Travel Professionals International (TPI) has launched its FAM trip program entitled TPI STEP (Specialized Travel Education Program). TPI STEP trips are small-group educational excursions developed and offered exclusively to hand-selected TPI travel advisors.
The inaugural STEP trip, with Transat Holidays, took 18 TPI travel advisors and support staff to Punta Cana, where advisors toured various resorts, networked with their fellow advisors and took part in a mock wedding.
“I’m pleased that our innovative segment leadership is once again proven by the fact that demand is currently outstripping supply for this new program,” said Morris Chia, TPI President & CEO. “We’re currently working with our preferred partners to ensure TPI advisors have many more opportunities to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity.”
Based on its success thus far, TPI preferred partners have been keen to be invited to join the STEP program, with upcoming TPI STEP trips planned with AmaWaterways (June 2016), Collette Vacations (August 2016), Visit Orlando (November 2016) and Transat Holidays (December 2016).
TPI travel advisors are able to offset the cost of participation in the trip through the use of reward dollars as part of their membership in TPI’s Velocity recognition program. In addition to attending all TPI STEP events, accepted advisors are required to share their experience digitally across social media and in-person at TPI events for the betterment of their costumers and their TPI travel advisor peers.
