Top TPI Travel Advisors Honoured at TPI Chairman’s Circle Trip

 

Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s leading network of independent travel advisors and agencies, celebrated the success of its top advisors by hosting them and their guests on The Crystal Esprit Yacht, alongside TPI President, Morris Chia, TPI CEO, Zeina Gedeon, and Marketing Director, Jordana Botting.

 

“The Chairman’s Circle trip is a TPI tradition I very much look forward to, as it is one of the best opportunities for me to connect with our top achievers and recognize their commitment to success” Chia said. “To be able to spend such quality time with TPI’s best of the best – while sailing aboard a yacht in a beautiful part of the world is a treat.”

 

The 7-day ‘West Indies Yachting Explorer’ voyage set sail from St. Martin on April 13, 2018 with ports of call in Moskito Island, Saba, Antigua (where the group was hosted at Sandals Grande Antigua for a special lunch and a day of relaxation), St. Barts, St. Kitts, Tortola and our final leisurely stop in Nevis, where the advisors spent the day at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis.

 

The Crystal Esprit offers an intimate and elegant enclave for up to 62 sophisticated adventurists in all-suite and butler-serviced accommodations. The yacht’s unique size brings guests to the very doorstep of some of the world’s most exclusive shores, allowing for incomparable personalized experiences. The Crystal Esprit is small enough to sail to exotic bucket-list destinations, with a wide range of complimentary excursions and amenities in a very intimate and customized manner. The cuisine is inspired by the flavors of lands explored, delivered through lavish culinary presentations of Michelin-level envy.

 

“We look forward to next year’s Chairman’s Circle trip with a marque event celebrating TPI’s 25th year anniversary” Chia said. “Stay tuned, we will be announcing details of the trip shortly”.
