The profession of

travel agent:

getting it right

With the Travel Agents Cup

2019 edition coming to its

culmination this afternoon

in the Salle Agora, IFTM Top

Resa yet again underlines

the important role held by

professionals of the travel

industry in working face

to face with customers,

analysing their wants and

needs, and transforming

these into unforgettable

and unique itineraries.

It is clear today that an

increasing number of people

understand the true value of

a skilled travel advisor. Who

will be crowned France’s

“best of the best” today?

Whoever it is, he or she

will be a true figurehead

for an industry in constant

evolution… And whoever it

is, we already take our hats

off to you!
