WestJet begins 2019 Travel Trade Expos

April 18, 2019

CALGARY, Alberta. April 18, 2019.

WestJet was excited to host more than 750 travel agents in our first two Travel Trade Expos. The Expos kicked off in Ajax and Mississauga April 16 and 17 and will now head back on the road to visit Vancouver, Langley, Edmonton and Calgary. WestJet expects over 2500 travel agents in total for their fifth annual Travel Trade Expos.

In each city travel agents will be hosted by their regional WestJet Business Development Managers and interact with many of the airline’s preferred hotel and destination partners. Presentations by WestJet representatives will focus on WestJet’s vision to Enhance, Evolve and Expand. Product enhancements, the new Dreamliner routes and the Business cabin will be a key focus for the events. To thank its partners for their support, WestJet will give away prizes in each city.

“The transition to become a global carrier, while staying true to our core, has been exciting as we have announced new routes, new destinations, and taken delivery of our first three 787 Dreamliner’s,” said Jane Clementino, WestJet Director, Agency Sales. “We value the relationship with our travel trade partners and these events give us a chance to meet the agents and listen to feedback in order to continue successful long-term relationships.”

WestJet will wrap up the Spring Travel Trade Expos in their hometown of Calgary on May 2, and will announce dates and locations for the Fall events in the future.
