Travel Impressions Announces #WeekendLearning Winner for #SensationalSandos Campaign

Marsha Kirby, Travel by Marsha, Wins Grand Prize Stay

FARMINGDALE, NY (June 19, 2017) — Travel Impressions' (www.travelimpressions.com) has awarded Marsha Kirby of Travel by Marsha in Medicine Lake, MT, with a five-night stay for two in an opulent Laguna Suite at Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort with a complimentary spa treatment for two people. Kirby had the highest number of Sandos bookings throughout the month of March and earned the grand prize vacation following Travel Impressions' #WeekendLearning (#WLS) social media series that ran on Facebook throughout March 2017.

Upon hearing the news that she was the winning agent, Kirby exclaimed: "I was ecstatic and excited and just tickled. Can't wait to book and go!" She notes that she's looking forward to "more pictures and views of the resort so that I can sell it even more. I also want to explore a few other Sandos while there."

Participating agents received insider selling tips for all-inclusive Sandos Hotels & Resorts in Mexico and benefited from learning lesser-known selling points on each property from the convenience of their desktop or mobile device. The month-long #SensationalSandos campaign delved below the surface of the Eco Experience at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort, beyond the sun and sand embodied in the Beach Experience at Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos and Sandos Playacar Beach Resort, and into the culture, entertainment and culinary splendor encapsulated by the Lifestyle Experience at Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort. The social media campaign helped agents learn to differentiate between each of the brand’s all-inclusive resort offerings in Mexico, aiding their ability to tailor recommendations for each prospective vacationer.

Kirby explained that the most interesting thing she learned over the course of the #WeekendLearning Series was "the locations of the rooms at the resorts and the different room categories available to book, particularly the adults-only section at Sandos Playacar Beach Resort."

Echoing Travel Impressions' commitment to travel agents, Kirby said, "Travel Impressions is amazing to me! I know we have many suppliers to book with, but booking with Travel Impressions, I have security in my bookings. I know that if I did have any issues or concerns, I just have to contact my BDM and she is there to assist. I can sell Travel Impressions because of security and trust!"
