Vacation.com continues to bring members and Preferred Suppliers together at its exclusive Owners and Managers Mixers.

With a total of 23 venues scheduled for the remainder of 2016, mixers have been successfully taking place each month across Canada, allowing top suppliers the opportunity to personally interact with owners and managers. These mixers are free of charge to members.

Hosted by Vacation.com BDMs in eastern and western Canada, monthly mixers are held at highly-acclaimed venues located in each region and offer an invaluable networking experience between members and Preferred Suppliers. 

“Vacation.com continues to keep members inspired while increasing their knowledge base through ongoing educational sessions and our monthly Canada-wide mixers. It’s through these exceptional educational events that our members are able to learn from Vacation.com leadership, our supplier partners and from each other,” said Vacation.com vice president Canada, Christine James.

“Members are always looking for more ways to increase their bottom line and grow. We encourage them to continue educating themselves by taking advantage of Vacation.com’s numerous training opportunities throughout the year, particularly our monthly mixers.”

Each event starts off with an informal mini-trade show and cocktail hour that allows time for face-to-face interaction and business-building opportunities. Followed by dinner, the suppliers deliver a brief overview of revenue-generating promotions and offers that are available to the members. These small and intimate settings attract approximately 40 attendees, allowing each person the opportunity to actively participate.  Here is the remaining schedule for 2016:

“Vacation.com mixers have long provided a platform for like minded business owners to gather together in a casual environment where socializing and learning have been able to seamlessly intersect,” said Dave Heron from Pace Setter Travel & Tours in Alberta.

“Whenever 60-plus agency owner/managers can assemble over dinner with six to eight key suppliers, the opportunities to share quality time are vastly superior to those offered at the larger venues where there's barely time for a quick hello. Some long standing relationships that continue to this day, started out nine years ago at the very first mixers and this is more than worth our Vacation.com membership.”
