19 Nov Travel Leaders Network Honors 2018 Elite Members
Top-selling travel agencies feted during river cruise on AmaWaterways’ AmaPrima
New York, NY (November 19, 2018) – Travel Leaders Network celebrated its 2018 Elite Members with a spectacular river cruise from Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Basel, Switzerland this month aboard AmaWaterways’ AmaPrima. Elite membership is awarded each year to 30 agencies among Travel Leaders Network Affiliate Members who are the top sellers and leading supporters of preferred supplier partners.
“Our Elite group comprises those agencies operating the most successful businesses among our membership,” said Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Network. “They represent an extraordinary group of savvy and dedicated travel professionals and it is a pleasure to honor them each year during our very special Elite Member journey.”
During this year’s trip, participants had the opportunity to experience Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Bruges and Antwerp, Belgium; Kinderdijk and Delft, Holland; and Dusseldorf and Heidelberg, Germany via history, cultural and architectural tours, biking excursions, artisan craft-making experiences and exquisite meals, among many other activities. On board the AmaPrima, members participated in business updates, supplier roundtables and a number of special meals and receptions. The trip kicked off with a pre-cruise VIP reception hosted by the Waldorf Astoria and Hilton Hotels in Amsterdam, along with a number of memorable sightseeing opportunities in that city.
“Our 2018 Elite Event was a wonderful journey befitting the outstanding travel professionals we were honoring,” said Block. “We thank our preferred supplier partners who participated, as well, for their partnership and support.”
