Eighties pop icon Sinitta is to attend this year’s Jet2holidays conference as its VIP performer.

The operator’s VIP trade conference will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tenerife from November 27 to December 1.

Sinitta’s attendance will be part of Jet2holidays’ 80s theme on the Canary island as it hosts 240 of its independent travel agent partners over two back-to-back two-day events.

Sinitta sang 80s hits So Macho and GTO and more recently has helped coach contestants on the X Factor.

Jet2holidays posted a video on Youtube confirming Sinitta as the star draw, in which she said: “Hey guys this is Sinitta. I’m looking forward to seeing you at the Jet2holidays VIP conference in Tenerife at the Hard Rock Hotel. I’ll see you there.”

At the conference, agents will hear about Jet2holidays’ future vision from chief executive Steve Heapy and see interactive sessions on how to promote and sell package holidays to further boost their own growth and expansion and focus on how independent agents can sell the operator’s Jet2Villas product, which was announced at the 2016 conference.

There will also be presentations, supplier showcases, a gala dinner and a breakfast pool party.

Jet2holidays is also offering agents the chance to perform on stage at a talent competition during the conference. With just over a month to go, agents are invited to submit videos showcasing their talents – whether that be singing, dancing or something else – to conference@Jet2holidays.com with six winners to perform on stage at the conference.

Alan Cross, head of trade at Jet2holidays, said: “This year we are going bigger and better than ever, with more interactive sessions for agents to take part in, as well as two prestigious awards ceremonies which celebrate the success of our partnership approach with independent travel agents.

“To top it all off we are delighted to have Sinitta with us for both conferences and I guarantee this year’s event will be our best yet.”
