Cruise Planners hosts first of four nationwide Boot Camps for travel advisors to deepen their industry knowledge
Boot Camps aren’t just for the military and exercise groups– they’re also for Cruise Planners travel advisors who want to strengthen their sales and technology skills in the industry.
Every year, Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, hosts a series of live, in-person events across the country to travel advisors that includes supplier presentations, network opportunities and additional information on technology systems within the network.
“There is no travel company that focuses more on staying at the top of their field in technology, supplier products and sales techniques as Cruise Planners,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and Founder. “Boot Camps are a great way for our agents around the country to further their education in just a few days.”
This year, the boot camps will be held in Las Vegas, Orlando, Connecticut and Dallas.
The Boot Camps are an extension of the ongoing training that Cruise Planners offers and gives attendees the chance to learn from Cruise Planners Home Office Team to grow their business. Boot Camps will focus on sales training, social media programs, business analytics and technology workshops with results-oriented action items.
Travel agents will also be able to:
• Meet with top executives and travel industry suppliers
• Delve deeper into Cruise Planners’ proprietary technology
• Network and engage with key industry professionals
• Absorb and learn best practices from Cruise Planners’ top producers
Boot Camps also offer franchisees the opportunity to meet with representatives from major travel and destination partners such as: Israel, Hawaii, Princess Cruises, Virgin Voyages, Exoticca, Norwegian Cruise Line, Azamara, Allianz, Scenic, AmaWaterways, Ponant and Scenic just to name a few. There will be over 25 supplier partners in attendance.
“There’s no way you can learn all things, but the more you engage and attend events such as these Boot Camps, the more you add to your arsenal of knowledge that will help propel your business,” said Fee. “Plus, it’s fun! We make sure these events are informative and infused with our signature Cruisitude®.”

• April 4-6, 2022 Connecticut
