Visit Orlando, the official tourism association for the most visited destination in the United States, launched new interactive sales tools and resources for travel advisors, including a re-designed Orlando Travel Academy.
The Orlando Travel Academy (orlandotravelacademy.com), the destination’s premier training tool, will provide travel advisors with quick and easy access to sales planning resources, including itineraries, a new media gallery and an all-new educational course. This enhancement will educate travel advisors on how to sell the destination, keep clients updated on the latest news and help provide increased value for their customers’ vacation experiences. It is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese as well as a mobile-friendly version.
“We realize how essential updated travel trade tools are in helping travel advisers across the globe increase their sales,” said Visit Orlando President and CEO George Aguel. “Our team is committed to doing everything we can to support our key stakeholders as they continue selling vacation packages to the Theme Park Capital of the World®.”
Upon completion of the program, Orlando Travel Academy graduates receive the designation of “Certified Orlando Expert,” as well as earn four continuing education credits from The Travel Institute, an organization that provides education programs, professional certifications and customized learning solutions for travel professionals, attractions, restaurants and more.
