TPI’s Cross Canada Summit Tour Wraps Up

TPI travel advisors take part in the partner networking cocktail event at the
TPI Summit in Edmonton.


TPI’s annual cross Canada Summit Tour
was attended by over 350 advisors and preferred partner representatives who took part in training and networking events throughout 9 cities in 11 days: 04MAY – Winnipeg; 05MAY – Edmonton; 06MAY – Calgary; 07MAY – Saskatoon; 09MAY – Vancouver; 11MAY – Ottawa; 12MAY – Toronto; 13MAY – St. John’s & 14MAY – Halifax.

Tim Morgan, Vice President; Christine Winchester, National Director of Sales and Sheila Lamirande, Senior Operations Manager, travelled across the country to deliver industry and TPI-specific updates related to the company’s focus on increasing advisor commission margins and technology leadership. In addition, Regional Sales Managers, Linda Dinsmore (Western Canada), Rhonda LaFosse (Ontario) and Lisa Geddes (Atlantic Canada), hosted best practice group exercises related to “working smarter, not harder” and multiple preferred partner presentations.

Following the daytime events, advisors were able to network with their peers and preferred partner representatives during a cocktail and trade show event plus take part in an exclusive dinner for TPI’s top producing advisors.

“As the spring complement to our fall annual conference, the TPI Summit tour is an integral component of our regular events happening online and offline across Canada,” said Morris Chia, TPI President & CEO. “Well worth the substantial investment by us and our partners, our business is nothing without on-the-ground relationship building that comes from this and all our events.”

The 2016 TPI Summit events were generously presented by Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations. Further support is being provided by Allianz Global Assistance and Transat Holidays/Nolitours, among others.
