More than 100 Australian travel agents attended a Qantas Holidays gala event in California over the weekend that lavished the travel wholesaler’s top sales people for the year.
Held at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, the Global High Achievers Awards ceremony was hosted by Richard Wilkins and featured entertainment from ARIA-Award winning singer Missy Higgins, Mickey Mouse and his beau, Minnie.
It capped off a weeklong program for the agents that is known as the ultimate Qantas Holiday event of the year, e-Travel Blackboard reported.
“Tonight, it is important to reinforce that all of you here in the room are instrumental to the success of Qantas Holidays. We value your ongoing commitment and support of our product,” said Qantas Holidays national sales manger, Bettina Barker.
“Qantas Holidays have for many years provided programmes that aim to recognise and reward consultants for their hard work and loyalty, through a range of benefits exclusive to each achiever.”
Qantas Holidays is part of the Jetset Travelworld Group. It is the only major Australian travel wholesaler that can offer frequent flyer points on the purchase of its holidays.
