Uniglobe Travel Center (UTC), the host agency division of Uniglobe Travel USA and part of Uniglobe Travel Partners (No. 44 on Travel Weekly's 2020 Power List), has affiliated with Virtuoso.
The affiliation extends to UTC's 700 independent contractors, as well as Uniglobe agencies in the U.S. that participate in the Uniglobe Leisure Program.
UTC was formerly an Ensemble Travel Group member. UTC said it is Ensemble's No. 3 top producer in terms of 2019 sales in the U.S.
Betsy Geiser, UTC's vice president, said in a statement that the move follows a shift toward more luxury sales.
"The experience Virtuoso has in the luxury market will allow those agencies to further develop their offerings to clients," she said.
Correction: This report was updated Jan. 21 to change Uniglobe Travel Center's producer ranking within Ensemble.
