Ensemble, the large retail consortium – numbering currently some 400 locations across North America – has a new look to its magazine.

To be published quarterly, Range will be available for member agencies to purchase for their clients and is designed to help clients learn more about destinations, tours, and cruises with a focus on “new” places and fresh twists.

It will be complemented by a sister publication, Range Best, which will be published 8 times a year, designed to appeal to the growing luxury travel segment.

Things certainly are busy at Ensemble. The group was acquired by the Navigatr Group in June of last year.  And the retail group recently announced a packed schedule of member events for this year including:

  • Ensemble Summit in JUN at the Forbes Five-Star Stein Eriksen Lodge in Utah for agency management and senior partner leaders;
  • Ensemble Beyond, for top 2022 performers, in AUG in partnership with preferred partner Explora Journeys;
  • Ensemble Horizons, the “gathering for the entire Ensemble community” in NOV at Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino; and
  • Uncharted, a live virtual FAMs with 32 tourist boards, tour operators and cruise lines, will be held in APR.
