Seabourn has announced that it will be running its Global Partner Appreciation events for the second year running.
The events, which will be held up and down the country throughout March, will be held in town and cities including Altrincham, Birmingham, Bournemouth and Glasgow.
They will be an opportunity for trade partners to meet with Seabourn’s sales team and learn about the new tools and assets made available.
Seabourn is launching the first of two expedition class ships in 2020.
“We call these ‘Partner Appreciation Events’ because they are designed to show how much we value our travel agent partners. This year we are extending the locations of our events from Bournemouth right up to Glasgow, and we’ are truly excited about sharing Seabourn’s news, immersive videos and sales tools with agents across the UK. Said Wendy Lahmich, Seabourn’s director of sales UK & Ireland “We are looking forward to meeting up with our valued partners and new-to-cruise agents who will learn more about Seabourn and enjoy a few surprises.”
The schedule is as follows:

Chris Austin, Seabourn’s senior vice president of global marketing and sales, added: “Our travel advisor partners have long been invaluable to Seabourn, and we want to continue to support their growth and success.
“This 2nd annual Global Partner Appreciation Event offers our teams the opportunity to share stories, news and promotions with our partners so that they are up-to-date and armed with the latest information on Seabourn to share with their clients.
