Clia UK & Ireland is to host a series of live webinars as part of its new Clia Summer School for travel agent members.

The online learning resource created for UK and Irish agent members will place throughout July and August, with Clia cruise lines and partners sharing industry updates.

Product sessions will run from 9-10am every Thursday until the end of August, starting on July 9.

UK and Ireland director Andy Harmer will be joined by four representatives from different cruise lines, spanning the ocean, river, luxury, and expedition sectors.

Joining the first webinar will be MSC Cruises, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Ponant and Azamara.

Additional sessions will take place on Wednesdays, where agents will hear expert selling tips, advice and insights from Clia partners. The first of these sessions, called Sales and Positivity with Debbee Dale,  will take place July 8 from 9–10am.

Harmer said: “The brand new Clia Summer School is a weekly opportunity for Clia travel agents to join interactive webinars, where they will hear directly from cruise line representatives and Clia partners. During the live webinars, agents will be able to ask questions and learn about the latest industry updates, helping to answer queries their customers may have.”

Travel agent members will be able to register for the Clia Summer School from July 1.
