Building a Travel Agent Toolbox at Boot Camp
Written by: Michelle on March 14, 2022
Developing your skills, making new friends, and investing in yourself – those are hallmarks of KHM Travel Group’s popular Boot Camp events. After months of planning and a refreshed schedule, our Boot Camp made a successful return to its in-person format in late February.
Keep reading to see what this new class of Boot Camp graduates experienced during our most recent event.
So much has changed in the industry since the pandemic, but people are ready to travel again. Our attendees came to Boot Camp ready to dive in and learn how to work with clients and secure bookings.
Sessions at Boot Camp cover:
- Successful Supplier Selection
- Hands-on Cruise and Land Booking Scenarios
- Top U.S. Destinations
- Digital Authorizations
- The All-Inclusive Market
- The Value of a Travel Agent
- Our very own version of Agent Jeopardy!
KHM Travel Agents have a variety of resources to help them do their jobs with ease and confidence. At the end of the week, each attendee went home with a toolbox tailored to their unique business needs.
“Boot Camp is the jumpstart you need for your travel business – you’ll meet other great agents and walk away with a WEALTH of knowledge for making bookings and providing great service to your clientele.”– Meredith T.
Our supplier partners are a huge part of the success of our in-person events. They come willing to share the latest updates on their brands, plus add to the excitement and fun of Boot Camp! Agents were able to hear directly from suppliers about techniques for making the most of an industry event. Then, they were able to practice their skills by meeting each supplier in a trade show format.
“The amount of knowledge obtained in 4 short days is beyond belief. I highly recommend anyone new or seasoned to go to Boot Camp because there is so much to learn!”– Sh’nee S
Whether asking your question during our Education Team panel or pulling a supplier aside for one-on-one guidance, there’s always time for hands-on learning.
Our team loves getting to chat with agents in a more casual setting. Networking is key for all travel professionals looking to gain new clients.
“If you do one thing for yourself and your business this year, attend Boot Camp. As nervous as I was to attend, it not only strengthened my knowledge, but gave me a sense of being part of a large family. The KHM family. The connections with the other agents and those from KHM were much more than I expected. The information from the education team was exactly what I needed. I also enjoyed the suppliers presentations. Knowledge is power and I now feel powerful as a travel agent to provide the services needed for my clients to take my travel business to the next level.”– Valerie N.
