VIP Vacations Inc. was one of 52 travel agencies and organizations receiving a coveted “Globe Award” from Travel Impressions, one of the country’s largest tour operators selling destinations worldwide. Award recipients are selected based upon criteria including business growth, innovation and partnership.
The award was presented at the tour operator’s annual “Best of the Best” celebration held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, for top performing travel agencies and organizations that book travel through American Express Vacations or Travel Impressions. The program featured an executive forum with Travel Impressions’ President and CEO Steve Gorga, a feedback session from attendees, round table networking sessions with attending suppliers, a catamaran cruise, a zip line adventure, a golf tournament and spa pampering at the new Rock Spa. The highlight of the four-day celebration was a gala dinner featuring entertainment by disco icon Gloria Gaynor. In a gesture of sharing and thanks to the people of the Dominican Republic, Best of the Best attendees donated a variety of school supplies for distribution to Dominican school children.
“We are always so proud to honor our Globe Award winners, because they truly represent peak performance in the travel industry,” said Steve Gorga. “These professionals are sincerely committed to delivering outstanding customer service and providing memorable travel experiences for their clients. We could not ask for better partners!”
