Travel Agent Newsletter December 2016

December 14, 2016

News from Andy's Desk!

Dear Travel Partners,

It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of another year.

2016 was an extremely busy year for us at SNG.  We recently attended the annual conference for Cruises Inc./Dream Vacations/CruiseOne aboard the Carnival Vista.  We also attended our first USTOA Annual Conference and Marketplace in Scottsdale, Arizona as well as the first Signature Travel Network Sales Meeting at the Mandalay Bay Las Vegas.    

In total for the year, SNG attended 40 travel agent events/trade shows and hosted 19 webinars.  We are grateful for you taking the time to visit with us at these events and joining us for the webinars. 

We are thoroughly looking forward to 2017 and another spectacular year as we continue exploring new opportunities for delivering an accessible world.

Wishing you and your family a safe and Happy Holiday Season and the best for a healthy and prosperous New Year!

Thank you for your continued support.

Keep Smilin',

 

Andrew J. Garnett, CATA
President/CEO

Spotlight: Tampa

Port Tampa Bay, referred to as “Big Guava,” is one of the premier cruise port destinations in the South.  Just a short distance from Tampa International Airport, one of the nation’s top-rated airports, as well as having an excellent interstate highway system, the city provides those sailing into and out of the port in Tampa convenience and accessibility.  Big Guava offers an enjoyable destination to explore prior to or following one’s cruise.
