Excite hosts exclusive Great Britain event

In Excit-ing news (sorry), wholesaler Excite Holidays hosted a VIP event for 50 key agents at the Centennial Homestead last Tuesday to bring them the essence of Great Britain.

The venue was decked out with a London style red phone booth, 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.

Here’s a few snaps from the event.
