Shearings & A-ROSA invite CLIA conference delegates on educational

Shearings Holidays and A-ROSA River Cruises have teamed up to offer agents attending the CLIA River Cruise Conference in Paris this November, the chance to register for an educational.

A-ROSA VIVA, which sails on the Seine, will be in Paris for the conference and agents who wish to experience a sailing will be welcomed aboard a few days before the conference start. The ship will depart from Paris on November 6 and sail to Rouen and Vernon before returning on November 9.

Travel to the ship is not included, but CLIA have secured competitive rates with Eurostar for delegates.

Mike Bowers, national sales manager at Shearings Holidays, said: “We know the value that seeing a ship and experiencing it first hand can provide when it comes to selling a product. The A-ROSA concept is very different to many other river cruise lines and attracts a wide range of ages from families to the young at heart. We are therefore delighted that we can offer some of the agents attending the conference the opportunity to see it for themselves.”

Andy Harmer, director for CLIA UK & Ireland, said:“We are delighted to be working with Shearings Holidays and A-ROSA to offer agents the opportunity to experience a river cruise first hand before this year’s River Cruise Conference in Paris. Fam trips such as these are an unrivalled way of broadening agents’ knowledge and boosting their sales skills.”

Agents that want to apply for a place should contact Michael.bowers@shearings.com with their details by August 28.

Once all applications have been received, the operator will be in touch with the successful agents.
