Organised by Selling Travel since 2004, The Travel Agents Choice Awards acknowledge excellence within the travel industry and are the only awards that are entirely decided by travel professionals.
As they are decided by those really in the know, the awards are highly regarded within the UK travel industry. Voters include users of leading online training provider, Travel Uni, travel agents, homeworkers, online agencies and tour operator reservation staff.
Tawash, an online destination training programme for UK travel agents and other tourism industry professionals, has been developed as part of QTA’s ongoing work to facilitate and strengthen relationships with the UK trade. Across five modules, the course, which is completely free of charge, allows for flexible studying. Each module ends with a multiple choice test which needs to be completed before progressing.
An important platform for Qatar’s promotion in the UK market, Tawash educates front line sales staff enabling them to confidently offer and sell the destination to their clients. Particular emphasis is given to educating the trade on Qatar’s superb and varied leisure activities with a luxury and cultural focus.
