Over 230 Travel Centres Members and trade partners descended on the 5-star, Fota Resort in Cork for the 14th Travel Centres Conference last weekend. 2018's theme was "Meet - Network - Do Business". A full day's activities commenced on Friday morning with a closed session for delegates followed by lunch, sponsored by Travelport, in Fota Restaurant followed by guest speaker, Declan O'Connell on Personal Performance.

 

Given the growth in the cruise market, this product's complexity and, consequentially the need for travel agent expertise in this segment, the afternoon session was a very topical panel discussion, "The Future of Cruise" moderated by Eoghan Corry followed by a trade partner suppliers Q&A which ignited some lively debate regarding dynamic packaging and traditional tour operating distribution channels. With much to reflect and digest, attendees retired to their 5-star rooms to prepare for an evening of discussion, dining and bonding with friends, colleagues and suppliers. Pre-drinks, sponsored by Amadeus preceded the owners/managers dinner at the Club House with wines sponsored by Sunway.
