At its annual Curators Celebration in October, Journese celebrated 25 of the best luxury travel advisors with four days of festivities in Los Cabos, Mexico, hosted by One&Only Palmilla. The honored advisors were joined by Journese executives, destination specialists and business development managers, as well as the secretary of tourism from the state of California Baja Sur Tourism and executives from Los Cabos Tourism, the Mexico Tourism Board and Terramar Los Cabos.
“It was a fabulous time, meeting with our top travel advisors and other rainmakers in the travel industry,” said Journese vice president and managing director Kimberly Daley. “This is our way of thanking our partners and showcasing what Journese travelers experience all over the world, and especially in Mexico, from superior butler service to personalized culinary amenities.”
The celebration kicked off at One&Only Palmilla with a fiesta-themed cocktail reception, followed by a party on the beach. Festivities the following night were hosted by Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Hotel and Resort, with a street-fair-themed party that included tequila tastings, henna tattoos and live entertainment. The weekend getaway also included activities such as ATV riding, ziplining and trips to Todos Santos.
In the midst of all the fun, a dynamic focus group was key to the event’s success. During the event, the group discussed luxury travel and the ways in which Journese can best serve travel advisors, as well as the various kinds of travel options in Mexico — including destination weddings and immersive experiences.
