Viking’s VOR event at Auckland’s Tamaki Yacht Club on Wednesday night was action packed with 120 agents enjoying education along with a quiz and some prizes.
Managing director ANZ of Viking, Michelle Black and national sales manager, Keira Smith were able to cross the ditch for the event along with MC Andrew Gill.
‘Thank goodness for bubbles,’ said Black, who told the agents that although cruising may have stopped in 2020, Viking had been busy. The company launched Viking TV so that clients could cruise virtually from home, and continued to actively market to both the consumer and trade. It’s taken a scientific approach to health and safety protocols, including installing full PCR labs on ocean ships and implementing daily saliva PCR tests onboard all of its ships.
The main focus of the training evening was on polar expedition cruising (with a wrap up of river and ocean product) with regional sales manager NZ, Steve Parker also encouraging agents ‘to use us for your benefit,’ including hosting client events.
