Hines won the tickets thanks to his completion of the Colombia Specialist Program hosted on Travelweek’s Learning Centre.
The program, available in English and French, offers an opportunity for travel agents to learn about Colombia, the “most welcoming destination on earth.”
Agents who take the course learn about Colombia’s six unforgettable regions: West Colombian Andes, Greater Colombian Caribbean, Colombian Pacific, Eastern Colombian Andes, Colombian Amazon-Orinoco and Colombian Massif.
The program is split up into various modules, covering general country info, details on regions and activities, luxury offerings and more.
Additionally, agents can learn more about Copa Airlines, a leading airline in Latin America, connecting travellers from Canada to the 11 cities within its route network.
Álvaro Concha, ProColombia’s Trade Comissioner for Canada says: “Colombia is not far away. It is only six hours away from Toronto and seven hours away from Montreal on a direct flight to Bogotá. For those looking to find a home away from home, visit Colombia and check it out!”
The training program offers all the information agents need to know to help sell and promote Colombia, from the country’s climate and practical information, to the exciting experiences and can’t-miss opportunities for travellers.
Agents who completed the course by July 18, 2022 were entered into the contest, for a chance to win the two tickets to Colombia.
On hearing the good news about his contest win, Hines told Travelweek: “Colombia has long been on my list of countries to visit in South America (being one of the few I haven’t yet had the chance to visit), and thanks to these vouchers I can finally plan my trip. The easy part is deciding to go to Colombia, the hard part is deciding where to visit! Thank you to Copa, ProColombia and Travelweek!”
