WhatForty travel agencies across Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia recently joined Travel Leaders Network (TLN) — North America’s largest travel agency organization — which brings the company’s agency representation to nearly 50 countries.
Why It MattersTLN’s aggressive expansion plan does more than extend its corporate reach — it also provides agencies access to a unified set of resources, including a network of preferred suppliers, educational tools, marketing programs and technology. And it’s a great way for domestic agencies to foster relationships with some of the biggest international players.
Fast Facts- New members will have access to the network’s suite of resources.
- TLN plans to sign one exclusive Travel Leaders representative in key countries around the globe.
- Before the addition of 40 new international members, TLN had six international agencies based in Bahrain, India, Ireland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
What They Are Saying“We are creating a network of agencies that will serve as connective tissue enabling us to respond to larger opportunities both regionally and internationally,” said Roger E. Block, president of Travel Leaders Network. “These agencies, now backed by the scale, technology and tools available through Travel Leaders, are positioned to provide an even more customized, personalized and superior level of service to existing and new clients within their respective geographies.”
“This expansion program is transforming both Travel Leaders Network and Travel Leaders Corporate into more robust international players with stronger abilities and reach enabling true multinational account management based upon a highly personalized service model on an international scale,” said Gabe Rizzi, president of Travel Leaders Corporate. “Clients will be serviced by local agencies who are leaders in their markets providing premium corporate travel services supported by a vast array of technology. These innovative agencies are now backed by one of the largest travel agency networks in the world. We’re not a call center operation and neither are they. That’s our sweet spot and our competitive difference.”
