Comprised of 28 travel professionals specializing in groups, cruises, international destinations and sun products - from independent agencies to chains from coast to coast – ACV’s Travel Advisory Board represents the breadth of the travel agent community and helps strengthen the operator’s connection with its retail partners.

TAB was created to give agents a voice within Air Canada Vacations, allowing members to speak and work with senior management on issues that matter to them. ACV says members will have the opportunity to influence key strategies; share needs and challenges; help Air Canada Vacations understand what it needs to do to propel its relationship with the trade and collaborate on existing and new initiatives that will increase sales for all travel agents. 

The group will meet monthly for the 1st 6 months and then move into quarterly sessions. Meetings will take place at ACV’s Mississauga and Montreal offices as well as through conference calls. An in-destination conference is also under consideration. The 1st TAB meeting is set for 18OCT.
