Mark Conroy to share Silversea news in agent webinar

Mark Conroy - to address the latest developments at Silversea in a live webinar March 30
Mark Conroy is known as one of cruising's most travel-agent-friendly leaders. Just weeks after joining Silversea Cruises as md for the Americas, he's going to host a live webinar for agents on March 30.

The webinar is set for 3 p.m. EDT.

Conroy plans to discuss the latest developments at Silversea, including recently launched incentive opportunities and new marketing tools that soon will be available to help agents close more sales.

'Our company is expanding and we want to keep our travel partners informed on our progress and the exciting product innovations that will make selling Silversea luxury cruises one of their easiest and most rewarding undertakings,' Conroy said. 'With the arrival of our beautiful new Silver Muse next year, and the recent launch of our "Most Exclusive All-inclusive" packages—creating even greater value for agents' clients—there's never been a better time to partner and grow with Silversea.'

The webinar caps the line's Travel Agent Appreciation Month. During March, agents can receive such rewards as a $250 Visa Gift Card available on select voyages when booked before March 31. And a new 'Sell Three, Sail Free' program enables agents to earn their own complimentary familiarization cruise when they book three new suites in March on any 2016 voyage. Both benefits are available to agents based in the Americas.

Complementing the agent incentives are special value-added programs for their clients. Dozens of Mediterranean, Asia, and Africa itineraries offer Silversea's 'Most Exclusive All-inclusive' packages, which include a two-night pre-cruise stay at a deluxe hotel (or three-night safari for Africa sailings), all transfers and round-trip international airfare from more than 50 gateways in the US and Canada. A wide choice of free shore excursions is offered in every port of call.

And a new collection of specialty voyages, titled 'Exclusively Yours—Enriched Voyages,' provides programs to make the experience richer and more exclusive. These include opera shows performed by the world-renowned Accademia Teatro alla Scala, classic ballet performances by soloists from the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Russia and culinary voyages hosting renowned Relais & Châteaux Chefs, to name a few.
