Dana Braun Certified as WOW Specialist by AIC Hotel Group

[PRESS RELEASE] Oak Park, MI. – Dana Braun of Dana Braun Travel Design + Aisle Away Destination Weddings is now certified by AIC Hotel Group— the experiential brand offering limitless travel experiences; from luxury to refined all-inclusive vacations — as a WOW Specialist.

Held at Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta from November 5-7, 2023, the Gold Magellan award-winning WOW—the Weddings on the Water Travel Advisor Specialist Program— supports and arms distinguished destination wedding travel advisors with any and all essential tools needed to sell all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels of Mexico and the Dominican Republic, and UNICO 20º87º hotel Riviera Maya. In addition to the WOW specialist training program, a secondary certification, Ishq Rocks Specialist, was offered to travel advisors looking to be experts in booking South Asian destination weddings.

Personally hand-picked to participate in the WOW Specialist program, Dana Braun was among an exclusive group of agents who had to meet well defined requirements to be eligible for the program. Being a WOW Specialist allows agents to orchestrate the best possible experience for wedding couples and their guests. Dana Braun’s extensive training and first-hand experience allow her to understand the uniqueness of the products offered at each hotel.

As part of her training Dana was walked through each and every step of the wedding booking process, providing her with exclusive knowledge to better serve her customers. Additionally, Dana personally met with the on-site wedding coordinators, allowing the unique opportunity to establish a strong working relationship with the team that puts it all together on-site.

With the WOW Specialist program and the innovative All In Weddings website— a new staple in the destination wedding planning process— the brand prides itself in creating more than just a cookie-cutter program. It has created a platform that lends to its success ranging from brand education, extensive sales & marketing support, as well as a lead generation system.
