On 29 and 30 September the travel consortium will be hosting two days of cruise training in Southampton, starting with a speed-dating style session at the Grand Harbour Hotel. Designed to allow agents to meet the 14 cruise suppliers already signed up for the event, including APT, Crystal Cruises and Saga, attendees will also have the chance to network at the evening function.

In between the events, agents will also benefit from presentations from Andy Harmer, operations director for CLIA Europe and director of CLIA UK and Ireland, and one of the consortium’s top performing cruise agents, Jason Peters from Creative Cruises.

The second day will focus on delivering hands-on experience of the ships thanks to an exclusive visit to Celebrity Eclipse, hosted by Celebrity Cruises. The on-board training session will give agents essential experience of cruise ships and the calibre of features their customers can expect at sea.

The Global Travel Group is also organising a series of regional one-day training events over the coming months focused around differing travel products. The events provide agents and suppliers with the opportunity to enjoy valuable one-on-one meetings during the day’s speed-networking sessions.

Upcoming training days include:

7 September:        Copthorne Hotel, Salford, Manchester

8 September:        Boreham House, Chelmsford, Essex

22 November:       Clayton Hotel, Leeds (NB: Luxury themed)

23 November:       Copthorne, Crawley, West Sussex (NB: Luxury themed)


Andy Stark, managing director, the Global Travel Group said:

“In a fast-evolving industry, our ongoing training events give members the opportunity to continually build on their travel knowledge and stay one step ahead of the competition. I’m confident that our combination of regional training days and themed events, including our upcoming cruise roadshow, will help develop their skills.”

With all training sessions exclusive to The Global Travel Group’s members, agents keen to reserve their place at the free training events should contact The Global Travel Group’s commercial team.
