Bentours and Hurtigruten showcase remote destinations to agents
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.
