TPI’s 2018 Velocity Trip

TORONTO, CANADA – Travel Professionals International (TPI), a Virtuoso member and Canada’s leading network of independent travel advisors and agencies, held its annual TPI Velocity Trip at Secrets SilverSands.

 

Unique to TPI advisors, the industry leading and exclusive Velocity rewards program is designed to recognize and incentivize advisors.  The TPI Velocity program allows advisors to build their business through increased revenue and they are rewarded with incentives such as higher commissions and dollars that can be used for their own travel. Along with other perks and their annual Velocity trip for advisors and guests, it is a true sales incentive program.

Kelly Klassen a Platinum Level Advisor from Saskatchewan said “This was my first Velocity Trip with TPI and I loved every minute! I set out to crush some huge goals this year and I succeeded! TPI rewards its top earners with amazing trips that are fantastic for networking with other agents as well as some of the wonderful head office team who support us day in and day out. I can’t wait to see where the next TPI Velocity Trip will take us”

“These reward trips allow us all to have one on one time together while also allowing fellow advisors from across the country to learn and get to know each other better while reinforcing the strength of our network between TPI and our advisor.  I always look forward to connecting with  TPI advisors and getting feedback to ensure that our organization remains focused and relevant to the continued success of our advisors” said Morris Chia, Chairman

Carlo Trinidad, Business Development Manager AMResorts also joined the trip, “This year’s TPI Velocity trip solidified AMResorts’ strong partnership with TPI. It was a great opportunity to host the agents alongside the TPI team and together we continue to build initiatives to strengthen our business.”

The TPI Velocity Rewards program has paid out over $190,000 YTD  to their advisors.
