Hear what the industry has to say about us! True stories from our sister event, the Romance Travel Forum
Thank you so much for everything. This event was by far the very best event I have attended. It was organized, the communication was perfect (not too much, not too little), the attendees were knowledgeable, successful agents, the vendors were awesome. I really can’t rave enough about the event from beginning to end. Thank you!
It was a great week and most of all a success. I was able to refresh agents of our product in Jamaica and also convince those who did not know of our brand or heard of it and had no idea what we were about and that was an accomplishment.
In the 13 years I have been in the travel business, this was the BEST conference I have ever attended. It was perfectly organized and fun at the same time. What I loved about this conference was the focus and dedication to learning from both from the agents & the suppliers. Also, it was brilliant to allow the suppliers to attend the social events to further solidify the bond. Congrats to the TSMG Team on this highly successful inaugural conference!
The team has outdid themselves – Wonderful Forum
I wanted to just say thank you to to the TSMG Team for organizing such an amazing event! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to come and share these new experiences with you on this trip. Everyone I met was so welcoming and full of knowledge they were eager to share. Thank you everyone it was great meeting all of you!! A big thanks to the Royalton Cancun for hosting such a fabulous event! The rooms, food and service was excellent!! I met some amazing new friends
The FTAF team did a great job or organizing this conference. I appreciated the opportunity to meet new suppliers, learn and network in this perfect size group of my peers.
The Family Travel Advisor Forum is a must for anyone who sells to families or multigenerational group. Very well organized, amazing vendors, and great peer to peer sessions. Absolutely the best overall experience to grow your business.
Thank you to the Event team for tirelessly organizing the Family Travel Advisor Forum. The experience you gave us was incredible. To my new friends – you are a true inspiration! To the vendors – wow, just wow – thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and passion for your services! I am truly inspired to bring North Dakotans to experience everything I learned. To the Royalton, thank you so much for your hospitality and giving us the opportunity to live like ROYALty for our time in Mexico. There is no way I could possible narrow it down to my top 5 favorite experiences – the Family Travel Advisor Forum team just did too good of a job lining up our itinerary. Currently I am taking advantage of the post fam opportunity at the Grand Velas – pinch me, I feel like a princess! Thank you again so much for accepting my agency to partake in this incredible experience. #lovemyjob
Dear TSMG team-thank you so much for an amazing experience. I know the other “old timers” will agree-it isn’t often we find an event from which we can actually get some new ideas and perspectives. You did an amazing job vetting the attendees, the moderators and the suppliers. To everyone in my peer to peer group-you were terrific! Thanks for forgiving me for my graphic language moment. The Royalton was a terrific host. Everyone and everything was first class. I very much appreciate being asked to participate and offer my sincere thanks.
Thank you to the organizers for this great conference. It was great to meet all the suppliers face to face. The peer to peer sessions were phenomenal and very educational. I learned so much from my fellow agents….but then again, we did have the BEST group though…just sayin’. Thank you also for organizing the site inspections, and for all the events hosted by #theroyaltoncancun and #palaceresorts. #FamilyTravelAdvisorForum 2016 rocked!!
