At Travel Leaders Network's international conference, EDGE, in Aurora, CO, attendees were surprised with a special announcement on 13JUN: Holland America Line offered every travel advisor in attendance (and a guest) a complimentary Alaska cruise for the 2022 season.
EDGE attendees will have their pick of HAL's Alaska cruises through the end of the 2022 season in OCT.
"As we celebrate our 75th anniversary this year, we can't wait to welcome Travel Leaders Network advisors on board," said Michelle Sutter, vice president of sales of Holland America Line.
"The best way to sell a product is to experience it for yourself, whether these advisors are sailing with us for the first or hundredth time, I know that they will have a wonderful time on our ships and exploring the beautiful and unmatched Alaskan wilderness."
"Holland American Line is an amazing partner," said John Lovell, President of Travel Leaders Group, who was on stage with the cruise line during the announcement.
"They strongly believe in the importance of the travel advisor and the travel agency distribution channel, in addition to having a fantastic product. I am so happy that EDGE attendees will have the chance to experience it. On behalf of everyone at Travel Leaders Network, I thank Holland America Line for its partnership and this generous gift."
Over 1,500 attendees, consisting of its travel advisor members, staff and supplier partners attended the conference 12-15JUN.
“As the travel industry continues is remarkable recovery, EDGE is a time to celebrate all that TLN members have achieved and that the best is yet to come," said Roger E. Block, President of Travel Leaders Network.
"It is also a valuable opportunity for TLN members to get ideas and gain connections that can help them as they bring their travel agencies to greater success. By the time EDGE concludes, I have no doubt that Travel Leaders Network members will be heading home not only with great memories of a fun time, but with ideas they can use to build their businesses.”
