Journese salutes top-producing travel advisors at the 2014 Curators Celebration at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui

Key to the event was a dynamic focus group discussing fine travel, affluent travelers evolving expectations, and how Journese can best serve travel advisors.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIF. – Saluting their excellence, Journese honored twenty-five luxury travel advisors at the annual Curators Celebration, held at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands Oct. 17 – 20, 2014. They were joined by Senior Vice President Sales Strategy Kimberly Daley, as well as Destination Specialists and Business Development Managers.  

The exclusive getaway began with a beautiful welcome cocktail reception at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui where travel advisors were welcomed by keikis adorning them with leis and a hula dance. The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui’s General Manager, Charles Head, and his team graciously kicked off the festivities that night with dinner from Ko and exceptional entertainment.

Key to the event was a dynamic focus group discussing fine travel, affluent travelers evolving expectations, and how Journese can best serve travel advisors. Paramount to that is the increase in lifestyle choices as part of the travel experience, including immersive experiences, ancillary value-added perks, themed travel including destination weddings and exemplary service levels. Advisors also enjoyed complimentary experiences including spa treatments at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui’s Willow Stream Spa, a lavender farm tour, and a site inspection of the Montage Kapalua Bay with lunch included. Saturday evening, guests delighted in an exclusive dinner at Andaz Maui at Wailea, hosted in Ka’ana Kitchen, the intimate cooking demonstration kitchen and event room. The celebratory weekend at The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui ended with a Curators Celebration Farewell awards dinner.  

“This was an incredible event to recognize Journese’ top travel advisors’ exceptional sales in 2014 and exchange ideas on best practices in travel as well as ways we can further differentiate ourselves in the industry,” says Kimberly Daley, Senior Vice President Sales Strategy. “We greatly appreciate all our advisors’ partnership and thank them in celebrating what Journese travelers experience the world over, especially in the Aloha Spirit of the Hawaiian Islands, celebrated at one of our key partners, The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui’s incredible resort.”

Comprised entirely of luxurious suites and two-story villas with private courtyards and plunge pools, The Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui is situated on beautiful Polo Beach and 22 acres of heavenly tropical landscapes. Featuring a 9,000 square-foot Willow Stream Spa, exquisite amenities and signature service, guests enjoy flavorful gastronomy at award-winning restaurant Ko and discovered the Aloha Spirit with Hawaiian canoe experiences, cultural excursions and storytelling.

Additional partners included Alaska Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines that flew many advisors in style to the event, as well as Avis Rental Car and The Parking Spot.
