03 November 2017: A small but colourful group of Travellers Choice members recently embraced the fun, fashion and excitement of Victoria's Spring Racing Carnival by attending the glamorous 'Sofitel Girls Day Out' at Flemington Racecourse.
The Victorian and Tasmanian agents soaked up the sights and sounds of Melbourne’s most famous racetrack, with the highlight of the day being the $750,000 Makybe Diva Stakes, won in style by the Humidor.
Travellers Choice Business Development Manager VIC/TAS, Graham Smith says the group was lucky enough to enjoy the hospitality of the exclusive Emirates Mounting Yard Suite, where they were joined by Emirates' Linda Costantini and Travellers Choice General Manager Sales, Nicola Strudwick.
“We were also fortunate to receive some tips by Ellerton Zahra Racing’s Simon Zahra, who entertained the group with stories about his life as a trainer,” says Smith.
“His stable had a big win on the day, which brought a smile to a couple of the larger punters who had been sensible enough to follow his advice!”
Travellers Choice members from across Australia will gather in Perth later this month for the network’s 2017 Annual Shareholders' Conference. As well as hearing from worldclass presenters, taking part in valuable workshops and receiving coveted awards, Travellers Choice agents will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Australia’s leading network for independent travel agents with a black tie event at the Crown Towers Complex.
