One of AccorHotel’s corporate clients, Ina Choy, Travel Consultant at Wing On Tours will be driving around Sydney in style in her new $30,000 Peugeot 208 car, which she won last night at AccorHotels Sydney Showcase at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.
Ina was one of over 800 travel industry delegates who attended the expo, with five of the lucky attendees winning a key that had the potential to unlock the door for the Peugeot.
Host Melissa Doyle and Channel 7’s Larry Emdur gathered the five finalists next to the Peugeot and Ina was the second to step forward to see if her key unlocked the car door. It did. Lights went flashing, she was in a state of shock, winning the car just one week into her new job! She all but drove the car with her Wings on Tour team straight out of Sofitel Sydney Wentworth’s Grand Ballroom and into the night.
The Peugeot prize was one of a whole series of accommodation and travel prizes drawn during the evening. Other prizes awarded to lucky guests included two Qantas business class flights with accommodation for three nights at Pullman Park Lane and accommodation vouchers for properties across the region including destinations such as Manilla and New York.
Over 100 Accor delegates representing over 94 countries and nearly 3,800 hotels were on hand to discuss AccorHotel’s newest product – ranging from the new beach club at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa to new midscale Mercure Newcastle Airport and economy ibis Mackay Airport – with the travel industry.
Attendees were well entertained throughout the evening and a collection of Robert Oatley wines ensured that guests were fully hydrated.
