Nearly 500 guests, including clients, business people, helloworld staff and suppliers, converged at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre on Thursday, 3 July, to celebrate the official launch of helloworld Mackay and helloworld Mt Pleasant, both formerly Harvey World Travel locations. 

John Cooney, Director at helloworld Mackay and Mt Pleasant, says the event was a huge success and a great way to celebrate the opening of the new-look stores.

“Moving across to the new helloworld brand has inspired our business and we wanted to celebrate the occasion in a big way. We were astounded by the amazing turnout from staff, loyal clients and travel industry professionals, some of whom travelled interstate just to be there. We were very happy with the way the event went and the feedback from our clients has been fantastic,” says Mr Cooney.

Mr Cooney says the event theme reflected the helloworld brand personality, focusing on experience and inspiration. Guests were treated to an around-the-world culinary journey, holiday images were projected onto the walls and an opportunity to participate in a ‘heads or tails’ quiz for a chance to win an APT European River Cruise, worth $20,000.

“This event gave us an opportunity to reflect on our history as we look towards the future for our business as helloworld Mackay and Mt Pleasant,” says Mr Cooney.
