Travel Centres 17th Roaring Success
Jacinta Mc Glynn (Travelbiz Senior Reporter) attended the 17th Travel Centres 2022 conference in the splendid surrounds of Killashee House Hotel in Co. Kildare back in November. Dominic and Bernie Burke once again pulled out all the stops delivering an amazing event with speed dating workshops and professional presentations for the first half of the day.
Andy Harmer (CLIA) gave a rousing speech; ditto Adam Weatherly from ISME Skillnets and Keynote Speaker Russell Beck. The atmosphere was electric. I spoke to many agents all buzzing with positivity and simply delighted to be in the midst of travel colleagues again. The networking event was jammed with each exhibitor’s table facing queues of eager agents anxious to hone their skills on upcoming products and discover what’s trending and learn the latest news updates. This supplier speed dating could catch on! The broad smiles and energy in the room was enough.
Travel Centres gala night themed on the roaring 20’s was simply a roaring success. A fitting end to a superb conference, the gala night was splendiferous to say the least! Headline Sponsors, Silversea and Royal Caribbean should have been justly proud of the incredible exposure and the generosity of other sponsors: Air Canada, Bedsonline, Hertz, ISME, Stuba, Sunway, MSC, TUI, United and Melia was thoroughly appreciated. Dominic and Bernie worked incredibly hard to bring this all together, so take a well deserved bow. The glitter, glamour, sequins and sparkle surpassed anything Killashee House had ever witnessed. There were more Jay Gatsby figures, Al Capones, gangsters, Peaky Blinders, Victorian style bathers (DoSomethingDifferent!), Daisy Buchanan lookalikes and stunning flapper girls than you could shake a boa feather at!
