The workshops will take place in London (December 10), Birmingham (December 11), Glasgow (December 12) and Manchester (December 13) with more than 200 agents able to attend.

Agents will get an overview of Australia properties, tours, and the experiences featured in the new Travel 2 brochure. There will also be dedicated sessions on the Sydney Opera House; hotel chains such as Peppers Retreats, Orient Express and Hayman Island; destinations such as Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef; and tour provider Australian Pacific Touring.

The workshops’ headline sponsors are Tourism Australia and Qantas, with opportunities for agents attending to win a place on an exclusive fam trip to Australia courtesy of Qantas and Travel 2.

Dagmar Marrocco, Australia senior product manager, Travel 2, said: “As an Australia specialist, Travel 2 has carried out training sessions on the destination before, but never as such an intensive back-to-back programme. Offering face-to-face interaction with many essential elements to an Australia holiday means that agents will be able to sharpen their selling techniques and understand more about what is new and exciting in Australia from Travel 2.”

The events are also sponsored by relaxation specialists Mantra Resorts, a collection of premium resort hotels throughout Australia. The massages supplied by Exhale will teach the agents seated massage techniques. Travel 2 is also ensuring that all agents attending learn relaxation techniques that they can employ back at work, and help colleagues cope with stressful situations.
