TravClan, recently organised a series of events for travel agents across leading Indian cities including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Ahmedabad. The aim was to introduce TravClan’s path- breaking services to leading travel agents in these cities.
The events aimed to provide networking opportunities and educational sessions for travel agents to upskill themselves for the new normal, and get insights on latest developments in the travel industry. For instance, the Kolkata event witnessed over 100 agents attend the gathering. It was sponsored by two resorts in Maldives. Similar outreach was witnessed in the events held at the other major cities.
With the Indian travel and hospitality sector gaining momentum and global flight movements resuming, the time has come for Indian travel agents to reorient themselves with the global trends, needs and traveller preferences. Accordingly, there is a need to adopt a digital-first approach and integrate travel operations with requisite technology that would help the agents in running operations smoothly, and generating greater revenues. As a global B2B travel services provider, TravClan has been taking initiatives to empower the travel agent community and create avenues of mutual growth for all.
Chirag Agarwal, Co-founder, TravClan, said, “Smaller and offline travel agents contribute more than $500 billion to the travel sector economy globally. The pandemic made operations more challenging for them and necessitated a digital transformation. TravClan has built a robust platform that has already enabled thousands of travel companies to recover from the pandemic impact and grow their business faster than ever. We have adopted a tech-driven approach to resolve all major challenges faced by the travel agents. The events served as excellent engagement opportunities between the platform and the travel agents from different cities across India.”
