Travel Professionals International (TPI) wrapped up their regional reunion tour last week after visiting their advisors in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland & Labrador, reuniting with more than 300 TPI travel advisors at each of the gatherings.

"Working from home as an independent travel advisor can be lonely at times, and certainly over the past 18 odd months, we've recognized that feeling has been amplified as advisors had to navigate their business through these troubling times. We've all missed face-to-face connections and while TPI has been in constant communication with daily, weekly network calls, nothing replaces in-person interaction, so we decided it was time to get out and see our advisors "in-person" said Zeina Gedeon, CEO of TPI.

"Typically, during our TPI cross country roadshows, we engage in business sessions, participate in supplier training and have a very structured agenda. However, this reunion tour was  about connecting! we didn't have any PowerPoint presentations, or any suppliers at the gatherings, it was all about reuniting the TPI family and it was pretty amazing!"

TPI's event schedule is filling up with their fall consumer virtual nights, which started on Sept. 1 and takes place every Wednesday at 7 p.m. EST.
