Hear what the industry has to say about us! True stories from our sister event, the Romance Travel 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
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!!
Thank you to all of the Family Travel Advisor Forum team. I had great appointments, met some new vendors, learned a boatload. You all worked so hard to put it together perfectly I cannot wait to see what is next! !!! Safe travels home to get ready for the next one.
This event is one of the best I have participated in within my 20+ years. The agents are serious to partner with the suppliers they want to work with in addition to their willingness to meet during free time shows the level of commitment. Not every agent is a perfect match to every supplier, although the meeting selection process has impressed me to continue our participation. Another well done event that has proven increase of business and preferred status for BellaVista Tours. Thank you all!!
‘Thank you soooo much for the opportunity to attend this event! It was a true pleasure to be around travel professionals with the same passion for bringing families together through travel! Thank you all for sharing your opinions, successes and insights. Many new friends made 🙂 Thank you to the TSMG team for organizing the event and the Royalton for being my home the last few days. Safe Travels and much success to all!
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 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
The event was the perfect combination of work and leisure. The agents we met were very interested on the product and we are willing to work with all of them
The Family Travel Advisor Forum 2016 was a top notch conference with great management and organization. I especially appreciate lots of quality Networking time, superior (many of which I had never met prior to this event) one on one supplier meetings, very interesting & productive peer to peer sessions, and fun evening events. MUCHO GRACIAS to the TSMG team for all they did to help us grow our business!!!
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.
