Gifted Travel Network (GTN) announced the tenth anniversary of the company's founding during its celebratory network-wide Zoom call on Friday, February 24. GTN plans to celebrate this decade-long milestone all year long, culminating in their Gala event on October 11 in Mooresville, NC.
“The seeds for GTN were planted before our founding year in 2013,” said Chief Visionary Officer Meredith Calloway, “The foundation for our host agency was started in 2011 with the Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs, a company I started to provide travel business owners with the education needed to create profitable travel businesses.”
Gifted Travel Network was founded on February 25, 2013, by Meredith Calloway, Jen Cochrane, and Vanessa McGovern. In 2013, GTN was created to guide travel entrepreneurs to achieve freedom, fulfillment, and financial satisfaction. Since then, GTN has evolved into the premier host agency for luxury travel advisors by offering an elevated hosting experience with support and access to its award-winning professional development programs.
“It’s incredible to reflect on the accomplishments over the past 10 years,” said Cochrane, “From starting (GTN) in a spare bedroom of my home, hiring our first employee to outgrowing four offices with our now 28 employees. We are proud of our award-winning professional development programs and collaborative community of 350+ travel advisors, this anniversary is truly the highlight of our careers.”
In celebration of this decade-long success, GTN has unveiled its 10-year anniversary edition logo and announced the details of its 10-year anniversary celebration Gala. Each month new featured articles and social media initiatives will reflect the past 10 years of GTN, from where they started to where they are today, with each being a small piece leading up to this major accomplishment.
“We will continue to blaze new trails in the industry while remaining steadfast in attracting new talent to what we believe is the greatest industry in the world,” said McGovern “We are grateful for the past 10 years and are just getting started.”
