WorldVentures Wins Three 2015 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards


(Plano, TX—September 15, 2015)—WorldVentures™, the leading international direct seller of vacation club memberships, claimed not one but three 2015 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for excellence in marketing and advertising. Honors included a gold award for the DreamTrips™ travel app launch and silver recognition for the DreamTrips and Welcome Trips campaigns, respectively.

“These are the sixth, seventh and eighth honors of the year for WorldVentures and affirmation of the artistry and creative vision among our team,” said Chris Schultenover, WorldVentures vice president of marketing communications and creative services. “We are proud to be recognized alongside peers by an iconic industry publication such as Travel Weekly. With our 10th anniversary just three months away, it’s been an incredible year, and the DreamTrips brand continues to elevate WorldVentures on the global stage.”

As the company’s signature product, DreamTrips are exclusively priced, curated group vacations to global destinations. Conversely, Welcome Trips introduce new members to the DreamTrips experience through discounted travel to U.S. destinations, complete with a dedicated host, parties, excursions and a few surprises. Bridging the two products is the DreamTrips app, which allows users to browse and book vacations, upload and share trip photos, exchange travels stories and more.

With entries from around the world, the Magellan Awards is the premier program honoring a broad range of industry segments, including Hotels and Resorts, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Car Rental Companies. WorldVentures won in the Tour Operators category.

“The creativity that travel industry marketers and designers display to inspire travel and enhance the travel experience continues to impress our expert judges and readers,” said Arnie Weissmann, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly. “This year’s winners continue to raise the bar, establishing themselves as, not just the most talented and creative people in the travel industry, but among the most creative and talented of any industry.”

The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a panel representing the most accomplished leaders in the travel industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another, instead they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the long experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or no winners at all.
