More than 200 agents join OTT’s festive party

18/12/2020 By Julia Feuell, Managing Director, OTT O Comments

At OTT, we’ve really missed seeing our agents and partners at our traditional Christmas party.

While there’s no doubt that 2020 will go down in history as a year we’d rather forget, we decided to ring out the old and toast the new with a virtual gathering. Thanks to our partners including Cathay Pacific, Malaysia Airlines and Elite Island Resorts, we were able to bring some festive cheer to this gloomiest of years, brightening up a dark December afternoon with some fabulous prizes.

While we have really missed seeing our partners and agents in person, we were absolutely delighted to end the year on our highest engagement figure of the year. A total of 217 members of our agent community logged in to take part in our big festive quiz with the help of Travel.Radio, a global, digital radio station exclusively for those who work or are associated with the world of travel.

Presenter Leo Jones from Travel Radio warmed up the gathering with the pre-party and the chance to win an Alexa smart speaker. And although party goers had to deck their own halls, pour their own drinks and dish out their own nuts and nibbles, there was plenty of fun to be had with our quiz.

Our party goers did their homework, expanding their knowledge of sponsors’ product offerings by taking their courses … then it was a case of submitting the right answer on the Zoom chat with the lucky winners drawn to a drum roll.

Well done to all our winners!

Our Star Prizes included:

  • An £175 gift card to Skandium and two latest books from Meik Wiking at a value of £25, courtesy of Denmark won by Wendy McNair
  • A Nespresso Machine, courtesy of Malaysia Airlines won byKevin De Lemo
