Rock Around the World with Contiki

Rock Around the World with Contiki

Contiki Holidays NZ rewards agents with tickets

to the world’s biggest concerts

Auckland, 4th October 2010: For the first time in New Zealand, Contiki Holidays is offering the top 10 travel agents the chance to see a world class concert in an amazing foreign destination. The final standings will be based on which agents sell the most applicable tours (see Terms and Conditions). This fabulous prize will include tickets, return airfares and access to an exclusive Contiki tour.

For example, the winners of last year’s Australian competition are off to see The Black Eyed Peas in the Canadian Rockies. The red carpet is being rolled out for the lucky agents as they take a tour of some of Canada’s coolest sites, including Vancouver and Whistler before taking in the concert itself.

Tony Laskey, General Manager of Contiki NZ says:

"The Rock Around the World incentive is our unique way of saying thank you to our top agents by offering them a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Every Contiki booking made up until 30 June, 2011 takes agents closer to scoring one of the 10 sought after spots on next year's trip. Contiki keeps the location and artist under wraps right up until D-Day at the end of the incentive, making the announcement even more exciting.”

Past events have included U2 and Snow Patrol in Toronto, the Rolling Stones in Istanbul, Alanis Morissette in Toronto, Bon Jovi in Dublin, INXS, Pink and Lenny Kravitz in Las Vegas, Robbie Williams in London, Madonna in Dublin, U2 in Madrid, the Red Hot Chili Peppers in San Diego, Gwen Stefani in Berlin and The Police in Vienna.
