GIFTE Hosts the Third Annual Travel Entrepreneurship Week

GIFTE is excited to present our 3rd annual Travel Entrepreneurship Week (TEW) to the travel industry community at large. This year’s virtual event will be held June 18th – 22nd on the GIFTE Fan Page and will showcase our Best of the Best content! The content featured on TEW 2018 will be a collection of presentations that have made the most impact on our GIFTE members in the last year. We will share topics ranging from Instagram, Facebook Live, group strategies, success mindset and more. All the presentations are geared towards empowering travel professionals and helping them along their entrepreneurial journey.

GIFTE is committed to shifting the way travel business owners are educated in our industry. The GIFTE team believes that radical change needs to occur in travel agent education in order for our profession to be taken seriously and put back on the radar of the traveling public. Since the seven and a half years since GIFTE was founded, GIFTE has changed hundreds of travel professionals lives through a mindset over strategy approach to education and putting the most relevant client attraction and marketing strategies in front of travel agents consistently.

“My travel business grew over 300% in a one year period after implementing marketing and mindset strategies I learned through my engagement at GIFTE” says Shannon LeBlanc of Paradise Vacation Escapes. “And what is so amazing is to see how many of my fellow travel agents have experienced deep transformations and huge business growth as well.”

TEW is a way to celebrate all the best strategies that are working right now so that travel business owners can feel inspired and re-energized for what is possible in their businesses.

“The presentation during TEW 2018 on A Group Strategy That Actually Works has directly led to an 80k commission check for one travel business owner with a winery in North Carolina” says Vanessa McGovern of GIFTE. “Other GIFTE members have also forged lucrative partnerships using tactics that will be taught in this presentation such as a full ship river cruise charter, a sold out group of 40 on a heritage tour to Scotland within 48 hours and more wine club examples. The revenue opportunity for groups is so impressive and I will share how to effortlessly get that group!”

GIFTE will also showcase travel industry experts Stuart Cohen, Emily Matras and Sandra McLemore. “We are so excited to have Stuart Cohen – industry icon for groups on TEW!” says Meredith Hill, Founder of GIFTE. “And for those that are not already familiar with Emily Matras of Bon Vivant Copy and Sandra Cottam of Village Girl Marketing, you will be very impressed with their fresh perspectives and proven strategies.” Matras will share secrets to writing copy that connects while McLemore will wow attendees with her Instagram knowledge.

Another big and much anticipated topic is undoubtedly Is It Time To Get Your Own IATA? delivered by Jennifer Cochrane, COO of GIFTE. “There is so much misinformation about this topic, and so many business owners leap to this decision blindly and don’t weigh all the important facts,” says Cochrane. “I look forward to sharing the factors to consider so travel business owners can make a more well rounded and strategic decision.”

The 3rd annual Travel Entrepreneurship Week promises to over deliver on content and really make newcomers to this experience re think their approach to their travel businesses. Included in registration is a closed Facebook Forum or rather “Pop Up” group which will create the space for continued conversation and additional presentations by the industry experts… plus a few more unexpected surprises!

All the content for TEW will be available for the registered attendees through June 22nd. After that date, you can join GIFTE membership up until June 30th for $5 for the first month to access the recordings. To become a GIFTE member visit
