This is the second time Fargo’s Cindy Tyo has been honored
ALEXANDRIA, VA (June 15, 2022) – Cindy Tyo of North Dakota’s Travel Travel is the recipient of the prestigious Associate of the Year Award for 2022, honoring the top travel agency among hundreds of Travel Leaders Network Associate Member locations nationwide.
Cindy is an innovator, making great use of all our tools, programs and supplier partners to help grow her business
– Roger E. Block, President of Travel Leaders Network
The award is given to the Travel Leaders Network Associate that best demonstrates excellence in service to clients and effectively represents the Travel Leaders brand. It was presented to Tyo at Travel Leaders Network’s annual EDGE conference, held June 12-15 at the Gaylord Rockies Resort in Aurora, Colorado.
The conference brought together travel advisors and industry partners including airlines, cruise lines, hotels and resorts and tour companies. Participating travel advisors were able to gain insight from industry leaders, network with colleagues and choose from more than a hundred classes.
Established in 1986, Travel Travel is a full-service agency that books a mix of corporate and leisure trips for clients in Fargo-Moorhead and surrounding areas.
“I am so honored by this recognition,” said Tyo, “and I want to share the award with my entire team of travel professionals. We offer a personal touch to all of our clients and pride ourselves on always taking the extra step to meet their needs.”
“Cindy is an innovator, making great use of all our tools, programs and supplier partners to help grow her business,” said Roger E. Block, President of Travel Leaders Network. “She and her team provide exemplary service to their leisure and corporate clients, and we are proud to recognize her as Associate of the Year.”
Tyo was raised in Argyle, Minnesota, and moved to the Fargo/Moorhead area after high school. She realized that travel was her passion by age 19, after working at a hotel and for a travel agency in the area. She lived in Los Angeles for several years before returning to Fargo, first to manage her current agency and then becoming the agency’s owner in 2003.
In expanding her business, Tyo created Corporate Edge, a full-service corporate travel management agency, as well as Vows in Paradise, a division that specializes in destination weddings and honeymoons.
During her many years in the industry Tyo has won numerous accolades from Travel Leaders Network, including Agency of Excellence and Sales Excellence awards, Agent of the Year and the Golden Circle Award. She was also named Associate of the Year in 2016. In 2019, Tyo received the Golden Legacy Award, the highest honor bestowed by Travel Leaders Network.
Tyo has also earned recognition from travel industry suppliers, including Delta Air Lines, Disney, Funjet Vacations, RIU Hotels & Resorts, Sandals Resorts, Princess Cruises and Viking River Cruises, among others.
Travel Travel has received the Travel Leaders Agency of Excellence Award numerous times and this year, it was the top finisher among 16 franchises that were honored.
Each Travel Leaders agency was judged in multiple categories reflecting business growth, including use of Travel Leaders marketing programs, sales growth, especially among key supplier partners, participation in training programs to enhance service to clients, participation in local and national business networking meetings, and overall promotion of the Travel Leaders brand.
