Sandals Resorts has announced that it will conduct a series of travel agent workshops, April through September 2017.
The workshops will allow travel agents the opportunity to get up-to-the-minute product information, sales and marketing tips, and commission strategies to boost productivity and profits, offering value to clients.
The workshops fulfill the education 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 (7:45 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.), with afternoon (1:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.) and evening (5:00 – 9:30 p.m.) sessions available in select cities.
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. 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.
Agents can register online at www.uvisandals.ca.
