Yesterday the Magellan Travel Group kicked off their 2017 National Conference and boy are we jealous we couldn’t make it!
With more than 300 members and preferred partners gathering at Perth Crown Towers, the next three days are set to be Magellan’s biggest and best conference yet.
Andrew Macfarlane, MD Magellan Travel Group, said, “We are grateful for the commitment that so many have made to be a part of our 2017 conference here in Perth.
“Our agenda over the coming days is full of great news and new initiatives that will powerfully benefit our members and preferred partners alike.”
For some, the conference kicked off early on Wednesday morning with a traditional game of golf. Sponsored once again by Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, this year was 18 holes at the Wembley Golf Course, Ambrose Estate.
For others, a slightly more relaxed schedule as they joined Hyatt Hotels & Resorts who sponsored the fabulous ‘Walk a little, Eat a little, Drink a little’ afternoon walking tour of Perth.
In the late afternoon, the ten new members that have joined the Group since Conference last year were welcomed by the Magellan Board at a cocktail event.
Macfarlane added, “ There are great things ahead for these members with Magellan, a niche, $1B Group of 130 of the best Agencies in the land.”
He used this brief address to highlight the key fundamentals of the Group and the benefit that these will drive to members 365 days a year. He specifically highlighted the importance of transparency, independence and profiting for members – not from members.
Wednesday evening saw the conference officially begin with Qantas Holidays and Tourism WA sponsoring a spectacular Welcome Event held in the Crystal Club Room at Crown Towers.
The venue showcased unimpeded views of the Perth city skyline, plus guests were treated to a stunning sunset over the Swan River.
