Drum roll… Contiki, has today revealed the exciting destination that 20 lucky agents will be whisked away to on its highly anticipated ROCK Around the World incentive.

In 2016, the top sellers will be rocking their way to Japan to experience the country’s incredible Fuji Rock Festival and a host of other amazing Contiki highlights.

Over 1,000 agents took part in a quiz on Contiki’s agent Facebook group in order to unlock the earlier than ever reveal and thus, providing extra time to pull in sales for a potential spot on the trip.

“With a 14 year legacy, ROCK Around the World has become one of the industry’s most popular annual incentives. The gigs and festivals Contiki has taken agents to around the world include V, Coachella, Lollapalooza and many more. With Japan being one of our newest Contiki trip destinations, we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to include Fuji Rock to this legendary list”

Katrina Barry, Managing Director, Contiki Holidays

“To make this trip even more memorable, we have partnered with JNTO to ensure agents experience the very best of Japan. As such we were particularly excited about this year’s event and so have made this announcement earlier than ever before.  This also provides agents more time to work on securing sales and potentially snagging one of the coveted 19 spots, or even the one wild card place.”

Mariko Tatsumi, Executive Director, JNTO Sydney said “We are so excited that Japan has been selected as the destination for ROCK Around the World 2016! Those lucky enough to win a place on the trip will discover that Japan has so much to offer young adventurers including excellent nightlife, great cuisine, authentic experiences and amazing festivals like Fuji Rock.

“With events like the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020, Japan’s popularity as a travel destination is on the rise. We hope more young Australians can tick Japan off their bucket list this year”

Contiki’s ROCK Around the World will take 20 agents to Fuji Rock in July, 2016.
