San Diego played host to the finale of the FTI Mega FAM at the end of April. The event brought 80 travel agents from Germany, Austria & Switzerland to San Diego for a 3 night stay after exploring other parts of California earlier in the week. These top-selling travel agents were able to explore the destination – with planned excursions to the San Diego Zoo, USS Midway Museum, Seaport Village, Fashion Valley, Balboa Park and a city tour on Old Town Trolley.
Agents also had a day of training (and then fun) at SeaWorld – where they listened to presentations from our Travel Trade Director, Benjamin Eastman, SeaWorld, FTI and The Lufthansa Group. Local San Diego members also had the opportunity to connect with the agents during a trade show hour.
The FAM concluded with a tour of the Hotel Del Coronado, a glorious San Diego sunset, beach party and fireworks (sponsored by The Lufthansa Group). Overall the agents expressed a great appreciation of the destination and vowed to promote it more to their clients.
This hosting opportunity was also a great chance for San Diego to promote its new direct, international Condor and Edelweiss (part of the Lufthansa Group) flights.
