The quality of the travel agents at the recent European Travel Forum in Madeira was at the highest level. They were genuine, professional, and eager to learn about our products and services. TravelSMG continues to be the premier travel show that attracts the best travel professionals from the United States.”

TravelSMG brought to Madeira qualified leisure travel agents, that were truly keen to get to know more about the island and to experience first-hand all the destination has to offer! Madeira Promotion Bureau was very pleased with this partnership that will for sure continue!

“This experience is so much more than a Travel Industry conference - it was a true cultural immersion program. We dove deep into multiple destinations around the area, and got to meet Suppliers/Hoteliers one-on-one. This is definitely the best way to dip your toes in and learn all that a destination has to offer.”

There is NO substitute for first-hand knowledge of a destination when booking. There are little things that you just can’t know unless you’ve been there. Gaining this experience gives me greater confidence and sets me apart from other advisors who only have “academic” knowledge of a destination.
