The readiness of you and your team to “make it happen’ is a very refreshing change from what we sometimes encounter. The Thursday evening cocktail event was extremely well received by the motoring and lifestyle journalists we invited along and they all had nothing but positive comments to make about the event and its “feel’.
Our senior management (including our Board) also enjoyed the event and commented that it was the perfect venue and event to unveil the S-Class. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday as you know our vehicle display was staffed by my team and our S-Class product team. Every single member of these teams spoke very highly of the event, the attendees , the displays, the quality of the event management.

We fielded many customer enquiries about the new S-Class and received genuine compliments on our choice of Motorclassica as the venue to unveil the new S-Class in Australia.

The Travel Industry Exhibition
A new B2B trade show exclusively for the Australian travel industry.

A huge range of exhibitors are taking part and the event will provide a key forum for education and networking. The show is supported by Travel Daily and will coincide with the Australian Federation of Travel Agents Industry Awards.
'The Travel Industry Exhibition is a great, neutral exhibition where suppliers can meet and talk to agents from all brands openly. Agents need to know all the options in the market to remain truly professional in their advice to customers. We had terrific response to our stand last year with agents genuinely interested in the Expedia TAAP and how we can help their business. Many of those agents are now regular TAAP users or have increased their throughput because they know that when they use Expedia TAAP, it keeps their customers coming back.' Stuart Udy, Expedia TAAP
'It is important for Executive Air to be at The Travel Industry Exhibition as it provides us with the perfect opportunity to not only showcase our latest boutique air tours, but also to meet those key industry people that are just as excited as we are about our products.
