Travel Professionals International (TPI), now called Trevello, kicked off Travel Agent Day on Wednesday (May 4) with a bang at Majestic Elegance Costa Mujeres in Cancun, Mexico, where the host agency is currently holding its 2022 national conference.

As the team and some 35 suppliers greeted attendees with clapping hands, cheers, whistles and high fives at the entrance of the property’s conference centre, staff at the resort handed out vibrant-orange bird of paradise flowers, bringing smiles to agents’ faces.

The lively conference, called “Unlock Your Future” – the first in-person symposium the company has held since 2019 – runs until May 6, and the dates were purposely chosen to include Travel Agent Day (May 4), an annual day of recognition (also called Travel Advisor Day) that takes place on the first Wednesday of May.

“For years and years, we have celebrated travel advisor day,” said Caroline Hay, national director of sales at TPI, which recently announced that it will be rebranding as Trevello Travel Group. “But after the last two years, it was beautifully pointed to gather [in person] with our travel advisors and celebrate this incredible day.”

“This day is all about you, but the reality for [Trevello] is that every day is all about you.”

Zeina Gedeon, company CEO, echoed those remarks, telling agents that “we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.”  

“Thank you for everything that you do for us,” Gedeon said.
