Countdown to First European River Cruise Summit with Avalon Waterways and ACTA

Avalon Waterways on the Rhine

One hundred and thirty Canadian travel advisors will join Avalon Waterways’ European River Cruise Summit in partnership with ACTA.

The custom charter cruise for Canadian travel advisors will set sail from Amsterdam. The seven-day “Romantic Rhine” itinerary is anticipated to run from 21-28OCT 2023, during which travel advisors will be invited to customize their journey before disembarking in Basel, Switzerland.

Onboard workshops planned for this event include:

  • A New Wave in Cruising: Set Sail with Avalon Waterways. Learning more about the Avalon Waterways difference.
  • Jump Ship!: Introducing River Cruising to Ocean Cruise Clients. Tailoring the sales approach from oceans to rivers while addressing advantages as well as misconceptions.
  • Navigating New Waters: Finding the Right River Cruise Clients. Exploring research findings that provide valuable insights into this new wave in cruising, the right guests and ways to get them on board.
  • Set Sail for Success: The Power & Profitability of Groups. Gaining valuable insights and proven strategies for effectively marketing and selling river cruises to groups while maximizing earning potential.

“Recognizing that river cruising is the fastest growing travel option across the globe, it’s clear that a new wave in cruising is on the world’s rivers,” said Wendy Paradis, ACTA President. “Through our first River Cruise Summit with Avalon Waterways, we look forward to providing a great networking opportunity for Canadian travel advisors as well as the chance to learn for themselves why river cruising provides a great opportunity for them to really grow their business.”

Advisors and their hosts will spend time in Amsterdam, Cologne, Koblenz, Heidelberg, Strasbourg, Colmar, and Breisach before disembarking in Basel.
