Travel expo attracts 30 service providers
A travel expo featuring exhibits from over 30 service providers will be held on the Peninsula from 10am to 3pm on February 25.
Ettalong Bowling Club will be the venue for the event run by Umina mobile Travel Managers agent Ms Robyn Simmonds and her associate Ms Renny Karsten.
Ms Simmonds, who has been in the travel industry for 23 years, said she had wanted to run a local travel expo for years and was pleased to be able to bring tour and cruise operators, travel insurance representatives, transfer companies and even a local medical centre to do vaccinations, to the expo.
Ms Symmonds said the advantages of being a mobile travel agent included that she could structure her business to best service her clients when they needed her, whether that was 8pm or even 2am.
She said that flexibility enabled her to service the needs of the whole range of Peninsula travellers from retirees, empty nesters, cruisers and families.
Highlights of the expo will include Travel Trivia with a range of prizes to be won, along with lucky door prizes and a major prize.
Local troubadour Ben Woodham will entertain the crowd with some travel songs.
