January 2016 Update
Welcome to the inagural edition of "Aussie Fusion" Supplier Newsletter. We are hoping to keep you - our valued suppliers abreast of the current trends in our marketplace. Sales into Australia are growing organically with demand exceeding supply over the Christmas months. The traditional Flight Centre "World Travel Expo's" have kicked off with Townsville, Hobart, Sydney and Mackay already completed. Upcoming is Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth so looking forward to some excellent domestic sales being generated from these events.
The Aussie Fusion Development team are all working on our preparation for our major product conference for the year. The Flight Centre Travel Group Product Experience Conference (also known as PEC) kicks off on Super Bowl Sunday in New Orleans and will be hosted by Brand USA. Watch out for the Kangaroos to hit Mardi Gras! This conference will form the basis for our year addressing our key strategies to make the 1617 travel year a success.
Look forward to seeing you around the traps soon.
