Transat Distribution Canada annual meeting will be held August 19–21 in Laval under the theme La petite séduction
Montreal, July 29, 2011
More than 550 travel professionals with the Club Voyages and Voyages en Liberté travel agencies will go into “seduction” mode when they gather at the Sheraton Laval hotel over the August 19–21 weekend for the Transat Distribution Canada (TDC) annual meeting. Under the theme La petite séduction, this meeting will provide all agency owners and managers, as well as travel consultants, within TDC’s Quebec network with an opportunity to exchange views and enhance their knowledge in a entertaining atmosphere.
“To succeed in today’s travel industry, you need to know not only how to advise your customers but also how to ‘seduce’ them by offering them an experience that exceeds their expectations,” says TDC President Yves Lalumière. “That’s why we chose the theme La petite séduction, because it accurately reflects the passion that drives travel professionals every day in their work.”
The activity-filled agenda for the three-day meeting will feature several well-known guests, including motivational speaker Jean-Luc Tremblay and Alain Choquette, a renowned Quebec magician who is also a motivational speaker. There will be numerous topics discussed, among them Web and “à la carte” marketing; the insurance program and the best strategies for selling Transat travel insurance; the luxury cruise program; and Transat’s new visual identity. There will also be the traditional festive side to the meeting: Saturday evening’s La grande seduction event promises to be highly colourful.
Mr. Lalumière adds: “The annual meeting will also be the occasion to talk with our travel agency owners, managers and consultants about the TDC business model and the key attributes that make the network unique and will drive its future growth and success.”
Elsewhere in Canada
TDC is organizing two similar meetings for its agency owners and managers and travel consultants elsewhere in Canada. These conferences, under the theme “We Weren’t Born to Follow,” will be held September 9–11 at the Westin Wall Centre Vancouver Airport and September 16–18 at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel & Conference Centre.
