How this agency became the first ‘Travel Champions’


It’s official: Globus family of brands has crowned its first ever Travel Champions

With the popularity of our weekly Traveltease quiz, we know that travel agents love to have their travel knowledge put to the test. 

 

Globus family of brands did just that this week at their inaugural “Travel Champions” gameshow. It was a huge night filled canapes, cocktails and of course fierce competition to take out the coveted title.  

 

 

The evening kicked-off in style with a chic party at Urban Winery, before moving on to the main event - the gameshow to end all gameshows - at a purpose-built studio in Sydney’s Entertainment Quarter.

 

It was straight down to business with ten teams of two taking to the stage, where TV presenter James Kerley put them through their paces, quizzing contestants on a variety of topics including all things geography, travel and GFOB.

 

The gameshow’s first round featured travel agents from all states and territories across Australia, including representatives from Flight Centre, Bicton Travel, Helloworld, TravelManagers, italk travel, Devonport Travel & Cruise and RAA.

 

 
After six gruelling rounds of tough questions, it was Liam Lavery and Pat McKinnon from Flight Centre Tailormade Ballarat that claimed the top gong, taking home a trophy; an amazing night out for their whole agency (on GFOB); but most importantly, the prestige of being dubbed the best in the business.

 

Following the team competition, it was then time to determine who would take out GFOB’s inaugural Travel Consultant Champion. Five individual consultants were randomly selected from the VIP audience, with the remaining five contestants coming from the top five teams that competed in round one. 

 

Following the same trivia format, it was neck and neck between three contestants, but ultimately it was Rowan Muller from Flight Centre Marion that triumphed, scoring himself a luxurious river cruise for two with Avalon Waterways.

 

Overall, it was a fun night and brilliant way to get agents connected, engaged and educated on the brand.
