Travel Leaders Group Companies Named U.S. Consortia of the Year and Home-Based Partner of the Year
New York, NY (November 14, 2017) — Two Travel Leaders Group companies were honored by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) as top partners in their respective categories for 2017 “for driving a very successful year” for the cruise brand. Travel Leaders Network was recognized as U.S. Consortia of the Year and Nexion was honored as Home-Based Partner of the Year.
“We appreciate the strong partnership we have with Norwegian Cruise Line and encourage our members to take advantage of the tools NCL offers to agents,” said Roger E. Block, CTC, President of Travel Leaders Network. “In October, NCL hosted 28 of our top-producing agency members onboard the Norwegian Epic for our annual Elite Event, which served as both a reward and an educational opportunity for them. That’s the nature of the relationship we have built.”
Jackie Friedman, CTC, CTIE, President of Nexion, the travel industry’s premier host travel agency, said Norwegian has focused on working with independent travel professionals with sales support and marketing training. “At Nexion, our agents are always striving to gain more product knowledge, market more effectively and sell more cruises and NCL has been a good partner in that effort,” she said. “It’s great to see our efforts are paying off and that NCL is recognizing our Nexion members with this honor.”
“We want to thank Nexion and Travel Leaders Network for their contributions to our success this year,” said Camille Olivere, senior vice president of sales for Norwegian Cruise Line. “Travel agents are at the core of our business and we are pleased to work with the best in the business.”
