3. SPOTTED… talking luxury & experiential travel


With a commitment to personal development and training highly evident, TravelManagers recently combined corporate training with a luxury and experiential focused workshop with the view to further equip its PTMs to benefit from the current increase in bleisure travel.

Ensemble Travel Group, TravelManagers’ North American-based partner supplier with a wide portfolio of global luxury and experiential travel products including adventure activities and customised cultural vacations, was invited to jointly conduct PTM workshops across Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.

“A consequence of being a part of an enhanced global presence, our PTMs now have access to an increased range of luxury resorts villas and apartments, hosted cruise options, on-location destination management companies and unique specialty programmes around the world. We have the opportunity to leverage benefits achieved through higher sales volumes so it’s a real win-win for clients and PTMs,” says Michael Gazal, TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager.

With such overwhelming positive feedback from the inaugural workshops, TravelManagers is already in conversations with plans for further Ensemble workshops in 2018.
