"Every year our agents learn something new. The face time with fellow agents and suppliers offers agents a way to get to know their business partners, in a comfortable setting" stated Jennifer Dugan.
LOS ALAMOS, NM, January 29, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dugan's Travels has separated itself from other host agencies through Dugan's University. With the expansion of this program over the years, Dugan's Travels is attracting more experienced agents as well as agents new to the travel industry. "Every year our agents learn something new. The face time with fellow agents and suppliers offers agents a way to get to know their business partners, in a comfortable setting," stated Jennifer Dugan.
The three-member Dugan's U Team, Shari Speer, Virginia Busceme, and Carolyn Orf, work hard to develop programing for agents that is valuable, cost effective, and comprehensive. Dugan's is proud to be on the short list of host agencies that offer formal agent development opportunities outside of new agent orientation.
Dugan's University is comprised of 2-3 annual agent events. Each event offers something different to agents and it is not unheard of for an agent to attend all in a year. In 2018, agents will be meeting in Anaheim, New Orleans, and a seminar at sea.
The cornerstone event in Anaheim is celebrating its 12th year in February 2018. It is just short of a week and includes more than 20 supplier presentations and typically 2 ship inspections. This seminar focuses on product updates, relationship building, and an overall opportunity for experienced and new agents to come together to grow their business. With a 98% return rate from suppliers who want to present every year, travel suppliers find value in attending this event as it is their opportunity to share their product and develop relationships with our agents. Attendance at this event has proven to increase an agent's productivity.
Dugan's U Travels to will be New Orleans, Louisiana in September 2018. The location for this event changes each year. This is a shorter educational opportunity similar to Anaheim.
With these agent development opportunities along with reasonable start-up fees inclusive of agent development, support fees, and errors and omission insurance, Dugan's is the place to be for experienced and new agents looking for a place to start their travel business.
Dugan's Travels is well-respected with travel suppliers and provides valuable travel resources for agents. Dugan's is a member of IATAN, ARC, and CLIA and is a President's Circle member of Travel Leaders Network.
With the right kind of organization and support, agents can do very well in the travel business. By joining the Dugan's Travels family, new and experienced travel agents alike can succeed and thrive.
