G Adventures’ Change Makers Challenge is back for 2020

G Adventures’ Change Makers Challenge incentive is back for 2020 with a new mystery location!

The incentive challenges agents to focus on ‘changing people’s lives through travel’ and rediscover why they love selling travel in the process.

The 2020 Change Makers Challenge went live on 1 July and will run until 31 January 2020, culminating in the Change Makers Summit in April 2020 where more than 150 agents from the UK & Ireland, Central Europe, South Africa, Canada, the United States and Australia and New Zealand will meet along with G Adventures global purpose specialists from around the world.

Similar to the 2019 event, the summit will comprise of a week-long trip where agents see firsthand the positive impact community tourism has for local people, as well as destination highlights to help build their product knowledge. At the end of the trip, agents will have a full-day, immersive G Adventures experience and finish off the day with a party to end all parties.

There are three ways agents can earn their space at the Change Makers Summit in 2020. All agents will automatically receive one entry per ‘life changed’ (traveller booked) and there will be wildcard opportunities throughout 2019. Finally, the ‘social good’ entry submission category returns with a deadline of December 31st. This category rewards agents who tell a story about how they have done work that gives back to their community or the travel community at large.

“Our first Change Makers Summit was a huge success and the feedback from our agency partners was that seeing firsthand how community tourism can change the world was a truly life-changing experience,” David Green, vice president, G Adventures said.

“I’m thrilled to be able to bring more agents into our world, to experience the culture of our company and to help them understand why we do what we do.

“At G Adventures we change the lives of our travellers when they choose to explore the world with us and, as a social enterprise, we change the lives of local people in the destinations to which we travel. We can’t wait to show our agents the power they have to make a difference.”

Agents can go here or speak to their regional global purpose specialist for more information.
