RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Travel Experts Inc., the premier host agency for independent luxury travel advisors, reports sales have increased by 21% over the same period last year. This news comes as more than 90 of its independent affiliates are en route to Las Vegas to attend Virtuoso Travel Week.
Virtuoso once again named Travel Experts as a finalist for its Top Virtuoso Air Production, and Top Virtuoso Network Production awards in recognition for their outstanding contributions to its network.
"We had a stellar performance in 2016, realizing a 32% revenue boost, and this year we are on target to continue this growth trajectory," said Susan Ferrell, founder and president of Travel Experts. "Through our strong relationship with Virtuoso over the past 16 years, and with access to unmatched global supplier connections, our travel advisors have the recognition of being some of the industry's top-producers year-after-year," she added.
Susan also attributes this steady growth to the strength and longevity of the relationships Travel Experts has built with its network of independent luxury advisors. "This year alone we are awarding an additional 16 Diamond Awards to those celebrating their ten-year anniversary as a Travel Experts affiliate." One hundred and six have now received this award, 37 of whom have been with the host agency for more than 15 years.
In addition, Travel Experts is pleased to welcome 25 new independent luxury advisors to its network, and looks forward to providing the support they need to offer best-in-class service to their existing client base, while they continue to expand and grow their businesses.
"Everyone at Travel Experts is so welcoming and helpful," said Michelle Murré, founder and principal of Azurine Travel. "Since joining Travel Experts we have loved everything about working with them, in fact we wished we'd moved agencies years ago."
All new Travel Expert affiliates are invited to partake in its all-expenses paid two or three day training program hosted at its Raleigh, North Carolina headquarters, which is led by Valarie Johnson, its newly appointed IC Ambassador.
