11 May Join Year of the Travel Agent Thunderclap
Travelers, agents and suppliers are encouraged to spread the word about the value of expert travel advisors
During National Travel and Tourism Week, Travel Leaders Group invited travelers and the entire travel industry to participate in the #YearoftheTravelAgent Thunderclap campaign by posting pro-travel agent messages to social media between now and June 15.
A Thunderclap campaign combines crowdsourcing and social media to share one message simultaneously across social networks. When someone chooses to join in, their friends and followers on social media receive a notification asking them to participate as well. Then, on a specific date and time, Thunderclap releases a final message on all participants’ social channels at once, with the objective of making the campaign a trending topic online. Travel Leaders Group is asking the travel industry and everyone who loves to travel with a travel agent to join the Thunderclap campaign. The final message will be shared at 1:30 p.m. Pacific time on June 15.
