That’s why it is truly an honor to recognize our members with these prestigious awards. As we gather together at CoNexion, it is sincerely inspiring to see all that Nexion Canada agents have accomplished in the last year and will achieve in the coming year.”

The inaugural award winner was Bernadette Parrott.
  • Superstar Award – A Superstar is a Nexion Canada member who represents the travel industry with pride and shows continued growth in their knowledge of the industry. Dorothy Tam (also in the Circle of Excellence) was honored as the 2017 Nexion Canada Superstar.
