The 2019 Helloworld Travel Owner Managers Conference and Helloworld Business Travel Summit in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam has wrapped up after three jam-packed days of conferencing, events and sampling the best Vietnam has to offer.

The event brought agents from Australia and New Zealand together alongside Supplier Partners and staff to share in the latest developments for the Helloworld Travel Group.

Setting the scene for the three-day event, delegates gathered at the InterContinental Hotel for the Welcome Function.

Two days of conferencing followed, bringing everyone together at the Gem Centre, a recently built convention centre in Ho Chi Minh to hear from CEO and Managing Director of Helloworld Travel Andrew Burnes.

His presentation dove into the conference theme of ‘Our Evolution Continues’ and the evolving story of Helloworld Travel.

Delegates completed day two in style with the Helloworld Business Travel Networking Dinner at Xu Restaurant whilst Branded and Associate agents made their way to the highly anticipated OMC Awards Dinner at the InterContinental Hotel.


Aussie diva Kate Ceberano kept everyone entertained as she zipped from the Business Summit event to the Retail Awards and had everyone dancing the night away.

On Saturday evening delegates came together one final time at the Gem Centre for the Farewell Party Night where the room was decorated like the nighttime streets of Vietnam.

The one-and-only Jimmy Barnes then appeared on stage to rock the night away in Vietnam!


A repeat performer at OMCs and a definite Helloworld Travel favorite, the Aussie music icon rocked the party into the wee hours, with an extra special highlight when Kate Ceberano joined him on stage for an exclusive duet performance.

The formal conference proceedings closed with the announcement that the Helloworld Travel OMC Australia/New Zealand and the Helloworld Business Travel Summit will be held 14 -16 May 2020 in Perth WA!
