Hong Kong a hit with Sydney and Melbourne Trade
150 travel trade professionals were given the Hong Kong star treatment late last month when representatives from the destination rolled into the two cities to provide product updates.
The Hong Kong Tourism Board, Cathay Pacific Airways and The Murray Hotel teamed up for the Sydney event which was held on 14 November at The Establishment. A Melbourne event then followed on 22 November, held at the Red Spice QV and in partnership with Cathay Pacific Airways.
Updates at both events included Cathay Pacific Airways’ new A350 aircraft deployment into Sydney as well as developments at one of Hong Kong’s newest five star hotels, The Murray.
Congratulations to the prize winners – Chris Bellmon from Travel Associates Rose Bay won two Cathay Pacific Airways economy return tickets to Hong Kong and three nights’ accommodation at The Murray at the Sydney event, and Felicity Moss from Jigsaw Travel won two economy return airfares to Hong Kong at the Melbourne event.
HKTB’s trade marketing and business tourism manager, Lisa Lee said face-to-face contact with the Australian travel trade remains a vital element to the HKTB trade strategy.
“Both events were fantastic opportunities to catch-up with our destination ambassadors and provide them with in-depth and informative product updates on all things Hong Kong, including our exciting new transportation links, Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macau Bridge and Hong Kong’s High Speed Railway.”
