Travel Impressions has announced the launch of the TI Ambassadors Program, in which 96 dedicated travel agents will receive extensive support to become advocates for eight of Travel Impressions’ leading resort and destination partners. The yearlong program involves specific responsibilities for agents during one month, beginning in September.

The eight strategic hotel and destination program partners are: The All-Inclusive Hard Rock Hotels; AMResorts; Atlantis, Paradise Island; Cancun, Mexico; Excellence Group Luxury Hotels & Resorts; Palace Resorts and Le Blanc Spa Resort; Sandals & Beaches Resorts; and The Island of Aruba.

According to Steve Gorga, president and CEO of Travel Impressions, the company will guide the chosen ambassadors on ways to optimize new social media tools. Agents will also receive support on innovative promotions generating public relations efforts and creating buzz to drive business. Each travel agent will be awarded a five-night stay with the partner they have been selected to represent. Ambassadors’ customers will receive a $100 Travel Impressions future travel credit, and the ambassadors have a yearlong $50 bonus for bookings made to their destination partner. The deadline to apply is July 31. www.travimp.com/tiambassadors
