25 fun-loving agents celebrated the latest edition of Excite Edit ‘A Local’s Guide to Santa Monica’ with a party at the pier earlier this month.

Party like you’re in CAL-I-FORN-I-A!

Set against a backdrop of surfboards, skateboards and a seaside grill, Pier One Sydney Harbour, Walsh Bay transported SaMo’s signature Pacific Coast style to the Harbour City’s own pier – with an exclusive agent event hosted by Excite Holidays and Santa Monica Travel & Tourism (SMTT).

Amongst a sunny setting that wouldn’t have looked out of place in LA’s Beach City, 25 of Excite Holidays’ top-selling agents embraced the event’s So-Cal beach-fit theme with a 45-minute Zumba session.

After working up a sweat – and an appetite – guests were treated to a feast of clean eats that embraced Santa Monica’s fresh food and fitness focus – including antipasto, pulled beef tacos and a seafood station with fresh prawns and oysters. Thirsts were quenched with fresh JuicedLife cold press juices and blend-your-own-smoothies stops.

Joined by Excite Holidays team members Meagan Loane (Partnerships Manager), Will Gabb (Regional BDM (NSW/ACT) and Nadia Jacobs (Marketing Specialist) VIP speeches from Santa Monica Travel & Tourism reps included: Misti Kerns – President & CEO SMTT; Jennifer Bruce – Trade Partnerships Manager AU/NZ SMTT and Natasha Esson – Partnership Executive SMTT.

The evening ended as the sun, sand and surf vibes gave way to sunset cocktails – and DJ Siila spinning classic Cali tracks to get agents in touch with their inner ‘California Gurl’ (or Boy)!
