ACTA hit the road recently to recognize Canada’s Second Annual Travel Agent Day, held the first Wednesday in May, May 1, 2013.
Travel Agent Day is designed to bring awareness and appreciation to Travel Agents by dedicating a special day to celebrate and recognize the profession. ACTA loves Travel Agents and the work they do throughout the year. So what were we doing to show some appreciation?
