Australian Agents take a peek into Switzerland 2014

March 12, 2014 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

More than 200 agents from around Australia attended the Switzerland Tourism’s week-long Swiss Travel Experience roadshow last week.

Agents in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth met with and heard from key Swiss partners including Swiss International Airlines, Swiss Travel System, Zurich, Basel, Luzern, Titlis Rotair and Jungrau/Interlaken.

With a year on year 10% increase of Aussie visitors, the Swiss partners presented to agents a variety of existing and new attractions of their regions, which would interest Australian travellers looking to enhance their travel experiences. From unique cityscapes, lush sceneries and snowcapped mountain peaks to igloo spas, adventure activities and breathtaking panoramic rides, agents were wow-ed by stunning images of Switzerland throughout the event, which tied in with Switzerland Tourism’s theme for 2014, Vistas (Views).

Three agents from each city also won prizes at the end of the night, with the first place winners taking home vouchers for a holiday to Switzerland including five nights’ accommodation, a return flight and first class Swiss Passes. Jonica Gilbert of Cruise & International Specialist in Brisbane won a trip to Basel and Zurich; Peggy Chan of JVL Travel Service in Sydney won a trip to Luzern and Mount Titlis; Jacki Boyd from Qantas Holidays & Viva in Melbourne won a trip to Interlaken and Jungrau; and Vince Baker from Rail Tickets/Qantas Holidays in Perth won a trip to their choice of two locations in Switzerland.


Pictured below are some of the visiting Swiss Partners with Switzerland Tourism in Australia from L-R: Peter Lombardi (Swiss International Airlines), Mark Meier (Luzern), Tomoko Manriki (Rail Europe), Birgit Weingartner and Evelyn Lafone (Switzerland Tourism Sydney), Daniel Egloff (Basel), Daniela Fuchs (Jungrau, Top of Europe / Interlaken), Rayo Choksi (Titlis) and Fausto Zaina (Swiss Travel System).
