Hey agents! The Hong Kong Tourism Board is asking a favour from you.
And no, it’s not a plead to fetch them their morning coffees.
We use the intern to do that for us, though we gave them $5 an hour and they’re yet to return.
Moving right along.
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has launched an updated version of its Hong Kong Specialist Club (HKSC) travel agent training program and is offering consultants the chance to take part in an upcoming famil.
All you have to do is register and complete the educational module.
HKTB Manager, trade marketing, and business tourism Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, Lisa Lee said the HKSC is a great way to encourage and motivate Aussie agents to learn more about Hong Kong.
As well as this, Lee wants agents to become more proactive in selling the destination.
“The HKSC also provides incentives to encourage enrollment and completion of HKTB’s online training course, Hong Kong Specialist.
“Overall increasing the number of destination ambassadors we have on the frontline and spreading the Hong Kong message further,” Lee said.
“Following a successful year in 2017, HKTB is stepping it up to provide even more benefits to HKSC members, including a welcome pack and special trade offers, and encouraging members to visit Hong Kong to experience what is on offer first hand,” she said.
The welcome pack will be exclusive to Hong Kong Specialist Club members visiting Hong Kong and can be applied for via HKS Club website prior to arrival.
The packs include:
- Big Bus Tours (single route 1-day ticket)
- Discover Hong Kong Tourist SIM card (five day pass)
- Dukling Harbour Cruise (single session)
- Hong Kong TramOramic Tour (golden ticket)
- MTR Tourist Day Pass
- Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck (standard ticket)
- Special trade offers for the traveller and their companion across hotels, attractions and tours
Agents are encouraged to complete the modules by July 2018 for the chance to win a place on the incentive trip in October 2018, with highlights to include Hong Kong’s Great Outdoor and the city’s cycling event, Cyclothon.
