6th of December, 2013

The AOT Group is pleased to announce that Queensland has been confirmed as the destination for the Sunlover Holiday’s STARS event in 2014.

“We are delighted to be returning to Queensland for STARS in 2014”, said AOT Group Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Burnes.

STARS is Sunlover Holiday’s innovative loyalty program that rewards the highest-achieving travel agents from within Sunlover Holiday’s vast network of agents from Australia and New Zealand. The program culminates in the annual STARS event, where the top 100 agents are treated to four days of exclusive activities and entertainment in a different Australian destination each year.

“In 2014 our top performing agents from Australia and New Zealand will be wined and dined and shown the many wonderful highlights and attractions that Queensland has to offer. The event is designed to celebrate the achievements of our top performers and provides us with the perfect opportunity to reward them for their continued support of Sunlover Holidays”, said Mr Burnes.

Tourism and Events Queensland Acting CEO Steve McRoberts welcomed the news and said the state looked forward to hosting Sunlover Holiday’s STARS event in 2014.

“This visit will give Australia and New Zealand’s top travel agents a taste of Queensland’s tourism experiences, inspiring them to in turn sell our state to customers,” Mr McRoberts said.

STARS was last held in Queensland in 2011, where Tropical North Queensland played host. Other Queensland destinations to have hosted STARS in the past include the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and The Whitsundays.

Sunlover Holidays is a division of the AOT Group and is Australia’s largest distributor of domestic leisure travel products and services.
