San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2015

Wright Travel Agency in San Rafael is proud to announce that the company has been named among the top PRO Award winners list for 2015, an annual ranking recognizing the leading travel agents by Palace Resorts, the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations.

Wright Travel Agency took home the top honors at Palace Resorts’ Second Annual Global Conference including: Top Producing Travel Agent (Tammy Wright), Top Home Based Agency, 2 Platinum PRO Agents (Tammy Wright & Wendy Hicks), and a Gold PRO Agent (Patricia Jordan).

Palace Resorts celebrated the brand’s second annual Palace Experience Global Conference from September 27 - 30, 2015 at signature property, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun. Industry insiders, members of the travel agent community and tour operators from international destinations including South Korea and the United Kingdom, attended educational seminars and sales-driven workshops, experienced day trips to other Palace Resorts properties, networked and celebrated in style. Additionally, keynote speakers Peter Greenberg, Travel Editor for CBS News, and Mark Murphy, CEO of travAlliancemedia, presented relevant insights about the travel industry.

“Wright Travel Agency is a valued partner of Palace Resorts,” said Frank Corzo, Vice President of US Field Sales for Palace Resorts. “Our success is tied to the efforts of the travel agent community and we are thrilled to honor Wright Travel Agency with the prestigious Platinum and Gold PRO awards as well as Top Producing Travel Agent and Travel Agency.”

“The success of Palace Resorts is rooted in our investment and mutually beneficial relationship with the travel agent community. Our lasting partnerships have been established over the years because we as a company understand and appreciate the needs of the travel agent community. That understanding and appreciation was never more evident than during our 2nd Annual Global Conference,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts. “We have made great strides throughout the brand’s 30-year history. We recognize that this is only the beginning, and our future success goes hand in hand with our valued partners.”

The conference commenced Sunday evening with a lavish welcome cocktail reception where guests enjoyed the resorts’ delectable libations and appetizing hors d’oeuvres. Monday’s events featured an opening general assembly from key Palace Resorts executives and speakers followed by an informational trade show event where agents had the opportunity to consult with a variety of Palace Resorts’ partners and observe a variety of wedding mockups with various color combinations and cultural-themed offerings while enjoying delectable cuisine from Mexican, Italian and Asian food stations. Understanding the importance of destination weddings, the brand gave agents the opportunity to meet with esteemed wedding vendors and consultants who provided guidance in order to ensure successful ceremonies.

After the trade show, there were three educational sessions ranging from social media to travel business tips, and a Travel Agents’ Appreciation: Mexican Bash festivity to wrap up the day. The conference continued with a variety of options for attendees including a tour of the Palace Resorts properties located in the Cancun Hotel Zone, a tour of Playacar Palace and the CEDIS (Central Distribution System) Experience Tour. The CEDIS tour gave attendees an in-depth look at how Palace Resorts produces high-quality gastronomic offerings such as tortillas, beef and homemade ice cream. Palace Resorts’ CEDIS facility, which is pivotal in ensuring the brands’ commitment of consistently providing quality offerings such as refreshing fruit juices and freshly baked bread, has the most advanced central distribution system within Mexico’s Southeastern area and is complete with state of the art equipment for all manufacturing standards. Additionally, the brand also hosted the PRO Recognition Awards, a black-tie gala ceremony created to honor the agents who have been invaluable to the success of Palace Resorts.
