Excite, Visit Britain mark marriage with garden party

London, UK


It wasn’t quite Buckingham Palace but Excite Holidays and Visit Britain hosted a garden party to remember in Sydney last night (Tuesday).


Held at the Homestead in Centennial Park, the VIP event saw more than 50 key agents in attendance, enjoying some British-themed entertainment, food and drink. 


The gin and tonic cocktail station was particularly busy as agents enjoyed a lolly station filled with British sweets and cupcakes, grazing station, lawn games and musicians playing acoustic versions of classic hits from the 70's, 80's and 90s by British artists. Many agents had their photo taken in a London-style red telephone box.



The event was organised to celebrate Excite Holidays' partnership with VisitBritain, including two bespoke destination guides which are housed on Excite's content platform, Excite Engage.


A new nine-page guide, entitled ‘Discover Great Britain’, serves as both a selling and knowledge tool for agents, providing great ideas for things to do across England, Scotland and Wales, including restaurants, shopping, culture and special events.


The guide also has essential information on how to get around Britain, highlighting the excellent road and rail system that enables visitors to travel the country at their own pace.



Accommodation options are also listed, including hotels in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Cardiff.


The winner of the lucky door prize was Belinda Farrelly, who collected a $500 Excite Holidays voucher to spend on herself.


Those present included: George Christakis, Commercial Manager AUS & NZ, VisitBritain; William Gabb, Regional Manager at Excite Holidays; Brooke Hobson, Business Development Manager at Excite Holidays; Belinda Brown, Business Development Manager at Excite Holidays; Cinzia Giacchi, Marketing Manager at Excite Holidays and Tim Bowrey, Strategy & Brand Marketing Manager at Excite Holidays.
