TravelManagers has been running a series of ‘Battle of the Brain’-style trivia nights in Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, attended by over 100 Personal Travel Managers (PTMs) National Partnership staff, and a host of industry partner suppliers including Allianz Global Assistance who attended every event.
Karen Dowling, Business Partnership Manager for Brisbane says the focus of the events was to foster better relationships between PTMs and local industry suppliers.
“Our intention and goal for these evenings was to create networking opportunities between our PTMs and partner suppliers in a relaxed and informal environment. The NPO support and physical presence regionally is also invaluable, and the trivia night provided a fun, and at times highly competitive forum for social interaction.”
Each supplier was asked to provide five product related questions for the trivia quiz. The Brisbane trivia night also ended up being much more than simply a test of general knowledge, with suppliers showcasing their musical hidden talents in a five minute rap!
“Mark Morrow from Excite Holidays even dressed up as a rap music artist and his song showcased all of Excite Holidays USPs including their 24-hour, 7 day a week agency support call centre, the in-house agent rewards program and flexible commission rates,” laughs Dowling.
The feedback from suppliers was extremely positive as consistently summed up by Camille Moore, APT Queensland.
“What a fabulous trivia night, everyone had a great time. We look forward to a strong relationship between us and the personal travel managers.”
