“Inspire” Announced as Motivational Theme for Dream Vacations 2018 National Conference Aboard Norwegian Bliss
Home-based travel franchise owners will network and learn ways to take their business to next level
June 29, 2018 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Travel agents with Dream Vacations, which is part of World Travel Holdings - the world's largest cruise agency and award-winning leisure travel company, will take to the high seas aboard the Norwegian Bliss for their annual award-winning weeklong National Conference. Recognized as the most thorough travel agent training at sea, each year’s National Conference has a theme that revolves around supporting the travel agent network’s efforts and motivating them to develop their business. This year’s theme - INSPIRE - was selected with input from agents on what National Conference theme would be the most meaningful to them.
“We are fortunate to work in such a fun industry because as innovators in our field, we are always seeking new ways to inspire our travel partners, network of agents and their customers,” said Drew Daly, general manager of network engagement and performance for Dream Vacations. “What’s more, our agents view each other as family and lean on each other for support and inspiration. National Conference provides the perfect platform to introduce agents to each other and to suppliers.”
The theme of INSPIRE will set the tone for the week aboard Norwegian Bliss, and for the coming year. The ultimate goal of travel agents with Dream Vacations is to inspire travel by using their knowledge to deliver a valuable service as they plan their clients dream vacation experiences. The INSPIRE theme will provide direction and inspiration to focus on the future of the evolving travel industry, as well as each individual agent’s business by educating attendees on how they can take the service they provide to the next level, inspire people to travel and see the world, while also sharing best practices and building stronger personal and professional relationships.
Throughout the week, attendees will participate in motivational general sessions; engaging networking events; one-on-one meetings with cruise, resort and tour suppliers; interactive educational workshops; and peer-to-peer brainstorming sessions. They will learn how to leverage the innovative technology advancements, new training programs and robust sales and marketing programs to elevate their businesses.
“I have been attending National Conference since 2011 and have only missed one due to a travel conflict,” said Ray Teet, Dream Vacations Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist in Palm City, Fla. “I always learn a lot from the presentations, especially from the industry leaders. My most memorable and long-lasting experiences come from networking with fellow franchise owners and associates, and with the headquarters staff. I truly cannot place a monetary value on these exchanges of information and knowledge.”
