Here's to 2017

It’s been a fantastic year here at Klick HQ, and we’re already in planning mode for some very exciting campaigns in 2017.

From the whole team at Klick, thanks for a great year and here's to a safe and restful holiday season.

Klick Wins B&T Employer of the Year

Klick recently cracked out the champagne to celebrate being named Employer of the Year at the 2016 B&T Awards.

We put our win down to Klick’s Kulture; from Klick Kanteen and focussing on strengths (not weaknesses), to our annual pilgrimage to the sandy shores of Hawaiʻi, it’s our people that makes 397 Riley Street the best place to work.

A Kwick Update

1. Twitter announces users can now mute specific conversations, as well as filter out tweets with a particular word or phrase.

3. For the first time, Snap Inc. has revealed how many Australians are daily active users on the platform... and it's a cool 4 million.

#NoFilter needed in Alberta, Canada

Klick recently visited partner Travel Alberta where we experienced the Canadian province’s stunning beauty first-hand. We explored Edmonton, Calgary and Canmore, drove through the Canadian Rockies along the world famous Icefields Parkway and discovered the incredible scenery of Lake Louise and Banff National Park.

With Banff recently added to the National Geographic Traveler’s Best of the World list, Alberta’s magnificent natural beauty boasts many bucket list experiences such as seeing the Northern Lights, spotting bears and moose and digging for dinosaur fossils. 

The Business of Influence

On 22 November we hosted our annual 2016 Klick Konnect, which explored the future of Influencer Marketing. Klick Konnect is our way of saying thank you to our partners, presenting interesting ways to leverage this powerful marketing tool. 

Our speakers included: Nicole Foster from Tourism Australia, who spoke of their great partnership with Chris Hemsworth; Danielle Lewis, CEO of Scrunch who explained the neverending possibilities of influencer data and relationships; and our very own Kim McKay, who shared insights on the strategy of selecting the perfect influencer.

If you're interested in hearing more about Influencer Marketing, please get in contact and we'd be happy to share the presentations from the day.

Belvedere Ice-Pop at Zeta Bar

Need to cool down? Stop by the newly launched Belvedere Ice-Pop Bar at Zeta Bar, Hilton Sydney.

Nestled amongst Sydney’s city skyline, Zeta’s popular terrace has been transformed into a summer oasis featuring the city’s first frozen Belvedere Vodka cocktail popsicles. Featuring premium Belvedere Vodka, the refreshing popsicles are an inventive and modern twist on classic cocktails.

The icy treats come in three mouth-watering flavours; a citrusy Sgroppino, an orange and raspberry Americana and an Espresso Lollypop.

Wineglass to Whitehaven

At the end of October, Klick had the privilege of taking a small group of journalists on what was quite possibly our most luxurious famil to date. The soon to be launched 'Whitehaven Beach to Wineglass Bay' package is an exclusive partnership between two of Australia’s most luxurious properties, qualia and Saffire Freycinet.

The trip took place over five days and saw the group travel from the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef to the picturesque and uninterrupted East Coast of Tasmania. The once in a lifetime experience included two nights at each property with a one-night stopover in Hobart.
