Sandals To Host Annual Workshop Series

Open Jaw

Sandals Resorts will be hosting its annual cross-country tour of travel agent workshops, between May and September.  With workshops in 45 cities from British Columbia to Newfoundland, Sandals is “inviting agents to elevate their success in selling their luxury included resorts and to take their sales to the next level,” according to a statement from the company.

Highlighting the company’s over-the-water villas and bungalows, it’s 5 Star Global Gourmet offering, its new ‘Aisle to Isle’ wedding program, and more, the workshops will focus on how agents can enhance client retention and increase commissions. The workshops also fulfill the educational requirement towards becoming a Certified Sandals Specialist, as well as the maintenance requirement for agents already holding CSS status.

The majority of workshops take place in the morning (7:45am – 12:30pm) however in select cities, afternoon (1-5pm) and evening (5-9pm) sessions are available. In Quebec, workshops are offered in both English and French.

In addition, the Sandals workshops are ACTA approved.  Each travel agent or manager who completes a workshop receives 10 credits towards their Certified Travel Counsellor or Certified Travel Manager designation. 

Space is limited and agents are encouraged to register early by visiting  

A non-refundable fee of $40.00 is required at time of registration.  All participants will receive a workbook, a supply of the newest collateral materials, a certificate upon completion of the workshop and an exclusive booking incentive.
