“Our members are extremely interested in expanding their luxury travel business,” explained Cris de Souza, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nexion Travel Group. “Over the years, we have increased our offerings in this area to meet our members where they are and provide the necessary professional development to succeed in the luxury travel segment.”
The Luxury Travel Sales Summit, now in its fourth year, is an invitation-only event for Nexion Travel Group’s top-selling luxury members. The event focuses on deepening relationships between advisors and preferred suppliers, as well as providing education on ways to expand their luxury business and clientele. Nexion Travel Group members were able to meet one-on-one with luxury travel suppliers and destination marketing partners, as well as Select Hotel partners who provided a hotel immersion day. Nexion Travel Group’s sister companies ALTOUR, Protravel International and Cruise Specialists were on hand to offer advice and guidance on luxury travel. Attendees were also treated to a surprise-and-delight event of a private party at the Phoenix Zoo.
“Our top luxury advisors have developed a profitable niche, but selling luxury travel requires the travel professional to remain updated on the latest trends and offerings. The Luxury Travel Sales Summit is designed to take these advisors’ business to the next level and give them chances to learn from the top luxury travel companies. Past and current Luxury Travel Sales Summit attendees often say that building these supplier relationships is one of the biggest reason to come to this event,” de Souza commented.
Nexion Travel Group members at the Luxury Travel Sales Summit are given the opportunity to apply to attend ILTM. A record number of these members have been chosen to attend this prestigious luxury conference.
The Leap Into Luxury event is designed for the Nexion Travel Group member who wants a rigorous entry-level exposure to luxury travel. This event is open to all members who show an interest, and gives attendees a solid foundation in selling luxury travel. By the end of the course, participants have the basis to build out this niche, learn how to prospect new luxury clients and turn their current clients into luxury travelers, and more. Leap Into Luxury also connected the travel advisors with select luxury travel suppliers so they could learn the best ways to sell their luxury products.
Mickey Weill, Vice President of Business Development for Protravel International, was the keynote speaker at Leap Into Luxury and focused on understanding the mindset of the luxury traveler and how the travel advisor can connect to them.
“Nexion Travel Group supports all of our members who want to sell luxury travel,” said Jackie Friedman, CTC, CTIE, President of Nexion Travel Group. “Whether it is someone just starting out, or a seasoned luxury travel advisor, we see it as our calling to develop them into the best travel professional they can be. We are thrilled to offer these two summits, and look forward to seeing what our members do with the luxury travel knowledge they gained there.”
