MTA turns the tables on suppliers with national round of thank you functions
Leading in to what now represents one of the most significant periods in its 17-year-long history, MTA – Mobile Travel Agents’ senior management last week made a whistle-stop tour of Australia to turn the tables for a change and personally thank the company’s many industry partners and suppliers for their ongoing support.
Addressing their guests at evening functions held in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, the MTA team led by co-managing directors Roy and Karen Merricks and CEO, Don Beattie also used the opportunity to update MTA Members joining them at the events on new internal product and innovations including soon to be rolled out IT.
By way of personally saying thank you to their supporters, the Merricks, joined by the MTA Marketing team and MTA Business Development Managers responsible for each state, also gave away lavish hampers to several of their guest suppliers as part of a lucky door prize conducted at each venue.
