After being met with huge success within the industry last year, Trafalgar is thrilled to announce that National Agent Appreciation day is back for a second year on 22 May 2019. Agent Appreciation Day, created by Trafalgar, is all about celebrating the incredible work that agent partners do to connect travellers to their travel dreams as well as their continued support for Trafalgar. The brand is not only celebrating their valued agent partners once again, but is calling on the travel and tourism industry to make this an industry-wide celebration of agents, as recognition of the amazing work that they do.
“As the #AgentsFirst brand, we are proud to continue our Agents Day celebration in 2019 and praise the efforts of our hard-working industry partners” said Trafalgar Australia’s Managing Director – Jason Wolff. “We could not exist without them, and 22 May we will be celebrating them, their work and how they help us connect our guests to their travel dreams. We want to ensure they get spoilt yet again with a dedicated day just for them.” He said.
The national day joins the brand’s celebrations across many of Trafalgar’s other regions around the world as well as other brands within the TTC family, who are also paying tribute to their valued agent partners globally on 22 May and throughout the entire month of May.
Celebrations and activations that Australian agents can look forward to today include:
Trafalgar will be taking it to the streets with their sales teams to hand deliver PERSONALISED SURPRISE GOODIES to their agents throughout the day. Agents are asked to please share a photo of their treats using #AusAgentsDay

PLANTING TREES IN HONOUR OF AGENTS
As part of Trafalgar’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and the future of travel, Global CEO Gavin Tollman will commission 100 trees to be planted to commemorate the occasion with long-term sustainability partner One Tree Planted, to support reforestation across their projects in North America and Tanzania. Trafalgar has already planted more than 150 acres of tress as part of their leading e-documentation solution.
“We are still determined to make #AusAgentsDay an annual celebration on the second last Wednesday of each May…so mark it in the calendar to see what 2020 celebrations will bring!” Wolff concluded.
Happy second annual Travel Agents Day from Trafalgar!
