Carnival Cruise Line will visit travel agents in six cities from May 11-18 as part of a festival inspired “Agentpalooza” bus tour. Hosted by Carnival’s Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez and the line’s sales leadership team, the tour encompasses events featuring one-on-one meetings between agents and Carnival sales team members, marketing and product experiences and a variety of engaging entertainment activities. A community service and philanthropic component will round out each event.
“Visiting agents on a bus tour is an excellent way to cover a great deal of ground at once with numerous team members and to do what we do best – work with agents on providing the best sales and service we can while having a great time along the way,” said Perez. “We have continued the theme from our popular ‘Travel Agents Rock’ campaign, and named these festival-style events ‘Agentpalooza,’ which we think really captures the celebration of our amazing rock star travel partners.”
Stops on the “Agentpalooza” bus tour schedule include:
- May 11: Houston, Texas
- May 12: New Orleans, La.
- May 15: Charleston, S.C.
- May 16: Atlanta, Ga.
- May 17: Jacksonville, Fla.
- May 18: Orlando, Fla.
During each event, agents will have the opportunity to engage with Perez and the team in four different bus tour areas. A “Carnival Fun Zone” features a live DJ, photo booth, lawn games, and a Cherry on Top candy area. An “At Your Service” area provides agents the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with the sales leadership team and their local business development directors. A “Community Impact” space is dedicated towards giving back to local food banks and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which Perez is currently supporting as part of its annual fundraising drive. Lastly, the line will host a ‘Rockstar Moments’ space in Houston and New Orleans where agents can participate in fun video segments, to be aired on the line’s trade Facebook and GoCCL.com agent portal. Light snacks and exciting raffle prizes, including a complimentary eight-day Carnival cruise, will be given away at each “Agentpalooza” tour stop.
Travel agents are encouraged to sign up early for these events, as availability is limited. During the tour dates, agents will also be able to follow the tour and participate in events online via GoCCL.com and Carnival’s trade Facebook page.
