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.

Not to mention the bespoke gin and tonic cocktail station with London Beefeater gin and custom branded cocktails.

Event was to celebrate Excite Holidays’ partnership with VisitBritain including two bespoke destination guides which are housed on Excites content platform, Excite Engage.

Lucky agent Belinda Ferrelly took home the grand prize: a $500 Excite Holidays voucher to spend on herself!

Here’s a few snaps from the event.
