Travel Impressions Hosts Final – Best of the Best – Rewards Event in Punta Mita
Travel Impressions held its 25th,
and final, Best of the Best (BOB) travel advisor rewards trip, hosting approximately 200 consortia, host, owners, managers and guests, along with 27 supplier partners. Travel Impressions is ALG Vacations’ (ALGV) agent-only, luxury brand that sells high-end vacations to the most discerning travel agents and clients. Qualifying agents for this event produce at least $750K in sales with Travel Impressions, and Globe Winners start at $2M. 2021’s BOB was hosted at Secrets Bahia Mita Surf &Spa Resort and Dreams Bahia Mita Surf Spa Resort.
In 2022, agency status accumulation will be combined into an ALGV-wide Elite advisors program, and travel advisors will be celebrated for their combined ALGV performance and not at the brand level. Elite levels are Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond and Diamond Select.
“While it’s bittersweet to wind down the 25-year legacy of Best of the Best, we are looking forward to ramping up the new Elite program and rewarding agents for their overall ALGV success,” said Scott Wiseman, former Travel Impressions President and current ALGV Senior Vice President and General Manager, Travel Agent Brands.
BOB attendees were treated to daily greetings from Lance Bass, Carson Kressley and Mark McGrath, and a surprise performance from the band Sugar Ray. In addition to a keynote speech delivered by magician Jon Dorenbos, BOB attendees participated in excursions from Amstar DMC, Vallarta-area site inspections and a volunteer give-back opportunity at Fundacion Punta de Mita, a local community center in Punta Mita.
