helloworld announces details for ‘Fares @ the Fair’, the first training session in a new national program available to its network of agents. Focusing primarily on airline products, the complimentary training program will be hosted in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne over five dates in June.

Julie Primmer, Head of Branded Network at helloworld, says there has already been a strong response from agents and suppliers.

“Over the last few months we have seen some major shifts in the airline industry, including alterations to alliances, fare structures and combinations, plus a range of new processes. Our ‘Fares @ the Fair’ training program ensures that our consultants, owners and managers, have the latest information at their fingertips to meet their customers’ needs. Our training events promote excellence in product knowledge and sales techniques,” says Ms Primmer.

‘Fares @ the Fair’ is supported by Qantas Airways, Thai Airways International, United Airways, Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Finnair, Garuda Indonesia, Etihad Airways, Emirates Airline and Air Tickets.

“Together with our airline partners, we look forward to hosting ‘Fares @ the Fair’ to provide our helloworld managers and consultants with the best possible training. The events also feature presentations from our airline partners and invaluable networking opportunities,” says Ms Primmer.

The ‘Fares @ the Fair’ events in June are one of three national product training programs to be conducted by helloworld throughout 2014. The other national training events are:

  • ‘Landscape’ which focuses on land products in a series of events to be held in July; and
  • ‘Sight & Sea Sales’ which focuses on coach and cruise products with events to be held in August.

“This new training format enables our helloworld agents to select the events most relevant to their specific agency requirements. Our national training programs provide a chance to network, gain confidence through improved product knowledge and ultimately increase sales. I encourage our agents to register quickly to guarantee a spot,” says Ms Primmer.

Registrations for ‘Fares @ the Fair’ have been extended to Friday 9 May, 2014.
