Rosewood Hotels and Resorts Launched New Education Course On Travel Agent University

June 8, 2017

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has launched a new agent specialist course on the premier travel industry e-learning platform, Travel Agent University. Travel Agent University (TAU), with 45,000 plus active members, is the industry’s largest online travel agent community, having graduated more specialists than any other industry education program, awarding over one million diplomas since inception.

“We are very proud to partner with Travel Agent University, the travel agent’s preferred e-learning platform,” says Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to many years of continued collaboration educating agents about our elite suite of products.” 

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts manages 19 one-of-a-kind luxury properties in 11 countries, with 16 new hotels under development.  Each Rosewood hotel embraces the brand’s A Sense of Place® philosophy to reflect the individual location’s history, culture and sensibilities.  The Rosewood collection includes some of the world’s most legendary hotels and resorts, including The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel in New York, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas and Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel in Paris, as well as new classics such as Rosewood Beijing and Rosewood London. 

Kimberly Newbury, Questex Travel Group managing director of e-learning & loyalty said TAU is thrilled to partner with a brand that truly sees the value of agent training and specialization.

“The Questex Travel Group has been deeply invested in travel agent education for more than 23 years, and has proven time and again that agents who specialize are seven times more likely to sell a supplier’s products, than a non-specialist.”

Launched in 1993, Travel Agent University is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The e-learning site’s resource center provides access to valuable sales tools, webinars, videos itineraries and other assets designed to help agents increase sales after they graduate. Agents also can utilize a central dashboard to review their course activity, track the status of their progress and access rewards, including gift cards, bonus commissions, familiarization trips and monthly giveaways.
