Ovation Travel Group to Dramatically Increase West Coast Presence; Aanchal Gandhi Joins Ovation as Vice President to Lead Growth Efforts

Given Ovation Travel Group’s large existing book of luxury leisure and corporate business in New York and London, along with an enviable amount already in LA, we believe it is critical for us to have a heightened physical presence in California.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 14, 2020
Ovation Travel Group, one of the largest independently owned travel management and luxury leisure travel companies headquartered in the US, is today publicly unveiling its vision for expansion through a larger footprint in the western United States, where it will increase the number of independent advisors throughout the region. To develop and lead Ovation’s anticipated growth there, Beverly Hills-based Aanchal Gandhi is joining the company in the newly-created role of Vice President of Leisure and Independent Advisors, West Coast.
Advisor recruitment on the West Coast, along with the expansion initiatives, will be overseen by Ms. Gandhi, who officially joined the company on January 6. Having grown to become one of the largest US members of both Virtuoso and BCD, Ovation Travel Group is actively seeking to invite qualifying advisors – throughout the United States, and especially on the West Coast – to consider joining the fiercely independent organization. Qualifying advisors should possess travel expertise in luxury leisure, entertainment and/or corporate travel, the three prevailing travel disciplines for which Ovation is best known.
“Ovation Travel Group has long had a presence on the West Coast thanks to our increasing ranks of advisors specializing in our trio of core travel competencies who are already based there. As the number of advisors there continues to multiply, we are proud to further address their needs by formalizing our presence there. In turn, we have great expectations that our new Los Angeles area focus will ultimately rival our thriving operations in New York and London,” explained Paul Metselaar, CEO and Chairman of Ovation Travel Group. “As such, we are very pleased to cordially invite savvy travel advisors who are seeking a new home to consider joining us at Ovation.”
“Given Ovation Travel Group’s large existing book of luxury leisure and corporate business in New York and London, along with an enviable amount already in LA, we believe it is critical for us to have a heightened physical presence in California. That is why we are so thrilled to welcome Aanchal Gandhi into the Ovation family. She has burnished her reputation in the region through her expertise primarily in those segments, as well as working in entertainment travel, thus perfectly reflecting our company’s primary areas of focus,” noted Gina Gabbard, Senior Vice President of Leisure & Independent Advisors, and to whom Gandhi will report. “Aanchal will further develop and cultivate Ovation’s cadre of exceptional advisors throughout the West Coast, and she will also oversee our search for a regional headquarters in the Los Angeles area befitting both our invaluable advisors and clientele.”
Gandhi comes to Ovation directly from eleven years as an independent advisor with Protravel International. There, she served in its offices, first in New York, then in London, and most recently in Beverly Hills. In 2009, Gandhi was honored with Travel Agent magazine’s prestigious “30under30” award. As a millennial leader, she has worked extensively to champion this new generation of travel advisors in giving them a voice and seat at the table.
Prior to entering the travel industry, Gandhi was in equity sales for Goldman Sachs from 2004-2008. Born in Mumbai and raised in Hong Kong and Singapore, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Management Science from Tulane University in New Orleans.
“I am thrilled by the opportunity to help build a home for Ovation’s stellar reputation on the West Coast. As a true leader in travel, along with its incredibly professional, yet caring leadership team, Ovation is well poised to attract the exceptional caliber of talent necessary to fuel our growth,” stated Gandhi. “One of India’s most influential business leaders, Dhirubhai Ambani, once said, ‘If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.’ After making my dreams come true through my years as an independent advisor, I could not be more excited to help other travel advisors build their dreams as part of Ovation. My experience from Wall Street taught me to be attentive to the needs of my clients, and I look forward to serving my new clients – advisors from the West Coast – through my new role with Ovation.”

Ovation Travel Group Publicly Unveils New “Sunday in the City” Mini-FAMS in New York City for its Luxury Advisors

“Sunday in the City is the perfect opportunity for leading travel experts to discover the new flagship hotel, club and spa and truly understand all the meticulous details and offerings incorporated into this game-changing new brand.”

NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 22, 2019
Ovation Travel Group – one of the largest independently owned travel management and luxury leisure companies headquartered in the United States – today is publicly announcing an initiative designed for its travel advisors to experience some of New York City’s most buzz-worthy hotel properties. “Sunday in the City” is an educational program enabling Ovation’s luxury leisure advisors to enjoy mini-FAM experiences at a mix of hotels that are new, freshly renovated, rebranded or legendary in stature. After this year’s initial success of Ovation’s pilot program featuring several hotel properties, the program is being formalized for 2020.
“With the high number of Ovation clients who travel to New York, it is imperative that our advisors remain at the forefront of knowledge about the city’s impressive array of luxury hotel options,” stated Paul Metselaar, CEO and Chairman of Ovation Travel Group. “Sunday in the City accomplishes that objective in that it further empowers our advisors to make the most appropriate hotel recommendations based on their expertise. As a result, our clientele enjoys even greater peace-of-mind.”
“Sunday in the City has already been a major hit among our participating advisors, and they love getting a taste of the hospitality their clients will experience,” noted Gina Gabbard, Senior Vice President of Luxury and Independent Advisors. “In addition to providing overnight accommodations, each Sunday in the City includes a hotel-hosted cocktail reception for our advisors, a site inspection and dinner at one of the property’s premier restaurants. Then, on the following Monday morning, breakfast is served to our advisors before they depart to commence their week’s business. The overall opportunity allows them to further enrich their expertise.”
Gabbard added that among the five hotels already hosting Ovation’s Sunday in the City have been the InterContinental New York Barclay and The Langham New York. Both properties are two longstanding hotel partners with Ovation.
“We were thrilled to host Ovation Travel Group for Sunday in the City at The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue. Not only did it give us the opportunity to show these travel professionals the very best of our hotel, but we were able to showcase our neighborhood and the inside knowledge our Concierge team has about New York City as a destination,” explained Stephanie Younts, Senior Sales Manager, Travel Industry for The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue. “Ovation is a consistent source of strong business for The Langham and we were very excited to be able to further strengthen our relationship with this event.”
According to Gabbard, properties already scheduled to host upcoming Sundays in the City are Equinox Hotels, The Dominick and The Mark.
“Equinox Hotel, Hudson Yards, NYC is thrilled to partner with the world’s leading luxury travel group. Just as Ovation is focused on providing exceptional experiences and services, so too is Equinox Hotels as the brand aims to disrupt the hospitality industry and break barriers,” stated Chris Reed, Director of Sales & Marketing for the Equinox Hotel, Hudson Yards, NYC, Manhattan’s newest luxury lifestyle hotel centered on the principles of movement, nutrition and regeneration. “Sunday in the City is the perfect opportunity for leading travel experts to discover the new flagship hotel, club and spa and truly understand all the meticulous details and offerings incorporated into this game-changing new brand.”
Participating luxury leisure travel advisors from Ovation Travel Group have described how they – and ultimately their clients – benefit from each Sunday in the City.
“Sunday in the City is an invaluable educational program that offers a wonderful way to see and experience a top-tier hotel in New York City as your clients would. There are so many new and greatly refurbished hotels in this city, and the only way to understand them and their relevance to your client is to experience them directly,” explained Vicky Metcalfe, an Ovation travel advisor who has already participated in two of the events.
“I’ve found Sunday in the City to be above and beyond your normal site inspection. It’s experiencing every aspect of the property – from check-in to check-out, plus having two meals (dinner and breakfast) provides a good insight into the dining experience,” said Denese Senno, a luxury travel advisor with Ovation. “Also, it was nice to see the public areas both during the day and at night. It really helps to feel the vibe of the hotel.”

15 Ovation Travel Group Advisors and Leaders Accept Coveted Invitation to International Luxury Travel Market in Cannes, France

