Sneaky social posts from Flight Centre’s Global Gathering

Hannah Edensor

The spectacular Flight Centre Global Gathering has been rolling on for the past couple of days in Hawaii, and we’re absolutely green with envy looking at all our Instagram posts.

The #fctgglobalgathering has been raking in the social posts, from the glamorous ball gowns to the in-destination adventures, so we figured we’d join in the party and share some of the fun!

Not that we were invited or anything, *cough cough*.

Over 3000 of the company’s top achievers are celebrating at the FCTG Global Gathering Hawaii event, representing the very best of the company worldwide and their outstanding achievements during the 2016/17 financial year.

A-lister celeb guests include Jane Lynch as MC, Bill Clinton as keynote speaker, and performances by Mark Ronson and Duran Duran. What a party!

And if Instagram is anything to go by, 2018 Global Gathering will be held in Berlin, Germany!
