President's Column SPAA on Facebook
It was a fantastic turnout at the Scottish Travel Agents Roadshow (STAR) at the Douglas Hotel in Aberdeen last week! It was great to see so many Associates making the effort to travel north to engage in such a great networking opportunity with the local Members. We sometimes forget what a hectic life these guys have and the vast distances that they have to cover to get to the various events and functions that they have to attend in any given week.....
Anyway, they weren't disappointed - and neither were the Agents, with some fantastic prizes on offer, such as tickets to anywhere on the Qatar Airways network, Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Iceland plus a whole host of other prizes too numerous to mention, but equally exciting to win on the night.
In fact, I reckon that you have about a 1 in 3 chance of winning something when you attend one of the STAR events, so watch out for the Glasgow STAR on 22nd November and get it in your diary now.
BTW Danny Giles of Hurtigruten wins the 'best outfit' on the night prize for Associates and there is a nice bottle of ICE Cava for the first person who can name the character and describe Danny's outfit on an email to [email protected]m
Finally - remember, if you haven't yet cast your votesfor the SPAA Annual Travel Awards - the good news is that we now have an updated electronic voting system!
Voting closes 10th October 2016.

Hope you are well and keeping busy. As I write this I am on the count down to my summer holiday and hoping for some sunshine.
It’s been a tough couple of months in the travel world with terrorist attacks in popular French towns, Turkey suffering from political unrest, Brexit and the continued downturn in the Oil and Gas market – but us travel agents are made of tough stuff, we just smile and get on with it!
Our associates are keeping us busy as ever and as always have lots of news to share with you.
