Zoë Sparks – Director & PCO
Zoë has over thirty year’s experience within the travel industry. After winning the prestigious “Traveland National Consultant of the Year 1995/96” award, she moved from Qld’s Sunshine Coast to Sydney to take on the position as Conference Manager for Traveland Pty Ltd.
In 1998, Spectacular Events Pty Ltd was launched, specialising in all aspects of Conference & Event Management and also corporate travel. She remained contracted to Traveland until 2001 but also decided to set up a travel agency after her move back to the Sunshine Coast in June 2000.
Spectacular Events Pty Ltd joined the Jetset Travelworld Group in 2001, and for a number of years Zoë had two travel centres – Travelworld Caloundra and Travelworld Mooloolaba. She merged the two together in 2004, and this was when the business really took off and became recognised as being the Sunshine Coast’s leading travel centre with a repeat and referred clientele to be envied. Zoë was named the 2004 Sunshine Coast “Business Woman of the Year” and she was then recognised as a 2005 & 2006 QLD finalist in the Telstra “Business Woman of the Year” awards, and more recently as a finalist in the Australian Leadership Excellence Awards
Zoë’s passion has always been working on conferences, events, corporate and group travel, and also assisting her clients and friends to realise their personal travel dreams. She has travelled extensively and loves to share her knowledge and experiences, whilst developing relationships that are professional but personable.
This led her to make the decision in June 2011 to focus exclusively on these areas and to move out of a retail 9am – 5pm travel centre and into a corporate environment… now known as Spectacular World Travel & Events.
