‘Why Use a Travel Advisor’ parties give advisors face-to-face time with the line’s sales team and help them reinforce their value with consumers.
Today’s wellness traveler is looking for more than just a spa treatment or an available gym, but wants more of a holistic approach that integrates body, mind, and spirit.
Ann Chamberlin, who was serving as Senior Vice President of Membership & Strategic Partnerships and President for the ASTA Small Business Network, will join Scenic as Vice President of Sales.
Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold have announced the appointment of a new vice president of sales, Kristina Miranda.
Miranda has been promoted from her previous role as director of national and key accounts. One of her main responsibilities as director of national and key accounts was to grow and develop Insight and Luxury Gold’s new preferred relationship with Virtuoso.
“We are very excited to promote Kristina to the role of vice president. She brings a stellar reputation in the industry in the premium and luxury travel space,” said Jon Grutzner, president of Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold USA.
Prior to her role at Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, Kristina spent five and a half years at AmaWaterways as director of national accounts. And before that, she was group specialist/account manager and a river cruise specialist.
In her new role, Kristina will manage all aspects of national accounts for Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold. She will continue to manage business strategies, grow relationships, inspire the sales team, and develop new business.
“She possesses both strong analytical skills and a friendly personality that will serve her well in this leadership role,” said Grutzner. “We believe both our travel partners and sales team will benefit having her in the elevated role.”
"Most people do want to experience new things. There is a small percentage, maybe 10%-15%, who always want to do the same thing: Either return to the same all-inclusive or take the same cruise line to the same Caribbean islands."
