We’re so honored to have received the news that OTN has been recognized as the Travel Weekly 2020 Magellan Awards Silver Winner for Travel Agent Organizations – Overall – Travel Agent Innovation for our “Build-A-Plan” program.
The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honor outstanding design, marketing and services in a broad range of industry segments including Hospitality, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Ground Transportation.
We’ve been recognized by Travel Weekly’s Magellan Awards in the past, receiving Silver Awards for our New2Travel program and our Diamond Plan.
“We feel truly privileged to be once again named among the best of the best within the industry,” said Kelly Bergin, President of OASIS Travel Network. “Receiving an accolade such as this during what has been an undoubtedly challenging year is an incredible honor and motivator to continue to help members within our network adapt and thrive.”
The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a one-of-a-kind panel of top travel professionals representing the best names and most accomplished leaders from the industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all.
“Magellan winners are those in the industry who communicate travel’s promise, through words, images and design, in ways that ring true and stand out,” said Arnie Weissmann, editor in chief of Travel Weekly. “They create the environments and craft the messages that spark travelers’ imaginations.”
Our “Build-A-Plan” program provides our members with the necessary tools to operate a successful travel business. Among the many exclusive offerings to better promote a travel advisor’s business are high-tech, branded websites with an integrated hotel and cruise booking engine, best in class email and print marketing through Signature Travel Network, an automatic client booking management system, an associate program to grow business, and value-added perks to help with repeat and referral clients. A mobile application for the client’s itinerary is also included as an added benefit.
We’re looking forward to continuing to making sure our members have the resources to be successful!
