TMR Launches People Page

TMR Launches People Page


Did you notice anything new about Travel Market Report’s home page today? We are excited to announce that our column of section tabs across the top of the page has a new member: a People section, dedicated just to you. 

We know that everyone loves to read about what’s happening at a personal level, who is where and doing what—and so we added a page all about you, our travel agent readers.  

It has pictures of your friends (and hopefully, of you!), an industry calendar of events, a list of job opportunities and a highlighted Dream Job of the Week. And there’s the people-oriented news that may not be exactly front-page worthy, but that we all want to read nonetheless. 

We hope you’ll help us out by sending us photos of the events you host or attend – just email them along, and be sure to include a sentence identifying who is in the photo and where it was taken. 

As always, we’re interested in hearing what you think, and any ideas for how we can improve it or make it more useful. We always hope to be the voice—and the eyes and ears—of the travel agent channel, and to make our site a one-stop-shop for everything you need to make your business as successful as it can possibly be. Email me any time, crosen@travelmarketreport.com.
