Happy May from everyone at Pax Global Media! This month, we celebrate travel agents as part of Travel Agent Month, as well as the arrival of our May 2020 issue.
May begins on a somber note as the travel industry mourns the loss of Patrick Luciani, the founder and chairman of TravelOnly, who sadly passed away on April 26th.
Patrick was an inspiration to many in our industry, and to honour his legacy, we have memorialized him on the cover of our May issue.
We hope the outpour of industry support in this heartfelt feature written by PAX's Michael Pihach and Blake Wolfe offers comfort during this difficult time.
Photographer Matt Manhire's elegant images of the Luciani family for May's feature story were shot two months before Patrick's passing. We look forward to sharing with you all the images from that special day along with a behind-the-scenes video we shot that captured all the magic.
Our May issue also celebrates Travel Agent Month 2020, and in the spirit of helping one another, we asked nine travel experts to share their advice on how to sell something new and niche. We hope these professional tips help you as you prepare for the re-opening of the travel economy.
Other features this month include a look at ways that travel agents can use nostalgia to boost business, an escape to Egypt and Jordan with Insight Vacations, a round-up of the latest golf vacations, a delicious summary of the tastiest cruise cuisine at sea, and much more.
From all of us at PAX, happy reading!
