BECOME THE BEST NEXION MEMBER YOU CAN BE!

This intense educational program will provide you with the basics of being a Nexion member and how to be an incredibly successful travel agent! From sales to marketing to operations, this boot camp will “condition” you to “be all you can be” and so much more!

*Hotel and airline fees are the responsibility of each Boot Camp attendee. Registration fee is non-refundable. As you should be selling travel protection to your customers, so should you purchase travel insurance to cover cancellations or unforeseen emergency situations. Travel professionals have access from some of our insurance supplier partners to purchase annual insurance coverage; see their supplier page for details.

Thank you to our Boot Camp Sponsors!
