After months of some serious hustle, sales have now turned into seats for 20 lucky agents who have been informed they will be taking off to Fuji Rock in Japan with youth travel leader, Contiki on the industry’s most anticipated incentive, ROCK Around the World.
Launching the incentive in September, Contiki provided agents with amazing deals to help them secure as many bookings as possible and hopefully land one of the top 20 seller spots. This year’s destination of Japan was revealed in January, the earliest ever, in the 14-year history of the ROCK incentive.
The 20 top selling agents (including 1 one wildcard winner) from all around Australia will depart in July. There they will join 25 other top sellers from around the world to experience Fuji Rock, as well as some of Contiki’s popular Japan Unrivalled itinerary, including Tokyo, Hakone, visiting the famous Robot Restaurant and more.
Katrina Barry, Managing Director for Contiki Holidays said “After 14 years running ROCK Around the World, at Contiki we’re always challenging ourselves to make the next bigger and better. I certainly think we’ve achieved that with Fuji Rock.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with JNTO on this year’s trip to ensure agents experience the very best Japan has to offer. This is sure to be one of the most memorable ROCK Around the World trips ever.”
Mariko Tatsumi, Executive Director, Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) Sydney, said “Congratulations to the travel agents that have won a place on ROCK Around the World 2016! We can’t wait to show you all Japan has to offer for young adventurers, including excellent nightlife, delicious cuisine, authentic cultural experiences and amazing festivals like Fuji Rock.”
