Pictures: Helloworld frontliners kicks off in Fiji!

Helloworld has kicked off its 2018 Frontliners Forum in fabulous Fiji!

Agents and preferred partners were welcomed with a bang at Sandy Point last night, marking the first time the conference has been held overseas.

181108-4723

Held from 8 – 11 November, the forum will take place at Denarau Convention Centre, with over 500 of Helloworld Travel’s front-line agents, preferred partners and suppliers gathering together for four days of learning, personal development, networking and celebrating.

Sponsored by Tourism Fiji and Fiji Airways Conference, sessions will run across Friday and Saturday with presentations from the Helloworld Travel management team, Keynote speakers and featuring breakout sessions and interaction from preferred partners.

Just to make all those unable to attend a little more jealous, delegates will enjoy a dinner tomorrow night at KORO, an exclusive adults-only area designed around two stunning beachfront pools, with exclusive performances from Furnace and the Fundamentals .

Saturday evening will bring all of the glitz and glamour of the Gala Dinner, taking place at the Denarau Island Convention Centre to reward and recognise outstanding achievements by frontline staff.

The awards will cover categories for Consultant of the Year, Top Revenue Award, Rising Star Award and Achievement Awards.

Plus, a keynote address from Tim Robards, one of Australia’s most chiselled and recognisable faces (and bodies) known for his dedication to health, fitness, clean living and of course for being Australia’s first Bachelor!

Joining Tim at the podium across the event, will be Mick Colliss, Kirk Peterson and MC Steve Jacobs.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, pre famils have seen agents take on a Feejee Experience with Qantas Holidays & viva! Holidays or to the Sun Coast featuring Suva, Rakiraki, and Lautoka, or the Coral Coast featuring Warwick, The Pearl Resort & Spa and Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort & Spa.

Post-famils will whisk agents to Savusavu, Mamanuca Islands or on a Blue Lagoon Cruise.

Oh, and did we mention we’ve gotten our hands on the first round of pictures???
