Antigua-Barbuda launches new education course on Travel Agent University
Published on April 6, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

NEW YORK, USA -- Antigua and Barbuda has announced the launch of its new agent specialist course on the premiere e-learning platform, Travel Agent University (TAU). TAU, with 45,000 plus active members, is the industry's largest online travel agent community, having graduated more specialists than any other industry education program, awarding over one million diplomas since inception.

The new course is an asset to the travel agent community, as graduates will see an increase in their bookings and be eligible to participate in various reward opportunities with the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority (ABTA).

"We are very excited to partner with Travel Agent University, the travel agent's preferred e-learning platform. The TAU specialist program is the ideal platform to showcase the many activities and special features that our destination has to offer. Antigua and Barbuda is the perfect destination for romantic getaways including destination weddings, honeymoons, and vow renewals as well as multi-gen groups, girls and guys getaways and adventure seekers. By becoming a specialist, agents can become eligible for FAM trips and experience firsthand why Antigua and Barbuda is the best destination in the Caribbean," said ABTA, director of tourism, US, Kim Jack Riley.

Kimberly Newbury, Questex Travel Group managing director of e-learning and loyalty, said TAU is thrilled to partner with a brand that truly sees the value of agent training and specialization. "The Questex Travel Group has been deeply invested in travel agent education for more than 23 years, and has proved time and again that agents who specialize are seven times more likely to sell a supplier's products, than a non-specialist."

Launched in 1993, Travel Agent University is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The e-learning site's resource center provides access to valuable sales tools, webinars, videos, itineraries and other assets designed to help agents increase sales after they graduate. Agents also can utilize a central dashboard to review their course activity, track the status of their progress and access rewards, including gift cards, bonus commissions, familiarization trips and monthly giveaways.
