Building on the success of its first VIP travel agent conference in 2015, Jet2holidays has continued to demonstrate its commitment to its agency partners by announcing two VIP conferences on the beautiful island of Cyprus in November and December this year.

The announcement was made by Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays at a special launch event attended by over 50 travel agents on Thursday 25th August in Leeds – where Jet2holidays is based.

The leading package holiday specialist revealed that 120 of its top performing agency partners will be whisked away to the CBH Athena Royal hotel in Cyprus for a two-night conference on December 1st, to recognise and celebrate their achievements over the past 12 months. The conference includes presentations, supplier showcases, a gala dinner, and an awards ceremony to recognise the most successful agents.

Brand new for this year is a second two-night conference at the same hotel, which has been designed for 120 agents who are new to the brand and who want to learn more about how Jet2holidays can help them grow their business. This conference, starting on November 28th, is particularly relevant for travel agents in the Midlands area, ahead of and Jet2holidays launching flights and holidays for the first time from Birmingham Airport in March 2017.

Both events give agency partners the opportunity to learn more about Jet2holidays’ future vision from CEO Steve Heapy, as well as chance to attend seminars from the management team on how to effectively promote and sell package holidays in order to help their own growth and expansion.

Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays, said: “Our agency partners are integral to the ongoing growth and success of our business, accounting for a third of sales. Partnerships with travel agents is a fundamentally important part of our business, which is why we want to recognise the most successful agents as well as those who are new to our brand. Our best performing agents really do deserve this recognition, and it’s great to be able to reward so many new agents by taking them on these special two-night conferences to the beautiful island of Cyprus.”