Each representative from Ovation has established a significant book of business serving affluent clients and maintains strong relationships with some of the world’s foremost luxury suppliers. ILTM Cannes always inspires us to be better.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 07, 2019
Fifteen Ovation Travel Group leaders and advisors are among the select group of US-based “travel buyers” (i.e. travel advisors) accepting one of luxury travel’s most coveted invitations by attending the 2019 International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM), it was announced today. Ovation is one of the largest independently owned travel management and luxury leisure travel companies headquartered in the United States. Gina Gabbard, Ovation’s Senior Vice President of Leisure & Independent Advisors will lead the delegation comprised of advisors from both the United States and the United Kingdom. ILTM Cannes convenes at Cannes’ Palais des Festivals et des Congrès this December 2-5.
“In Ovation’s continuing quest to provide the most extraordinary experiences to our discerning leisure clientele, it is imperative that our exceptional advisors remain way ahead of the curve in knowing all of the breakthroughs and innovations in the luxury travel space,” noted Paul Metselaar, CEO and Chairman of Ovation Travel Group. “That is why we actively seek out vital opportunities to participate in globally-recognized events like ILTM. More than simply discovering the next ‘big thing’ in luxury travel, our advisors attend ILTM to further solidify existing relationships with key suppliers, while forging new ones. The biggest beneficiaries are our clients, who have the peace-of-mind in knowing that we are ‘your trusted travel partner.’”
ILTM in Cannes bills itself as “the ultimate global meeting in the annual luxury travel calendar.” Each member of Ovation’s ILTM contingent received an invitation to attend the event. Prior to receiving their invitations, advisors had to first meet stringent requirements ensuring their bona fides in serving affluent leisure clients.
“Ovation is very proud to once again have a substantial presence at ILTM Cannes as we bring along some of our leading luxury leisure advisors,” Gabbard stated. “Each representative from Ovation has established a significant book of business serving affluent clients and maintains strong relationships with some of the world’s foremost luxury suppliers. ILTM Cannes always inspires us to be better.”
In addition to Gabbard and Tina Rose, Managing Director of Ovation Travel Group in the United Kingdom, Ovation Travel Group’s delegation represents a mix of individuals who are veterans of ILTM and those who are attending for the first time:
“ILTM Cannes holds a permanent place in my calendar every December, as it’s one of my most favorite shows of the year,” declared Judy Stein, President of The Stein Collective, an affiliate of Ovation Travel Group. “The social and educational components at ILTM are both paramount, which is a perfect combination. Here I am able to spend quality time with so many friends and key players in the travel industry worldwide, yet at the same time, I always leave Cannes with a wealth of new knowledge gained throughout the week, forging great new relationships along the way. I would say it’s a ‘win/win’ on every level!’”
“This is my third time at ILTM Cannes and I always look forward to the camaraderie and quality of the attendees,” explained Laurie Robinson, Luxury Travel Advisor, Ovation Travel Group. “Top tier luxury products, the best of the best for new product introduction and updates on old favorites assist me in scoping out the luxury market for my clients. I very much look to this show for new destinations and technologies. It is a wonderful show to really network in person, as well as to catch up, meet and connect with the people that you will have at your fingertips for that extra special luxury trip or client.”
“Since this will be my first time attending ILTM Cannes. I’m looking forward to learning about new luxury properties and discovering lesser known boutique hotels,” stated Jessica Levy, Luxury Travel Consultant, Ovation Travel Group.
“Attending this show provides the opportunity to find more destinations and experiences to share with my clients. The show gives plenty of exposure to destinations that are off the beaten path and less known to Americans. In addition to this, I will be meeting with hoteliers and destination management companies that I book frequently for clients, thus building and strengthening our existing relationships.”
“I personally think the most important thing about this business is networking – being able to put a face to a name is super helpful when speaking to a vendor or supplier over email. When you need to clear space at a hotel or need a special favor for a client and you know the director of sales or general manager, it will get you further,” asserted first-time attendee Marielle Rishty, Senior Luxury Travel Advisor for Ovation Travel Group. “Putting your name and face out there and making yourself known to people in the industry can only help you grow your business, and attending ILTM will put my name on people’s radar. Being there shows my status as an advisor and the company I represent.”
“ILTM provides a great opportunity to meet everyone in a short window under one roof, which really helps make it easy,” said Andrew Steinberg, Luxury Travel Concierge, Modern Travel Inc., an affiliate of Ovation Travel Group. “I am looking forward to ILTM to meet new suppliers and learn more. I am hoping to uncover that great tour operator or meet the owner of that small bespoke hotel that is not yet on the radar. To better represent my clients so they have the best experience possible, attending ILTM is about finding the best of the best for them by forging relationships with new partners while strengthening my current relationships with existing partners.”

Ovation Travel Group Welcomes Scores of Established and New Independent Advisors to Its Growing Ranks

