Smartflyer Australia was represented at Smartflyer’s CORE event in Nashville USA in January, held at the newly opened Four Seasons Hotel Nashville.
Smartflyer CORE is heavily rooted in the collaborative spirit, and this year’s event was all about celebrating a collective momentum toward the future, with Smartflyer’s strongly established pillars of Collaboration, Originality, Relationships, and Education.
Several functions were held during the three-day event, including a study hall where Smarties and partners took a dive into working collaboratively. Participating were 150 Smartflyer advisors and 60 hospitality brands. All up, 2,265 meetings were held where Smarties learned about current and future products.

The event culminated with a “disco cowboy” themed party.
Australian Smartflyer advisor Marienne Guberina was announced as part of the Smartflyer ONE group of top producers globally in 2022. To qualify as a SmartFlyer ONE Top Producer in 2022, the minimum revenue threshold was US$5.8 million in actualised sales with several agencies producing over US$15 million in sales. Of the fourteen producers in this select group, Guberina was the only non-USA-based travel advisor.
“It’s been inspiring to witness the evolution of this program over the past seven years,” said Erina Pindar, COO and Managing Partner of SmartFlyer.
“We have created space for a moderate rise in the number of agencies affiliating with our network, but ultimately, the increased production of each individual advisor has spurred the organic growth of our community. This year, of the 250+ agents powered by our platform, the average annual revenue was US$1.7 million. Even more notably, 64 affiliates achieved over US$2 million in actualised sales.”
