APT has announced all the winners of its #APTtheBest trade campaign, which saw the award winning luxury travel operator celebrate its recent trifecta of NTIA awards by offering two exciting industry incentives every week during September.
For travel agencies, APT granted special entry into a weekly draw for every booking made and deposited, with a $1,500 marketing voucher up for grabs for the weekly winner. Consultants were invited to send in their #APTtheBest photos and entries in a bid to win one of five luxury river cruises.
Agencies that received an APT $1,500 marketing voucher were: helloworld Camberwell, Flight Centre Birkdale, Spencer Travel Southside, Travel Associates Brice and Turner WA and Champagne Travel.
Consultants who received either a Europe or Mekong river cruise in return for their outstanding and creative #APTtheBest snaps were: Scarlett Trewavis, Flight Centre Watergardens; Jennifer Bishop, Your Travel & Cruise; Tegan McCarthy, We Know Travel Orange; Stacey Moffitt, RACQ Maroochydore; and Brigette Richards, Champagne Travel.
APT’s Commercial Manager Retail, Susan Haberle, said, “The industry has really got behind this campaign and we’ve been overwhelmed by the volume and standard of the entries. We would like to say thank you to everyone that entered and to congratulate all our deserving winners. The best news of course is that while the competition and incentive might be over, there are still two weeks left for agents to take advantage of our celebration savings.”
