Pro Travel Network Announces Largest Training Event in Company History

FRESNO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 22, 2007 -- On January 25th, over 500 home-based agents of Pro Travel Network, Inc. (OTCBB: PTVL) will set sail for the Bahamas aboard the Carnival ship "Elation" for the largest training event in the company's history. This five-day international training event will allow agents to meet with company executives to learn more about the growth of the industry as well as the personal development of their business. On Saturday evening the company will host a Shareholder Only meeting to update them on the most recent success of the company.

The company has partnered with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) to deliver CLIA training at the event. CLIA training is required throughout the Travel Industry for all agents to receive their CLIA Travel Agent ID card. Tom Cogan, CLIA's Director of Training, will be the guest speaker and trainer.

Carnival Cruise Lines will also be training Pro Travel Network agents on their products during the event. Carnival is one of Pro Travel Network's top supplier partners, and Pro Travel has more than doubled its bookings with Carnival in 2006 over the previous year.

"This is an exciting time to be part of Pro Travel Network," comments Paul Henderson, Chief Executive Officer. "We are thrilled at the overwhelming response of our agents, and look forward to a tremendous event at sea."

This event follows a Toronto, Canada Regional training event on January 16th. The company has successfully expanded the business within the last year to include Canadian agents, and has a large footprint into North America.
