Award winners from Magellan Travel Group recently returned from five luxury nights in Dubai and Oman having flown business class courtesy of Emirates.

Hosted by the Groups CEO, Andrew Macfarlane, the ‘CEO Journey’ is a reward and recognition experience which this year saw the group staying at St. Regis Hotel in Dubai, enjoying dinner at At.Mosphere on the 122nd floor of the iconic Burj Khalifa, seeing Dubai’s many attractions whilst onboard a Seawing’s scenic flight, visiting Al Maha deep within Dubai’s desert landscape, and spending 3 nights at the magical Six Senses – Zighy Bay in Oman.


The final night stay was at Jumeriah Zabeel Saray, on Dubai’s iconic Palm Island. The group relaxed, marveled, experienced and enjoyed the generous hospitality of Dubai Tourism, its partnering hotels and Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.

Each of the award winners on the CEO Journey was announced at the 2016 Magellan Travel Group conference in Auckland; Gerd Wilmer from Landmark Travel NSW (True Spirit Award), Jodie Shelton from Travel Centre Bendigo VIC (Corporate Travel Consultant of the Year), Richard French from Platinum Travel Corporation VIC (Corporate Travel Consultant of the Year), Misha Treasure from Cathie Rice Travel WA (Leisure Travel Consultant of the Year) and Megan Hutton, Spencer Travel Eastside NSW (Rising Star Award).


Macfarlane commented, saying “it is an honor to host the stars of our member’s businesses as nominated by their peers and judged by the Magellan board. Our award winners make an outstanding contribution to the success of their agencies, our Group and the industry at large.”

Macfarlane has confirmed that the winners of the 2017 Magellan Travel Group awards will be announced at the Group’s annual conference at Crown Towers Perth in September.


“This sort of recognition from peers within our network is something that Magellan loves to foster and reward. The experiences we had whilst in Dubai and Oman over the last week are ones which I hope will stay with each of our award winners for the rest of their lives.”
