As 2018 rapidly draws to a close, TravelManagers have wrapped up their final state meetings for the year, bringing together personal travel managers (PTMs) from around the entire country.
Tasmania-based PTMs had one-on-one catch-ups with their Business Partnership Manager during November, followed by a Christmas get-together.
Meanwhile, all five state meetings included updates from National Partnership Office representatives, covering a range of subjects including famils, product training and marketing.
They were also able to attend a ‘Fireside Chat’ with TravelManagers’ Executive team.
PTM Georgina Grandi, who is representative for Terranora, NSW, describes this latest round of state meetings as “the best ever.”
“I got so much out of it, met some totally awesome new and experienced PTMs I’ve never met before and I am totally amped for 2019.”

The Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland meetings were supplemented by optional, one-day cruise master-classes that were timed to coincide with the state meetings to maximise convenience for attendees.
All five meetings were followed by Christmas functions which allowed attendees time to celebrate the conclusion of a successful year and to mingle with their colleagues on a more informal basis.
Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, said the meetings were attended by more than twenty partner suppliers, along with a record number of PTMs.
“Across the five meetings, we had nearly three hundred PTMs in attendance, which represents more than half the entire network, and many of whom travelled significant distances to participate,” he said.
Sue Wright, who is TravelManagers’ representative for Shoal Point in northern Queensland, travelled more than 1300 kilometres to Brisbane for her state meeting.
“I simply love the vibe of this amazing community and all that TravelManagers represents,” she said.
