PATA and Travel Uni join forces to quiz agents
by Steve Hartridge
Two online quiz nights will launch PATA UK & Ireland’s new virtual training experiences for travel agents.
The initiative, in association with online training provide Travel Uni, are designed to be ‘fun and informal’.
The interactive quizzes will consist of 40 questions over eight rounds and will be themed on the Asia Pacific region, with questions from Tourism Australia, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Outrigger Resorts, Tourism Western Australia, South Australia Tourism Commission, Banyan Tree and others.
Agents can go head-to-head with their colleagues or team up whilst testing their knowledge.
The quiz prizes up for grabs include designer coffee cups, thermal water bottles, bluetooth speakers and chocolate hampers.
Commenting on the new training initiative, Ian Dockreay, Committee Member and Training Representative for PATA UK & Ireland said: “Our goal is to keep the Asia Pacific region front of mind with travel agents by using this enforced period of downtime to engage with and inspire them. These quizzes are a great way for agents to continue learning from our members.It's just one of many ideas PATA have in the pipeline with the aim of boosting agents knowledge and morale before bookings start to pick up again.”
The online quizzes will take place on Thursday May 28 and Thursday June 4. Hosted via Zoom they will run from 16.00 to 17.30.
