Qantas Holidays Challenges Consultants in a Race Around Hong Kong

March 3, 2014 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

A total of 72 leisure consultants have put their navigation skills, stamina and team spirit to the test over four action-packed days [20-24 February] in Hong Kong, thanks to Qantas Holidays, Qantas Airways and Hong Kong Tourism Board.

The famil saw top-selling leisure consultants from helloworld, Harvey World Travel, Jetset, Travelworld and Travelscene divided into four teams. Each team each undertook a number of challenges, including: an Amazing Race-style Hong Kong Discovery Challenge; a Dim Sum Cook Off; a Lion Dance Contest; and a test of consultant’s courage at either Hong Kong Disneyland or Ocean Park. The event culminated with a Gala Dinner at Aberdeen Marina Club on Sunday [23 February], where Team Fuschia was crowned the victor by Andrew Clark, Regional Director at Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Fiona Dalton, Manager National Industry Sales at Qantas Holidays, says the famil represented a creative way to promote Hong Kong as a diverse destination while investing in learning and development for consultants.

“Our Race Around Hong Kong proved to be an incredible and fun way to showcase Hong Kong’s cosmopolitan vibe and its dozens of attractions to consultants. Our consultants travelled to every corner of this inspiring and thriving city, experiencing all its delights, having a great time and learning about the destination along the way,” says Dalton.

Dalton says that Qantas Holidays gave consultants the opportunity to win a place on the famil by promoting Qantas Airways and Qantas Holidays products in 2013.

“Events like this provide our consultants with a depth of experience, knowledge and confidence that is second to none. I’d like to thank our partners, Qantas Airways, Hong Kong Tourism Board and our six hotel partners, for helping us to make our Race Around Hong Kong a reality,” says Dalton.
