Avoya Travel Announces 2024 Schedule Of Events
Company Curates an Exceptional In-Person and Virtual Event Calendar to Provide Robust Networking and Educational Opportunities for the Avoya Network
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – February 07, 2024 – Avoya Travel®, one of the travel industry’s most innovative brands, recently announced a dynamic calendar of in-person and virtual events slated for 2024. Every event was meticulously crafted with the goal of providing additional opportunities for Independent Agencies in the Avoya Travel Network™ to enhance the success of their businesses by fostering connections throughout the travel industry and utilizing comprehensive educational resources.
This year, Avoya Travel introduced Avoya Regionals, a series of events spanning across the United States that will bring together Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network, supplier partners, and Avoya staff. These immersive two-day events were created to provide additional opportunities for Independent Agencies to engage in interactive discussions, gain valuable industry knowledge, and forge powerful connections. The inaugural Avoya Regional took place in San Diego from February 2-3 and the sold-out event received rave feedback from attendees. The subsequent Avoya Regionals will be held in South Florida, April 14-15; Atlanta, August 9-10; and Texas, October 18-19.
Avoya Travel will also host seven Avoya Socials in 2024, with four accompanying each corresponding Avoya Regional and three additional standalone Avoya Socials in Las Vegas, March 24; Dallas, May 28; and Ft. Lauderdale, July 17, all tied to large industry events. The Avoya Socials were specially crafted to provide Independent Agencies with dedicated time to build and foster relationships through organic interaction, games, food and drinks, and a fun atmosphere. The Avoya Socials will also be open to supplier partners that would like to further experience Avoya’s culture.
Avoya Land Forum
The annual Avoya Land Forum, a headline event geared toward Independent Agencies eager to grow their business selling land vacations, will take place at Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau, Bahamas from June 24-28. The already sold-out event will provide a unique opportunity for Independent Agencies to be introduced to even more land products and strengthen existing relationships with land suppliers while focusing on developing their skills selling land vacations through specialized education.
Million Dollar Showcase
Avoya will host its second annual Million Dollar Showcase in 2024, an invitation-only event offered to top-producing Avoya Network members who generate at least $1 Million in vacation sales during the prior year. After the inaugural event was highly praised by both Independent Agencies and supplier attendees in 2023, the Million Dollar Showcase will once again feature exclusive educational and networking opportunities specifically curated for top-selling Independent Agencies. The Million Dollar Showcase will take place in Florida during the last week of July.
This year, Avoya takes its annual conference to Canada for the first time, sailing from Québec City to New York City onboard the Norwegian Joy from September 25-October 2. The event will bring together both seasoned and new travel advisors for a week of educational opportunities, informative roundtables, one-on-one meetings, exciting announcements from Avoya, and a plethora of networking events to help foster valuable relationships across the travel industry.
Early Success Masterclasses
Avoya will continue its foundational learning series, which was created to help advisors who are new to the travel industry establish a strong foundation for their businesses. The series, introduced in 2023 and rebranded in 2024 as Early Success Masterclasses, will consist of four installments that progressively build off one another by centering on a different educational focus based on the time of year and trajectory of building a successful new travel business. Early Success Masterclasses will be hosted virtually February 23-24, May 18-19, August 23-24, and December 7-8.
Beginning in March, Avoya will begin hosting Destination Days monthly, an all-new series of virtual events designed to educate Independent Agencies on a specific destination and/or travel type. Attendees will have exclusive access to learn from suppliers and tourism boards specializing in 10 different destinations throughout the year, helping them become a true expert in each featured part of the world and the relevant vacation products. Independent Agencies will receive an Avoya passport stamp for each Destination Day they attend, a special destination designation for their participation, and a certificate for passing each Destination Day exam.
“We are very proud to announce such a diverse and elaborate schedule of events for 2024,” said Ashley Hunter, Senior Vice President of Partnerships at Avoya Travel. “Our goal is to empower Independent Agencies in the Avoya Network with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed, while also providing the opportunities for networking and moments of pure fun. We always strive to craft events that promote collaboration through a blend of education and personal interaction among fellow Independent Agencies, supplier partners, and the Avoya staff because this industry is truly built on connection and relationships. 2024 is Avoya’s most comprehensive and dynamic calendar of events to date and the feedback has already been tremendous – it’s going to be a fantastic year!”
