Hard-hitting topics and real tips at TTG Travel Agent Conference

The first regional travel agent conference will field hard-hitting topics such as Can you handle the truth?, Can you handle online? and the satirical How to lose clients and win complaints – a critical examination of what travel agents must do to remain relevant in today’s marketplace. It will also be packed with practical How-To’s, in line with its objective of ensuring agents will walk away with learning points they can immediately apply to business. These topics include How to retail travel today, How to buy travel today, How to achieve customer service excellence and How to customise travel.

Speakers as of August 4 include keynoter Hans Lerch, CEO of Hotelplan Switzerland, who will paint a macro picture of the future of the travel agency business; Martin Symes, CEO of WEGO, who will guide agents on how they can make money from online; Hui-Wan Chua, senior regional director Asia, Travelport, who will show agents how to be effective in travel retailing; and Charee Guico, manager Travel Agent Distribution, South-east Asia, Expedia, who will explain agents can buy travel more effectively in today’s world of multi-channels.

Arthur Kiong, managing director hotel operations Asia-Pacific, and senior vice president group marketing services, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, will show how customers are changing and the key areas agents need to reboot in order to service more sophisticated, demanding and empowered clients today. Yet another session will give agents insights into how new dream merchants, such as John Sutherland, CEO Dreamscape Journeys, who sells space travel, get their ideas for unique travel experiences and how they get the clients to buy these ideas.

TTG Travel Agent Conference, a collaboration between TTG Asia Media and ITB Asia, will be held on October 21, 2011, 9am-12pm, at Suntec Singapore Ballroom 1.
