Big Business Expected With Travel Leaders Group
Travel Leaders Group is the largest travel agency in the United States with approximately 6,000 agencies under its wing. During the event that takes place November 14-15, the Riviera Nayarit will be able to negotiate with over 400 travel agents for the tourism corridor, which includes the area of Puerto Vallarta.
The Riviera Nayarit will represent the tourism corridor, which also includes Puerto Vallarta, during the annual sales meeting of the Travel Leaders Group consortium, the largest travel agency in the United States.
The meeting will take place in Atlanta, Georgia, from November 14-15, 2013, where the destination will promote the joint campaign “Vallarta-Nayarit, Live it to believe it” under the aegis of the Mexico Tourism Board.
Travel Leaders offers personalized service with agents experienced in leisure and corporate travel through its more than 6,000 agencies, company-owned, franchised and affiliated throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia.
Together the travel agencies that make up Travel Leaders represent 30 percent of the agencies in all of North America. Its entire team—from their expert agents all the way to their executives—is dedicated to offering the best travel experience possible.
“We’ll have the opportunity to make one-on-one presentations to over 400 travel agents that already specialize in selling international tourism services,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This is an excellent occasion to train them so they can continue to sell the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta.”
Travel Leaders has over 1,250 full-service franchised locations that produce annual sales of over $5 billion dollars.
“Many of these agents are located in states that are based in our natural markets, such as California, Texas, Colorado and Minnesota,” Murphy added.
According to a poll conducted by the Riviera Nayarit CVB during August of 2013, California is number one of the main U.S. markets visiting the Riviera Nayarit at 30 percent, followed by Illinois with 21 percent and Texas with 18 percent.
