17 Jan Celebrating Our Second Anniversary: Two Years of Growth and Passion for Travel
On the eve of our second anniversary, we thought we’d look back at the last two years, celebrate a little and recap the many accomplishments of the agency, which are only made possible by the hard work of our members. Levarté Travel launched in 2021, in the middle of an incredibly challenging global travel environment. COVID-19 slowed travel to a halt, but we grew rapidly, with our mission of lifting up travel professionals guiding us.
In the past two years, Levarté has been recognized as a Premier Agency Member by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), making it one of only 30 host agencies out of 8,000 in North America to earn this distinction. We’ve also been awarded Elite Sapphire Status with ALG Vacations and Delta Diamond Medallion Status with Delta Vacations.
Our Levarté Academy offers training for both new and experienced travel business owners with higher education certifications, competitive membership benefits and a community of passionate travel professionals. In 2022, we launched a partnership with the Travel Institute to offer their resources and educational certificates at an exclusive rate.
FAM trips are an essential experience for travel advisors, and we’re proud to have offered several exciting trips aimed at deepening vendor connections and knowledge of local tourism in Mexico, Greece, Dubai and others. These trips are made better by the commitment of our vendors to make each trip unique and valuable, with guided tours and access to amenities.
We’ve also had loads of FUN! From our first annual L.I.F.T. retreat in Mexico to WAVE Camps and virtual seminars, our members infuse these events with their infectious passion for travel and building a successful business. Our members have also made incredible achievements in sales while catering personally to clients and making dreams come true.
From our virtual launch in 2022 to winning sales awards to partnering with respected educational providers, Levarté’s two years in business have been whirlwind. We couldn’t be more proud and thankful to our members, vendors and partners who have taken the journey with us and made us successful through their hard work. We’re lifting up travel professionals and we’re ready for another banner year!
