“[Travel advisors] are the number one factor around credibility when it comes to getting new clients,” said Mr. Juan Vela Ruiz, vice-president of Velas Resorts, who was also in attendance of the annual event. “I need somebody who can come up to clients and say, ‘This is true. I’ve been there. I know it.’”

This is the main reason why the top producers are invited to this luxurious weekend, not only to be rewarded but to know, love and experience what they’re selling.

With different special activities and an exclusive oceanfront gala to close the perfect retreat, each guest was delighted with an exquisite gourmet dinner.

Additionally, Caroline Boily, a groups and incentives manager at Voyages Laurier du Vallon based in Quebec, won the award for being Velas Resorts’ top Groups producer; she successfully booked more than 1,500 room nights at the properties last year alone.

On the other hand, Julie Shifrin was recognized as the top producer fits and Velas Ambassador 2019.

Next year, the brand will be celebrating “Partner of the Year 2020” in Grand Velas Los Cabos. Travel specialists will be surrounded by the destination’s splendor and the assurance that they will be rewarded for making an alliance with Velas Resorts.

In addition, we invite you to join the Velas Experts program, which provides many benefits for the agents and makes them part of a big family, because what they sell are not their properties and its facilities, but sybarite experiences and a world-class service that goes above and beyond the All-Inclusive definition.
