s yet another example of how sales and marketing and support agencies are stepping up to help travel agents. Consumer awareness and buy-in are the keys to elevating the value of using a travel agent to book their experiences. If this is accomplished, everything else falls into place.
