Travel Counsellor’s Conference 2018

30th May 2018 - 10:08am

Travel Counsellors believe in the importance of celebrating the hard work and commitment of their dedicated travel professionals along with their trade partners, and the annual two-day Travel Counsellor’s Conference is a time to celebrate the company’s successes and achievements. This year’s conference was held in April in the stunning 5-star Powerscourt Hotel, Autograph Collection in Wicklow.

 

The event comprises of networking opportunities with trade partners, benefitting both preferred suppliers and Travel Counsellors by strengthening their product knowledge and range as well as building strong relationships. Over 150 travel professionals were in attendance. Some of the event major sponsors included G Adventures, Cathay Pacific Airlines, Turkish Airlines and Travelport.

 

Both days of the Annual Conference are action-packed, filled with inspiring talks from key members of management and guest speakers such as Steve Byrne, CEO at Travel Counsellors, Waseem Haq, Digital and Innovation Director and Jim Eastwood, Director of Sales.

The famous Pow-Wow exhibition takes place each year where 50+ suppliers set up stalls and network with the Travel Counsellors who put faces to names and learn more about the vast range of suppliers and discover new products, such as new cruise sailings, airline routes or hotels.

 

It’s not ‘all work and no play’ though... this year’s Asian-themed Welcome Party was sponsored by Cathay Pacific and both TC’s and their trade partners enjoyed a great night of delicious food, drinks and networking. The Gala Dinner and Awards Night is the highlight event each year. Over the course of the glamourous gala event, 14 awards were presented, including Best Travel Counsellor, Best Newcomer, Best Supplier and Best Use of Social Media.
