Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) Australasia has announced that the 2017 Masters Conference will take place onboard the Genting Dream, cruising from Hong Kong.
Designed for travel agents who aspire to the highest level of cruise industry accreditation, the annual Masters Conference combines intensive training sessions with a firsthand cruise experience.
Returning to oversee CLIA Australasia’s 19th Masters, US-based sales guru and motivator Scott Koepf will lead the conference sessions, which will focus on how the cruise industry is evolving and how consultants can take advantage of the sector’s growth.
After completing the course and a comprehensive post-conference assignment, agents will enter the prestigious CLIA Cruise Masters’ ranks.
This year’s conference commences in Hong Kong on 16 September, with agents enjoying one-night pre-cruise accommodation before boarding Genting Dream for a five-night cruise, which will include visits to Naha and Miyakojima in Japan.
CLIA Australasia managing director Joel Katz said he expected the Masters Conference to be very popular.
“The opportunity to sail on one of the most exciting new ships to be launched in Asia should make this year’s Masters event particularly memorable. Spaces are limited so we are encouraging agents to register early,” Katz said.
The conference is open to all consultants who hold CLIA Ambassador level accreditation and are employed by a CLIA member travel agent.
