SALEM, Ohio — In 1928, a young man purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano in Switzerland. That single rowboat would be the beginning of one of the world’s leading travel companies: Globus Journeys.
Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every corner of the world, yet remains family owned and steeped in values the founder had when he first set out across Lake Lugano — to enlighten travelers by showing them the very best of destinations.
The Globus family of brands includes Avalon Waterways, Monograms, Cosmos and, of course, Globus Journeys. Those companies have also become well recognized by travel groups and group leaders for quality and dependability in travel.
Globus is extending its outreach to group travel planners in 2017 with the commitment to sponsor meal functions at five major travel conferences held by The Group Travel Family. “Globus is a strong believer in group travel and recognizes the value that the group leader plays,” said Charlie Presley, founder of The Group Travel Family.
Globus will sponsor meal functions at the Select Traveler Conference, the African American Travel Conference, the Going On Faith Conference and Boomers In Groups, as well as the TravelTalks meetings in 35 U.S. cities this year. Each of the listed conferences is attended by travel planners that organize trips and select destinations for thousands of clubs and organizations.
Globus will bring its message of new and interesting tour products and destinations to attending travel groups at each meeting throughout the year. At TravelTalks, which serves the mature group travel market in 35 cities, Globus has developed a fun and informative “elevator pitch” that engages the group planner with the Globus service and adds an enjoyable element to the morning meeting.
When you travel with Globus, you are considered a group with only eight people traveling together, and group leaders begin earning special benefits. Globus offers over 135 group packages.
