Nexion has a new training event, "Leap into Luxury Travel Forum," geared for agents who want to start selling luxury travel or expand their luxury sales.

The forum will be held Nov. 10-12 at the Pelican Grand Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale. It will offer attendees the chance to network with luxury suppliers, learn sales skills to upsell existing clients and attract new luxury clients, and participate in supplier roundtables.

Event speakers include Azamara Club Cruises CEO Larry Pimentel, Travel Leaders Network vice president Perry Lungmus, Nexion vice president of sales and marketing Cris De Souza, Nexion director of industry relations Faith Kuczaj, and Nexion business development and education manager Terri "TC" Phelps.

Nexion already offers the Luxury Travel Sales Summit an invitation-only event for agents who sell a high volume of luxury travel.

"Based on member requests, we are now offering this new forum available to all independent member agents designed to cater to those who want to launch or build upon their luxury sales business," Nexion president Jackie Friedman said in a statement.

Agents in attendance will have an opportunity to inspect the Pelican Grand Beach Resort and learn more about Fort Lauderdale tourism from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau.
