Visit Greater Palm Springs Invites Travel Professionals to Chill Like a Pro

(Rancho Mirage, CA) September 15, 2021 – Visit Greater Palm Springs invites travel professionals to experience the laid-back lifestyle found in Greater Palm Springs and become an “Agent of Chill” during the 9th annual Travel Professionals Appreciation Month, October 1-31, 2021.

“With our Safer Together, Greater Together Pledge, we are ready to welcome travel professionals to Greater Palm Springs,” said Gary Orfield, Director of Tourism Development for Visit Greater Palm Springs. “We invite our travel professional partners to come out and experience firsthand why their clients should “chill” in Greater Palm Springs.”

“Agent of Chill” is the title given to all travel professionals who visit Greater Palm Springs and learn to practice the “chillosophy” shared by each of the destination’s nine resort cities and by each and every guest. Travel professionals will experience what their guests will experience: enjoying the foods they enjoy and chilling like guests chill. And with that—fully chilled, fully aware and fully impressed—the travel professional becomes an AGENT Of CHILL: an agent for business for Greater Palm Springs.
