Jet2holidays has announced its prestigious VIP travel agent conference for 2017, further strengthening its commitment to independent travel agency partners following its biggest ever conference last year.
The details of the conference were revealed by Head of Trade, Alan Cross, at a series of special launch events for agency partners in Newcastle, Manchester and London this week. He announced that the leading package holiday specialist will be whisking 240 independent travel agents to two conferences at the 5-star Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife in November and December.
Both events will provide top performing and high potential agency partners with an opportunity to learn more about Jet2holidays’ future vision from CEO Steve Heapy, alongside interactive sessions on how to promote and sell package holidays in order to further boost their own growth and expansion. As well as focusing on working in partnership with Jet2holidays, the conferences will also highlight the opportunities that Jet2Villas gives independent travel agents, with hundreds of villas now on sale for the first time.
There will also be presentations, supplier showcases, a gala dinner and a breakfast pool party, with the second conference featuring a high-profile awards ceremony recognising the best-selling and most successful agents of the past 12 months.
Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays, said: “Jet2holidays continues to enjoy fantastic support and sales from independent travel agents, which shows that our approach to working in partnership with them is the right one. This special VIP conference is a way of saying thanks to our best performing agents, as well as those who are committed to our partnership approach, and I’m looking forward to a very productive and enjoyable event. Partnerships with independent travel agents are an absolutely critical part of our business and these special VIP conferences at the amazing Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife will celebrate and strengthen them.”
