Thank you to everyone who joined the first-ever Travefy Academy Trivia Happy Hour on Thursday, May 29th! We hope that you had as much as fun as we did.
It’s no secret the past couple of months have been impactful in the travel industry so we wanted to organize a virtual get-together to take a break from the daily grind and just have fun! All of that taken together, we decided to host travel trivia on Zoom! Around 50 of our amazing Travefy users attended and 3 winners were crowned Trivia champions!
Congrats again to our winners:
1st Place: Courtney Jensen from Fisher & Stout
