Ben­tours and Hur­tigruten show­case re­mote des­ti­na­tions to agents

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

BEN­TOURS, in part­ner­ship with Hur­tigruten, re­cently un­der­took an ex­cit­ing new ven­ture which saw them tackle a na­tional road­show across Aus­tralia. Held over two weeks in Aug and Sep, the road­show con­sisted of 15 events in five cities: Tas­ma­nia, Mel­bourne, Syd­ney, Bris­bane and Ade­laide. The in­for­ma­tion­packed events left at­ten­dees awe-in­spired with tales from the world’s north­ern­most town, Sval­bard, a doc­u­men­tary show­cas­ing stun­ning Nor­way and a pow­er­ful pre­sen­ta­tion on Antarc­tica and the Arc­tic. With a de­sire to ed­u­cate agents on all of the thrills of the re­mote des­ti­na­tions that Hur­tigruten and Ben­tours of­fer, the events were de­signed to be full of first-hand knowl­edge that they could take back to im­press their clients. To do this, the events fea­tured two guest speak­ers who pro­vided in­valu­able in­sight. Do­minic Barrington, a po­lar ex­pe­di­tion pho­tog­ra­pher for Hur­tigruten, re­galed agents with sto­ries from the Arc­tic and Antarc­tica, while Anika Paust had guests con­vinced Sval­bard was the ul­ti­mate travel des­ti­na­tion full of un­par­al­leled ad­ven­ture and mys­tery.