Whether they are veteran advisors or new to our industry, each of the individuals who have joined us has infused Ovation with even more vitality and an unparalleled level of competency and expertise that benefits our growing clientele. As a result, client satisfaction has never been higher.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 28, 2019
Ovation Travel Group, one of the largest independently owned travel management companies headquartered in the US, today announced that since the beginning of 2018, its growing leisure travel services division has attracted 24 Principal Independent Advisors (IAs) representing more than 40 advisors in both the United States and the United Kingdom who are now part of Ovation. While most are long established and respected advisors who opted to migrate to Ovation from other agencies, the luxury division has also succeeded in attracting aspiring advisors by working with them to develop their business.
The vast majority of those advisors have come aboard since Gina Gabbard and Tina Rose joined the company fifteen months ago (Gabbard is Ovation’s Senior Vice President of Leisure & Independent Advisors, while Rose serves as Ovation’s Managing Director in London).
“There are two major factors on why some of the most successful and renowned travel advisors are switching to Ovation Travel Group: their ease of access to our entire leadership team coupled with our organization’s fierce independence within the industry,” explained Paul Metselaar, Chairman & CEO of Ovation. “These advisors value what we provide, along with our Virtuoso affiliation, and we value all that they are contributing. Whether they are veteran advisors or new to our industry, each of the individuals who have joined us has infused Ovation with even more vitality and an unparalleled level of competency and expertise that benefits our growing clientele. As a result, client satisfaction has never been higher.”
As Ovation Travel Group celebrates its 35th anniversary, Metselaar explained that the gains in its IA roster position the company for stronger growth within the luxury leisure marketplace. “One of the hallmarks of Ovation Travel Group’s first 35 years has been our ability to proudly tell each of our valued clients that we are ‘your trusted travel partner,’” he noted. “Instead of serving as a mere platitude, it’s a philosophy that our leadership lives and breathes – not just with the clients we proudly serve, but also with the trusted advisors that we think of like family.”
Some of the veteran luxury travel advisors Ovation has attracted shared their experiences on why they joined, how they fared with their transition into the organization and what it has meant for their individual businesses:
Fiona Bayne (London, UK)“Upon joining Ovation, their focus on making clients happy becomes very clear, and it makes them very easy to work with because we are working towards the same goal. It’s our knowledge and commitment which keeps clients coming back, and the support we receive from Ovation allows us to keep improving our service and makes a great working atmosphere.”
Robert A. Goldstein, CTC (New York, NY)“Josh Greenberg and I have been at Ovation since October of 2018 – a major move and one we are extremely happy to have accomplished. Our transition was seamless since Ovation’s management couldn’t have done more to make sure we had a smooth start. We joined a company with an extremely helpful support staff and a great crowd of Independent Advisors who have not only been most welcoming, but also willing to share ideas and insights.”
Victoria Metcalfe (New York, NY)“I was delighted to have the opportunity to join Ovation Travel Group as an IA last August. Having worked with several very reputable agencies over the past thirty-some years, I can honestly say that I have never worked with a more professional team of advisors, managers and support staff. As advisors on the front line, we are provided with all the tools we need to guide our clients towards great leisure adventures and experiences, plus ensuring them a safe and seamless trip in the process. My clients have been consistently happy with the work I am able to do here, and that makes me happy as well.”
Karen Newton (London, UK)“Since joining Ovation in December, I could not feel more at home with such a great team. The company is very professional and totally hands-on. It has great people and a great atmosphere.”
Marielle Rishty (New York, NY)“One of the many reasons I chose to join Ovation over other agencies is the strong relationships it has with our partners and suppliers. Once hoteliers see I come from Ovation, I have noticed how they are able to move around reservations and clear space when I come to them with a request during a busy period. Our clients are prioritized when it comes to certain benefits like early check-ins, upgrades and other perks. I have a huge success rate when it comes to my clients being upgraded upon arrival at the hotel, but I have even experienced hotels offering upgrades in advance at the time of booking, just as a courtesy to Ovation. We are able to offer so much in terms of amenities that not every agency can. Inevitably, this makes me look better and more valuable in the eyes of my clients.”
Laurie Robinson (New York, NY)“Going to Ovation was the perfect move to provide even more service to our leisure clients because of the wonderful hands-on team. You just feel that your clients are cared for here. As an example, I had a booking for almost six months that included a Vatican tour, only to just learn that it was closed on the day our client built the itinerary around. We were really in a spot, but thanks to Ovation’s team, we were able to get that visit confirmed even though the Vatican was to be closed. It’s just one of many examples of the can-do attitude that occurs almost daily here.”
Harlee Rosenberg (New York, NY)“I am so thrilled to be part of the Ovation Family! Our move to Ovation was a great decision both professionally and personally. Everyone throughout the whole company has been so welcoming and supportive, making what we thought would be a very hard transition so much easier. Ovation had worked with us through every step of the move process from sending out announcements to our clients to getting us set up and started in a nice, bright comfortable office. Upon our arrival, we even received a training schedule to learn the ‘Ovation’ way.”
In addition to its ability to attract some of the industry’s most established luxury advisors, Ovation Travel Group has also prioritized bringing new talent into the industry. Among those advisors is:
Andrew Steinberg (New York, NY)“When I decided to finally pursue my passion and turn my love of exploring the world and planning trips into my next career, I turned to Ovation because they are recognized as an industry leader and innovator. As a family business, the foundation of family is incorporated into their DNA – Ovation still feels like a family, and when you join, you have the support surrounding you since the people are dedicated, kind and resourceful. Having great mentors who help with all potential issues and challenges is priceless, and their support is the best in the industry. Plus, Ovation has really helped introduce me to its supplier partners and provided immediate insights enabling me to build my business and provide excellence to my clients. I love coming to work!”
