HEADLINE:Brisbane hosts exclusive over 50s travel expo

COPY:While there are many Travel Expos held in Brisbane, there is only one targeted exclusively at the over 50s. To be held on Saturday, 24 March at the Pullman Hotel, the Travel Team Expo for Over 50s offers travel enthusiasts over 50 the opportunity to research and compare hundreds of holidays, from luxury world cruises to authentic Aussie adventures – all in one place, on one day.

Open from 9.00am to 1.00pm, there will be over 30 major exhibitors at the Expo, including Scenic, Evergreen, Princess Cruises, APT and Holland America, to name just a few.

Visitors to the Expo can also take advantage of exclusive ‘on-the-day’ only deals and can go into the draw to win a $1,000 travel voucher. Plus, there are many more prizes to be won on the day.

SUBHEAD:Over 50s make travel a priority

COPY:With the kids grown up and no longer having to work 24/7 to pay the bills, many over 50s now have the freedom to indulge their passion for travel more than ever.

“Over 50s just love to travel, for so many reasons – educational, cultural, social, or just because we deserve it!” explained Perry Morcombe, Founder and CEO of Travel Team, the over 50s travel specialists.

Many over 50s are seeking more adventure and cultural experiences, which are leading them to exotic destinations such as China, South America, the Arctic/Antarctica, Vietnam and the Himalayas. They are also taking the time out for much longer holidays – several months, rather than just weeks. Visitors can explore all of these exotic destinations and many more at the Travel Team Expo for Over 50s in Brisbane.

SUBHEAD:Explore the world in one day

COPY:“This is the perfect place for over 50s to get inspiration and book their next cruise or international or domestic trip. Unlike other travel expos, they don’t have to sort through thousands of holidays to find the ones that are suitable for over 50s. We’ve done all the hard work for them, by ensuring that every travel experience on offer has been hand-picked for this market,” said Perry Morcombe.

“We’ve held expos before, and people really enjoy having a few fun-filled hours of travel inspiration, where they can talk one-on-one with our experienced team and directly to the travel specialists from all the exhibitors – not to mention the great deals and prizes!”

“The Expo also provides us with the opportunity to catch up with our customers and hear about their travel adventures and plans for the future. Many of our clients are like family to us, and we enjoy nothing more than having a cuppa and a chat with them.”

SUBHEAD:Celebrating 20 years in travel

COPY:Travel Team has been in the business of selling travel and only travel for 20 years. We specialise in the over 50’s because our founder, Perry Morcombe at 66 has a passion to help keep people healthier, younger and fitter through the experience of travel.
