The Global Work & Travel Co. Brings the Yacht to Their Customers
The world's leading youth travel agency has decided sending customers on a regular cruise, on a regular yacht, simply wasn't good enough anymore – so they're bringing an epic yacht party directly to their customers.The Global Work & Travel Co., the largest gap-year specialist travel agency, has teamed up with a popular Australian radio station, Radio Metro 105.7, and invited customers, partners and the general public to a one-of-a-kind event on the water, "The Global Yacht Party.""We have our very own DJ duo Matt Davies & Andy Dillon as Global Radio headlining the night, we invited other favourite local DJs, we've booked the yacht, and we're inviting the world to come and sail with us. We made our reputation off doing things differently, so when someone suggested a yacht party, we thought "Why not?" says Jürgen Himmelmann, CEO & Co-Founder of The Global Work & Travel Co.
