Local travel agents, Beth and John Mills of Travel by Beth and independent agent of Island Bridal Travel in St. Joseph, attended the Sandals Resort International’s 2012 S.T.A.R. Awards, Sandals Travel Agency Recognition, in Nassau, Bahamas.
Sandals Resort International rolled out its red carpet for scores of its top travel agency partners from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, at its 11th annual S.T.A.R Awards at the upscale and newly remodeled Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort.
The S.T.A.R. Awards recognize the travel agencies and individual travel agents who have excelled in sales performance through outstanding marketing initiatives, exceptional product knowledge and service for clients.
Sandals chairman Gordon “Butch” Stewart credited the success of his hotel chain, which also includes Beaches and Grand Pineapple Resort, to the hard working travel partners.
In his message to the travel partners, he said he was proud of the resorts and pointed out they keep getting better and better.
“We have had the most amazing love affair with the travel agents throughout the world, North America, UK and Europe,” he said. “Our love affair with travel agents is 30 years old and going strong. We are grateful for all you do for us and all we have achieved together.”
“We are very confident in our product and our role as leaders in the marketplace. With solid support of our travel partners like you, we will continue to evolve and grow, overcoming the many challenges we face together,” he added. “Your achievements, which we celebrate tonight, are proof of that.”
