Excite announces new resort campaigns, delivers ‘Finely Crafted’ Seattle experience for agents

Excite Holidays has announced two new campaigns with resorts, as well as giving agents the chance to experience Seattle Down Under.

Yesterday, the wholesaler launched its ‘A World Away From Your Every Day’ campaign in conjunction with Atlantis The Palm, Dubai. The campaign will run for two weeks, and showcase the hotel’s extravagant opulence and luxury offerings of its Imperial Club.

Excite has also announced the continuation of its ongoing partnership with One&Only resorts, with the release of its latest six-page guide, ‘Enjoy an Endless Summer with One&Only’.

Also launching yesterday, the campaign will run for two weeks, and follows Excite’s ‘Embark on a Winter Escape’ campaign. Agents can click here to download the guide.

The announcements come not long after more than 100 agents joined Excite and Visit Seattle to celebrate their curated eight-page guide ‘Seattle: Finely Crafted’ at The Morrison in Sydney last week.

As well as hearing from Excite’s Tim Bowrey and Brooke Hobson, and Visit Seattle’s Andrea Campbell, guests got the chance to personally experience exactly what makes this Pacific Northwest city so special.

Celebrations started with a seafood feast – a shucking station serving The Morrison’s signature oysters, which proved particularly popular among agents, before espresso martini and dessert stations sweetened the Seattle experience.

Paying tribute to the tunes that put Seattle on the musical map, producer and DJ Siila provided the evening’s entertainment with an acoustic set and DJ set, spinning classics from acts such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Macklemore.

The fun finally wrapped up with three lucky agents – Susie Taouk (The Ultimate Traveller) Kirsty McKenzie (TravelManagers) and Deya Sen (Flight Centre Business Travel Pitt St) each winning four nights’ luxury accommodation in the seaport city.
