GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO (Sun Oct 16, 2016) — Host travel agency Andavo Travel celebrated the tenth anniversary of its annual AndavoMart event with a record 109 attendees, held at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving, TX from October 14-16, 2016.
Fifty-nine travel advisors and Andavo employees from 11 states traveled to Dallas, TX for the opportunity to network and receive one-on-one training from 50 of the world’s leading luxury travel suppliers including Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Virtuoso, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Classic Vacations, Belmond, Ritz Carlton Hotels and Resorts, and approximately 45 more.
“With each AndavoMart, we try to raise the bar and this event in Dallas was no exception. Seeing our travel advisors be trained by industry experts and form relationships with each other, our key travel vendors, and the core Andavo support staff inspires us to keep offering our hosted agents more ways to grow their businesses,” said Mike Cameron, CEO of Andavo Travel.
This year’s AndavoMart included an Advisory Council meeting, Smart Bar small-group training sessions, vendor-hosted meals/breaks, plus site inspections of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas and The Joule, Dallas. Additional agenda items included educational presentations, peer networking opportunities, an expanded vendor fair, and even the chance to enjoy a private VIP tour and dinner at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
“My favorite part of AndavoMart is getting the Andavo family together, putting faces to new names in our network, and renewing relationships with our longer-term advisors. Plus it is exciting to see firsthand how motivated and dedicated our travel advisors are to succeeding,” said Kirsten Little, General Manager of Andavo Travel.
