The Importance of Attending Discovery Day
Last updated on April 5th, 2023
Completing your due diligence includes attending Discovery Day
With a multitude of franchise opportunities available today, finding the right franchise fit has never been more important. One of the final steps in any franchise education process is attending Discovery Day to get a glimpse into the corporate values and culture you’re considering joining forces with. We call our franchisees, Franchise Partners, because we believe that franchise ownership is truly a partnership. When attending Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ Discovery Day, we emphasize that this is the opportunity to confirm that we’re the right match for each other as we continue to grow our franchise throughout North America.
What is Discovery Day?
After spending weeks having regular calls with one of our Franchise Development Managers and making your way through our seven-step franchise education process you’ll have a strong understanding of the Expedia franchise opportunity. At this point, if both parties feel Expedia CruiseShipCenters may be the perfect fit for you, we’ll invite you to join us in beautiful Vancouver, Canada to spend the day with us at Discovery Day. It’s the last step in the process and arguably the most important stage before making the decision to proceed with owning and operating your own Expedia CruiseShipCenters location. Attending Discovery Day is the culmination of your education on the Expedia franchise opportunity and it marks the final step in your due diligence. By the end of the day you’ll
have a complete understanding of our franchise
opportunity and whether it’s the right match
for your business ownership goals.
Why Attend Discovery Day?
While in Vancouver you’ll meet our dedicated 125+ member corporate support team who are committed to providing the best tools and systems for our Franchise Partners to lead and develop their team of Vacation Consultants with so that they can best serve their customers. We strive for Discovery Day to be an interactive day and encourage you to ask those burning questions throughout the day to ensure that we’ve filled any gaps in your due diligence so that you have all the information needed to make an informed decision. During the day we’ll also have an opportunity to learn more about your background and also learn more about what motivates you in your quest to build a profitable and valuable business.
What to Expect When Attending Discovery Day
When you join us for Discovery Day, we’ll spend a full day together with presentations from our President, Matthew Eichhorst, members of our Leadership Team as well as Subject Matter Experts. This informative day is designed to be interactive and affirm everything you’ve learned so far and allow us to dive deeper into our proven system. Another important element of Discovery Day is meeting with you in the form of a break out meeting and discussing your interest in Expedia CruiseShipCenters in greater detail along with your aspirations as a Franchise Partner. At the end of the day, we like to end our time together with an in-house social with members from the corporate team and fellow attendees for a complete introduction to our Stronger.Together® culture at Expedia CruiseShipCenters.
How to Prepare for Discovery Day
1. Complete your research – Completing all six steps in our education process prior to attending Discovery Day will ensure you have a strong foundation and understanding of the Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchise opportunity.
2. Make a trip out of it – With our head office based in Vancouver, Canada, it’s a great excuse to extend your stay following Discovery Day and enjoy all the incredible sights our world-class city has to offer. Perhaps a cruise is in your future?
