G Adventures has announced it is opening up its flagship training event, Special Agent G, to all travel agents across Canada. The certification course is free to attend, and will be held virtually on 09-10JUN from 11.00am – 4.00pm EDT. Special Agent G is open to all Canadian agents, including those who have completed a Special Agent G training course in-person before.
In order to qualify for Special Agent G, travel agents should first register at this link, and they will then be given instructions on how to complete two introductory training modules prior to the event.
During the event, agents will have the opportunity to attend panel events and talks, including a keynote by G Adventures’ founder, Bruce Poon Tip, and to learn about the 10 different travel styles across G Adventures’ portfolio. Additionally, they will hear from experts about popular adventure destinations such as Peru and Jordan, thanks to sponsorships from the Jordan Tourism Board and PROMPERÚ. Agents will also have the chance to learn new skills, with sessions focused on how to build their business, including audience engagement and social media.
Participants who “complete their mission” by attending all sessions in real time will be awarded a digital certificate to recognize their training milestone. There will also be prizes up for grabs including G Adventures tours, and goods from local Canadian brands such as Saje Natural Wellness and Collective Arts Brewing. There will also be promotions exclusive to Canadian agents, which are only accessible to those who participate in the two-day event, giving those agents the ability to pass on exclusive deals to their Canadian clients.
Registration is open now. Highlights of the event include:
- Training – Through training sessions, panel discussions and take-home content, agents will learn valuable skills to build their travel business
- Preparation – G Adventures will help agents prepare for the expected travel surged with a portfolio of tools and networking opportunities with destination sponsors
- Exclusive offers – Agents will have access to consumer offers for three months that are exclusive to attendees
- Giveaways – G Adventures have lots of prizes to be won, including four adventures given away at the beginning of the event, and spot prizes from Canadian brands
“We are delighted to bring our Special Agent G event into the virtual world. We’ve been running these events as invitation-only, in-person training sessions at our Basecamp office in Toronto for several years with great success, so to be able to open it up to all agents across Canada via our virtual platform is super exciting,” said David Green, VP Commercial at G Adventures.
Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures adds: “Travel agents played a critical role in supporting their clients and have truly proven their value these past 14 months. While this has been incredibly hard for all of us, we can now look forward with optimism. Thank you in advance to all the agents who believe in all we do here at G Adventures and are committed to making a difference by bringing travel back better. We are delighted to bring you this free event as a small thank you, and we also look forward to welcoming new agents of change into our community.”
