I can’t quite fathom that we’re coming to the end of the year 2016 already! Perhaps for some of us it’s just as well – this has been one of the toughest years we’ve seen business wise and I’m sure the same will go for many of you. Ever the optimist, I do believe that 2017 will be a bigger and better year for us all!
One of the highlights of the year for us at Motive Travel was winning the bid to be the Exclusive Travel Partner for the Perth 2016 World Masters Athletics Championships. I was amazed and impressed by the incredible stamina of some of the older athletes and the camaraderie shown by all the athletes involved. I was also truly honoured to have been given the opportunity to present medals to some of the winning athletes; a once in a lifetime opportunity that will always be remembered. What a wonderful event for our great city to have hosted! Have a look at the event Facebook page for some great photos!
Being the Exclusive Travel Partner for the World Masters Athletics Championships suited us to a tee as we have always maintained a strong sports and events travel focus. Next year makes no exception to this focus as we add our inaugural English Premier League Tour to our sports tours fold! We hope some of you may be able to join us to see some incredible football action.
Speaking now of football of the AFL kind, I did manage to attend my 41st consecutive AFL Grand Final this year! I say this not to gloat but rather to express my gratitude to have been able to again attend the yearly climax of a sport which has shaped most of my life. Thanks to all of those clients who through the years have come across to attend the event with us.
I cast a thought now to those of you for whom the festive season may be a difficult time. May the New Year shine some light through your darkness and bring you happier, healthier times.
A sincere wish for a safe and happy festive season for you and all your loved ones! Thank you so much for your support and for being a part of the Motive family.
My best regards,
and all the team at Motive Travel
