Tauck invites agents to UK roadshow series

US-based operator Tauck is inviting UK travel agents to educational events being held in England in the autumn.

The Tauck On Tour series will visit Bristol, London, Sutton Coldfield, Manchester and Harrogate in September.

During the half-day sessions, Tauck will share resources aimed at growing agents’ sales and it will also highlight new product details, emerging trends and company updates.

Tom Dumbrell, Tauck’s national sales manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “As we increase our presence in the UK and grow our community of advisors, it’s important that we provide them not only with information about our products, but also with the tools they need to sell those products.”

He said it was equally important for Tauck to highlight how “profitable” it was for agents to sell the operator’s trips, adding: “Not only do we pay generous commissions, but we’re a truly all-inclusive brand that commands a premium price.”

The autumn events, which will be limited to 30 guests each, follow the operator’s drive over the last few years to increase its visibility in the UK.

Dumbrell will co-present the sessions alongside two US-based colleagues – sales and marketing director Shauna Sullivan Reilly and trade marketing and education senior manager Lora Schapiro.

Lunch and light refreshments will be served at the events, with London to host two sessions.

Dumbrell said agents should register as soon as possible because of the attendance limits. His email address is: tdumbrell@tauck.com

Tauck, founded in 1925, offers more than 150 land tours, safaris, river cruises and small ship ocean cruises to over 70 countries and all seven continents.
