Family Focused Sales Success!

The Family Travel Advisor Forum is an exclusive event designed to engage a global base of suppliers with North Americas leading family travel sellers. The event will bring in upwards of 130 qualified travel sellers, who are hand-selected based on the business opportunities they represent to supplier partners.

Travel agents selected to attend the Forum will take part in a stringent process, including an application, interview and reference check, where their individual annual business will be evaluated to determine eligibility. We will identify top-producing travel agents for our hosted travel agent program, and also offer a reserve of positions for travel agents with a proven book of sales, and aspirations to grow their family travel business. Agents that are selected will be evaluated based on their contribution to the family group market, such as multi-generation travel, reunions among other group getaways.
