Plymouth, MN (July 12, 2017) – Travel Leaders Network – the travel industry’s largest travel agency organization – is pleased to announce that nearly 165 travel agencies have recently joined the powerhouse organization through the first half of 2017. Their combined annual travel sales are nearly $352 million with a mix of corporate and leisure travel clients. Travel Leaders Network is comprised of 6,800 locations in both the United States and Canada, offering both innovative franchise (Associate) and consortium (Member) solutions depending on each individual agency’s objectives and needs.
“We are thrilled to welcome nearly 165 high-caliber agencies to the Travel Leaders Network family. New Member agencies recognize the value of our award-winning programs, tools, and training opportunities,” said Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Network. “Travel Leaders Network continues to attract agencies with our proprietary offerings, such as Agent Profiler, our marketing programs and online booking tools. We celebrate these highly driven travel agencies and look forward to assisting them in meeting and exceeding their goals to thrive and grow.”
The annual travel sales of agencies joining Travel Leaders Network in 2017 is evenly distributed between corporate travel and leisure travel. Two, recent, new Member agencies provided insights into their decisions to join Travel Leaders Network.
“Given Travel Leaders Network’s esteemed reputation and vast network of travel professionals, we felt it was something we should be a part of. We have been rapidly expanding, so it seemed like the logical next step. We joined a couple of months ago and have already reaped many benefits,” said Allegra Lynch, owner of Travel Leaders in Santa Rosa, CA. “Being a part of the network gives us access to so many resources and provides us with the opportunity to bring our team to the forefront and promote each as individual experts within very targeted niches. We have already made many connections through Travel Leaders Network that are contributing to the expansion of our agency.”
“I have listened to colleagues say for years how much Travel Leaders has helped their business grow. I found myself at a pivotal point with my business, where I knew I had to find the right resources available to help me grow my business, or I would face the risk of becoming stagnant,” said Travel Leaders Network Member Carrie Chipley of Aviston, IL. “After much research, I discovered that Travel Leaders Network had the most resources to help me achieve the next level in growth and sales. The pinSIGHT and CruisePRO programs have allowed my agency to become more efficient, as well as competitive. Also, with so many suppliers in the market today, having all of the updates and special offers come through one centralized location such as Travel Leaders Network, we now surely won’t miss a sale, incentive, or industry update.”
