MILLERSVILLE, Md., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Travel Advantage Network (TAN), a wholesale vacation accommodations program, is celebrating 20 years in business. Established March 22, 1992, TAN was born of president and founder Brad Callahan's desire to create a client-centric travel accommodations experience. The organization has grown from a staff of 12 employees to more than 115 employees while boasting a diverse portfolio of properties to enhance the leisure travel experience for its nearly 80,000 clients.

"For 20 years, TAN has personified the spirit and value of service. Everyone in this organization has never lost sight of my founding mission to focus on our clients to create lasting vacation memories. We have even seen the transition from one generation to the next as children who were raised traveling in our program now travel as new TAN clients with families of their own," states Brad Callahan, president of Travel Advantage Network.

To commemorate the anniversary, TAN is honoring its clients and the significance of reaching the 20 year milestone. Some of these celebrations and events include launching a revamped website, and featuring special client focused stories such as the company's longest-standing client and highlighting a family that has booked more than 200 week-long vacations in just 11 years. Clients will also be able to visit the website at and get the inside scoop on TAN's top 20 properties and 20 reasons to book a vacation now.

In addition to its dedication to clients, TAN has been equally dedicated to charitable giving throughout its twenty years.

Travel Advantage Network commits to monthly charitable events through various fundraising activities that encourage TAN team members to contribute. In 2011, TAN raised more than $12,000 for various local and national charities. These charitable efforts align with the organization's resolve to focus on others and further its commitment to the value of personal touch.

Since 1992, TAN, a wholesale priced vacation accommodations program, has helped families and individuals create lifelong vacation memories.
