All the Travel You Can sell

Welcome to the new TravelAge West

By: Duke Anderson

I am thrilled to welcome you to the new TravelAge West. Beginning with this issue, we are re-creating TravelAge West to focus more completely on the issues and opportunities of selling travel products. While maintaining our dedication to quality editorial content, the staff at TravelAge West launches a new design and approach to delivering the critical information agents need to become better salespeople of travel products.

As you have most certainly noticed, TravelAge West will now be printed at a tabloid size. This format will allow us to provide you with a stronger, more compelling package as well as a much bolder design. TravelAge West will also be published bi-weekly. This allows our staff the time necessary to prepare the quality information that the travel industry needs. To achieve this end, Theresa Norton Masek (formerly Cruise Editor) has been appointed Executive Editor. She will be ably assisted by Kenneth Shapiro, Destinations Editor.

This dynamic transformation would not be complete without you. We look forward to industry contributions to create a community of interests. It is important for us here at TravelAge West to provide you with information that will help you sell your products. Please feel free to contact me at and let me know what you think.

Welcome to our new TravelAge West!
