Goway’s inaugural Travel Bazaar yields stellar results for agents in five stops across the United States.
|Renee Stanton-Defaria recaps the Roadshow|
Showcasing the best of the the company’s top destination plus its diverse range of options for travel, the roadshow included stops in New York, Florida, Texas, and California. Agents met with the General Managers and VPs of each Goway division, learning more about the company’s destinations, its ongoing evolution, and how Goway can help agents across the United States grow their business.
Each roadshow stop featured three breakout sessions hosted by Goway’s GMs and VPs, followed by a trade show featuring 29 top Goway suppliers including Tourism Australia, Hong Kong Tourism, and AAT Kings. Presentations over dinner closed each event, leaving each of the attending agents more savvy and confident about booking Goway’s destinations and products, including its Groups and Air Only divisions.
“I knew Goway was good at Downunder (Australia and New Zealand), but didn’t realize the extent of the other destinations,” said one agent after the event.
An uptick in leads has confirmed the event’s success, along with unanimous praise from the board of Travel Agents of Nassau and Queens. But some of the 700+ agents attending gave their own positive feedback on the inaugural show. Mary Lee DeFranco of Travelsavers revealed many of their attending agency members have already begun booking with Goway, while Margot Windenburg of AAT Kings called the show “flawless. The turnabout was amazing and the quality of agents was fantastic!”
We are looking forward to a bigger and better USA roadshow in 2020. Coming to a town near you!
My colleague Katarina Bruvo attended the Goway Travel Bazar in Fort Lauderdale last week and was excited about the good attendance and quality of agents present. Congrats on the excellent event! – Ursa of Kompass
Happy to know that there are still companies that “Having Fun” is not their priority, and certainly not the message they deliver! I am really tired of shows and presentations where people scream and everything is glitter, balloons and fireworks, with not a true ethic and professional message. Even the way that all representatives were dressed gives you a clear image of who you are. Hats off Goway!! You are still “old school” with modern technology! – Maxine of Maxxe Travel.
Many of our agency members who attended your event have already started booking with GOWAY! Additionally, I was on the road all last week, in NJ and PA, sharing all I have learned from attending your event….More bookings are on the way! Here’s to a strong partnership. – Mary Lee – Travelsavers
