New and Enhanced
Meeting Format Designed To Further Engage, Support and Build Business with
Line's Valued Travel Agent Partners
(Feb. 28, 2018) - Carnival Cruise Line kicked off its 2018 Carnival
Conversations travel agent engagement program in San Antonio, Texas yesterday.
Seven Carnival Conversations events featuring a panel of Carnival executives
are planned through November 2018.
Carnival is introducing an enhanced Carnival Conversations format designed to
offer more targeted training for agents as well as roundtable discussions to
gather feedback from agents on how the line can provide the best sales and
service to partners. Each event will feature a panel discussion with Carnival
executives on sales and marketing techniques highlighting technology, group
sales, social media, as well as general marketing and business acquisition. At
the conclusion of each general session, agents will be assigned to smaller
roundtable breakout sessions of up to 10 people to discuss topics more in-depth
and garner feedback with Carnival sales team members.
"In creating our new series of Carnival Conversations events, we worked closely
with agents in developing a format that would maximize their training and
development and give them tools they could implement immediately after the
event," said Carnival's Senior Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing
Adolfo Perez. "This program is richer in content than ever before and is
designed to supplement the hundreds of additional field trainings we offer
throughout the year."
The next Carnival Conversations event will be held today in Austin, Texas.
Additional events are scheduled in Boston, Massachusetts; Miami, Florida;
Toronto, Ontario; Orlando, Florida and Providence, Rhode Island.
may register to participate through Carnival Passport, located within the
line's travel agent web site GoCCL.com. Travel agents may view a full list of Carnival
Conversations trainings and events on Carnival Passport, as well.
