STAR Edinburgh shone brightly...

...as you'll see from the pictures in this week's SPAA Today! It was a great networking event, with an impressive group of Associate partners in attendance, and great fun too - with some fantastic prizes won! Watch out for the report and picture gallery at www.spaa.org later today.

And talking of Members and Associates getting together - we're delighted to welcome 2 new travel agent members to SPAA and no fewer than 7 new Associates. It's all about people, and it's all about communication ... I wonder who said that? Joining us are - from Brilliant Travel, Linda Pyle, and from the Travel Network, Stephanie Stark, along with new Associates - American Airlines, Atlantic Airways, Azamara Club Cruises, ITC Classics, Lounge Pass, P&O Cruises and Westjet. Welcome to all!

It's immensely sad to have to say, for a second week - our thoughts are with all those touched by tragedy, this time on the Germanwings aircraft. I'm sure this terrible event will bring sensible new safeguards, though, and as I said last week, there's nothing more effective in building understanding and respect than travel. What we do, every working day, is important and we mustn't let it be curtailed in any circumstances.

Hi all...

I trust you are all well?  Hopefully, the winter is now behind us.   This newsletter is jam packed with prizes and educational opportunities and, of course, lots of information from our associates.

SPAA are busy finalising details for our first STAR (Scottish Travel Agents Road Show) event of the year and I really hope to meet as many of you as possible.  If you are able to come along to The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Edinburgh on Thursday 26 March, please emailjhogarth@spaa.org to register your place.  It promises to be a great evening with lots of opportunities to network and we have some amazing prizes up for grabs such as flights to Dubai...
