The Magellan Travel Group held the first of their annual State Dinners on Wednesday night at the Westin in Melbourne, partnered by Emirates Airways.
Magellan members, management and board came together to eat, drink and be merry, and to review the Group’s past seven months, following the 2016 conference in Auckland.
Co-founder Kevin Dale reflected on the journey since Magellan formed in 2008, and Group Chairman, Andrew Jones outlined the vision for continued success and growth into the future.
In his address to the 55 members in attendance, Group CEO Andrew Macfarlane shared progress and results and highlighted the continued growth that sees Magellan now a 130-member strong Group of over $1 billion in annual TTV.
“The travel industry moves too fast for us to come together only once a year at our annual conference,” he said.
” … in keeping with our model and our core values, we strongly believe in regular open forum discussion and transparency. We place considerable importance on facilitating events such as these.”
