The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority recently joined forces with Viva! Holidays/Qantas Holidays and Hawaiian Airlines to host 11 Australian travel agents on the ultimate twin centre famil.
The red carpet was rolled out for a whirlwind four nights in Las Vegas, where agents experienced the famously celebrated and more unknown attractions of the destination. The group then went on to spend two nights rewinding and relaxing in the cool Hawaiian sea breeze.
The group consisted of representatives from Casula Travel Services, Travel and Tour Hunters, St Leonards Travel Centre, Italktravel Warners Bay, Northwest Cruise & Travel, Anywhere Travel, We Know Travel, Qantas Holidays/Viva!, Helloworld Mt Gambier, Helloworld Goulborn and Home Travel Company.
The famil achieved its overall objective, which was to educate a selection of Australian travel agents on the diverse experiences available in both destinations, whilst also positioning and showcasing Las Vegas and Hawaii as the perfect twin centre holiday, mixing the fast pace of Las Vegas with Hawaiian infused relaxation.
The trip also provided agents the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the attractions already popular with Australians and also potential new product offerings. This in turn has armed them with a more overall in-depth understanding of both destinations, which they can now relay onto their customers and better sell Las Vegas and Hawaii to the Australian market.
