For release, Travel Daily, 30th April 2014: BREAKFAST TV personality Steve Jacobs is well known to all Australian audiences both as an actor and in his current guise as the peripatetic weather presenter on Channel 9 show Today. Jacobs was present at last night’s Tourism Vanuatu roadshow in his new Ambassadorial role for the country’s holiday offerings. Describing Vanuatu as his “soul food”, Jacobs said he was a regular visitor to the islands both on a professional and personal basis. He spoke passionately about the appeal of the destination and encouraged attendees to engage themselves with the local culture for a truly immersive experience.
Last night’s roadshow was the first of three, with Melbourne and Brisbane to follow and 350 agents expected to attend in total. Agents met with hotel and day tour operators, were serenaded by local singing troupe, The Vanuatu Four, and had the chance to win a swag of great prizes including flights and hotel stays.
