New York, NY (March 1, 2018) Travel Leaders Network – one of America’s largest retail travel agency organizations – recently announced plans for its first-ever Sales Expos, in partnership with authors and consultants Kizer and Bender. The complimentary afternoon events will take place in Detroit (March 6); Dallas (March 8); Anaheim, Calif. (March 13); and Philadelphia (March 15).

“We are thrilled to offer our first-ever Sales Expos to our frontline agents,” said Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Network. “These free events are packed with valuable information, including sales education and training sessions that are specifically designed to give agents a competitive edge. They will help travel advisors gain actionable insights on proven selling techniques to boost the bottom line and learn strategies to leverage preferred supplier relationships as well as provide an excellent opportunity to network with both supplier partners and fellow peers,” Block added.

The four Sales Expos will take place in March in the following locations:

March 6, 2018 March 8, 2018 March 13, 2018 March 15, 2018
Detroit Dallas Anaheim, Calif. Philadelphia
Sheraton Detroit Metro Airport Hotel DFW Airport Marriott South Anaheim Marriott Suites Philadelphia Airport Marriott


The expos will feature a sales education session with Kizer and Bender, popular speakers and meeting planners who were named “Two of Retailing’s Most Influential People.” They routinely share their expertise on generational diversity, consumer trends, marketing and promotion, and the retail business. At the sessions, Kizer & Bender will discuss: reputation management, how to connect with customers who have unlimited choices, how to get in front of customers and stay there, tips on relationship building and how to use business-focused personal social media channels to build clientele and keep customers close.

A supplier partner sponsor panel discussion will be held during each event, along with supplier partner round table discussions to network and learn more about the industry and new products.
