Melia Braco Village trains and fêtes local agents – all in one weekend
Melia Braco Village Resort hosted the ‘Best of the Best Local Agents’ at their specialist workshop weekend recently.
Selected based on their production for 2016, only the best agencies were invited, says Angella Bennett, Melia Braco’s director of sales.
“The agents experienced our famous Friday night Street Dinner and Dance party with curbed side buffet and live show cooking and authentic reggae entertainment,” she told Hospitality Jamaica.
The two-day workshop saw the agents focusing on product update and sales strategies, followed by an awards luncheon, recognising the best of the best agents.
Outstanding Leisure Sales was awarded to Leisure for Pleasure; Outstanding Group Sales was awarded to Luxury Konnections and MBV Rising Star for 2017 – Nova Events & Travel.
It was definitely not all work and no play, as the agents participated in a session tagged fun and games’, by Bennett.
“The entire team participated in a series of activities, including rock wall, obstacle course, at our Adventure Park, with Team Level and Team Villagers battling for the ultimate prize.”
The weekend culminated with a special celebratory dinner and more prizes and surprises. Some of the agents who attended had glowing remarks about the weekend.
“It was an awesome familiarisation trip. The Melia Braco sales team is amazing. I could not have asked for a better weekend. It will be my pleasure to sell Melia Braco,” said Natalie Palmer of Iconic Travel.
Judith James-Watt of Leisure for Pleasure described her time at the resort as “excellent. Thank you Melia for the training; the prizes and surprises. It was great. We will sell, sell, sell to attain our position as outstanding Leisure Sales.”
For Steven Kerr of Trafalgar Travel, it was indeed one of the best local familiarisation trips he had experienced. “It surpassed my expectations,” he concluded.
