In conjunction with Discover Los Angeles, two exclusive agent events were held to celebrate our campaign, ‘A Million Reasons to Book LA’.

To kick off the festivities, 25 agents descended on The Laneway in Brisbane where they had the chance to get behind the bar and create three of their very own L.A.-inspired cocktails, including The Enlightenment, L.A. Sunset and Mulholland Drive. Here they also dined on a selection of delicious bites, including mozzarella fried gnocchi, mini pork burgers and chocolate brownies.

Next on the list was Sydney, where another 25 agents were treated to a world-class cocktail making session at the uber-luxe Blu Bar on 36 at the Shangri-La Hotel. The agents were treated to a welcome cocktail on arrival, before shaking things up with the resident mixologist to create two L.A.-inspired cocktails, including the Surfrider and Brown Derby. They also had the chance to indulge in an impressive menu that featured fresh oysters, beef burgers and charcuterie.

Along with the Excite Holidays Marketing Team, two representatives from the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board were in attendance at each event to speak about all things Los Angeles. Carolyn Nightingale, Travel Trade Manager Australia was on hand in Brisbane, whilst Craig Gibbons, Regional Director of Australia & New Zealand was in Sydney, and along with giving short presentations, they both mingled with guests and spoke about all that the City of Angels has to offer – no matter how many times you’ve visited!

Both events were a success and it’s safe to say, got everyone’s taste buds tingling!
