‘I’ve Got A Golden Ticket!’ AFTA’s Qantas surprise

July 19, 2017 Headline News No Comments Email Email

Anyone who remembers the film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory – or its sequel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – will recall the surprise and delight of finding the Golden Ticket. Well, a real Golden Ticket now exists and someone in the travel industry is going to win it.

The win will happen this Saturday at AFTA’s National Travel Industry Awards (NTIA) Gala Dinner in Sydney.

The Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) and Qantas have joined forces to present the first ever NTIA Golden Ticket Giveaway.

In celebration of AFTA and Qantas’ longstanding partnership and the airline’s new Dreamliner service, every Gala Dinner ticket holder has been entered into a draw to win big.

So what’s the prize? In order to surprise guests, prizes are being kept hush-hush, but AFTA assures that it will be well worth the wait.

Attendees are also encouraged to get a happy-snap with Qantas’ mascot Matilda at the media wall and share it using the hashtags #Qantas(heart)sNTIA and #NTIA2017.

If you are a keen snapchat user, Qantas will also have a snapchat filter live throughout the night. Jump on and share your NTIA journey.

The NTIA Gala Dinner will be held this Saturday 22 July in the Grand Ballroom of Sydney’s brand new International Convention Centre, Darling Harbour.

And finally, if you’re unfamiliar with Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the film tells the story of Charlie Bucket, who wins a Golden Ticket and visits Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with four other children from around the world.

Here’s Charlie Bucket and Joe singing “I’ve Got A Golden Ticket”.
