Agents are being given the chance to win places at the 2014 Brit Awards in a Royal Caribbean International peak booking period promotion.

Sixteen places are up for grabs in the incentive, a number of which require agents to nominate their colleagues in one of six categories for Royal’s own ‘B.R.I.T.S’ awards:

  • Best Breakthrough Act – best New to Selling Cruise agent
  • Best producer – best booker
  • Best Solo Female – best female travel agent
  • Best Solo Male – best male travel agent
  • Special Recognition – for commitment, dedication, enthusiasm
  • Critic’s Choice – best overall agent

Agents need to get a colleague to post a photo of them and 150 words on why they deserve to win their chosen category at the line’s Facebook page for agents at facebook.com/royalcaribbeantravelagents.

Agents can also win by booking and confirming a 2014 cruise that is part of the turn of year campaign between December 12 and February 12 to be entered into a prize draw to win one of 10 places – the other 10 tickets available.

Voting the favourite submissions runs until February 12. Winners will be determined by two equally weighted measurements – the number of votes each agent receives on Facebook and the number of votes they receive from a Royal Caribbean International judging panel.

The winning agents in the Royal B.R.I.T.S Awards receive:

  • One night’s accommodation in a four star hotel in London
  • Dinner and drinks in The VIP Club before the Brit Awards show and a live performance by one of the UK’s hottest musical artists
  • Level 1 VIP seats in The 02 Arena
  • After-show party at The VIP Club
  • Transport to and from their home

The line’s sales team will be visiting agencies accompanied by lookalikes of previous Brit Award winners such as Justin Timberlake and Will I Am.

Benefits that can be passed onto clients include discounts of up to £500, free parking and a free kids soda package on selected ex-UK sailings.

Head of trade sales Nicki Tempest-Mitchell said: “For all the agents out there who have dreamed of becoming a superstar, or at least sit next to one, this is your chance to make that dream a reality.

“If your colleague, friend or boss has standout selling skills, head to our Facebook page and tell us all about it.”
