At our Convention Tour in Iceland, we polled attendees to see which personality traits enabled them to be successful Group Coordinators—here’s what made the list.
Organized & motivated
Recruiting groups to travel takes a certain level of organization—there are contacts to list, reservations to file and events to plan—and Group Coordinators love being a part of that process. The most successful Group Coordinators take advantage of available resources, such as their online My Account that tracks traveler reservations, contact info and more.
Passionate & creative
Generating buzz for your tour is easy if you’re passionate about each destination and love sharing the travel experience with others. Most Group Coordinators show their passion through thinking of creative ways to excite their travelers, whether it’s a recruiting party with a destination theme or a sending out a monthly newsletter.
Calm & flexible
Seeing the world is often unpredictable, but Group Coordinators know how to make any situation a positive experience. Keeping your cool by turning a delayed flight into an opportunity to celebrate a recent birthday with a bottle of local wine can make your travelers’ day.
Above all else, Group Coordinators are fun, social and love being a part of the travel community.
