TORTOLA, B.V.I. — The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board (BVITB) proudly announces the launch of the BVI Secrets Revealed Travel Agent Specialist Program, along with its accompanying mobile app and website, www.bvisecretsrevealed.com. This program will connect the travel advisor community to the BVI by offering industry insiders access to exclusive insights and tools that allow clients to discover the unique and exciting aspects of the destination.
The BVI Secrets Revealed Travel Agent Specialist Program features three main areas of content: Destination Discovery, Product Showcase & Supplier Directory, and the Sales Toolbox. The tabs enable professionals to continually discover, re-visit, share, and reinforce their sales knowledge of the BVI, while empowering them to tell the most impactful story possible about the destination. Travel advisors will be able to easily access all the sales collateral they need, including videos, brochures, presentations, top 10 lists, maps, and more. By allowing users to select filters and quickly find properties that will surprise and delight clients, the new mobile app and website are indispensable tools for travel advisors.
After registering and completing a specialist program exam, travel advisors will be able to participate in on-site training and one-on-one webinars with Business Development Managers. As an added bonus, advisors who complete training will be qualified to win a complimentary trip to the BVI in 2017 and beyond. Additionally, a rewards program for travel advisors will kick off in 2017.
