Arrivals Our excited ThermoFest’15 attendees were greeted by a giant mobile Thermomix billboard and two travelling bike boards as they pulled up into the Sheraton Mirage’s Porte Cochere. Our Head Office team were waiting to greet them with open arms and a beach inspired gift bag! Our local Queensland teams arrived in style in five colourful hummer limousines. 2 ThermoFest‘15

Opening Night Our guests, dressed in a touch of gold, gathered around the pool for a cocktail event under the stars. Our Consultants made the most of their selfie sticks by taking photos with two gold painted live statues. A gold dressed woman wowed the crowd performing acrobatics inside a plastic bubble which glided across the Sheraton’s pool. Grace and Bianca welcomed Consultants to Thermofest’15 and kicked off the event with a bang – a stunning display of fireworks over the beach. ThermoFest‘15 3

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Matthew played a video from their patient Louis and his Mum which thanked Thermomix for their help. Our jam-packed day ended with Jules Hogan and the Area Managers honouring our Consultants and Leaders who received the top award for each area.

MovieWorld Dressed as our favourite movie stars and superheros we boarded the buses to Movie World for a private party down Main Street. We were greeted by our host of the evening, Austin Powers who thought that we all looked groovy baby! After dining from international cuisine food trucks, we were treated to the Hollywood Legends show where some lucky guests got up close and personal with Elvis, Madonna and Marilyn Monroe. A concert isn’t complete without an after party so we headed to Scooby Doo’s Haunted House to dance the night away. ThermoFest‘15 5

Boat Cruise Making the most of Queensland’s beautiful sunshine, we sailed across the Broadwater by two luxurious Catamarans to McLarens Landing. Proving that Thermomix Consultants are always up for an adventure, their spirit wasn’t dampened when one of the boats decided to take a ‘rest’ minutes from shore. Our rescue vessel quickly arrived and our stranded sailors were greeted by a guard of honour before they feasted on a buffet lunch overlooking the island. Those that weren’t content just to bask in the sunshine went for a swim in the clear water or took a tour around the island on a segway. Our partners spent a day exploring the lush surrounds of Tamborine Mountain while getting acquainted with local fauna and flora by an experienced tour guide. Their tour was finished off perfectly with lunch and tastings at a local brewery. 6 ThermoFest‘15

Gala Dinner Our stars came out to shine ThermoFest’15 was capped off with a glamourous Gala Dinner in the Sheraton Mirage ballroom as we celebrated our superstars. Congratulations to everyone who was recognised for their achievements at the Gala Dinner. After the formalities were over, we were entertained by the amazing Jessica Mauboy who made the most of our Thermomix selfie sticks, posing for the camera while singing up a storm. Later that night our guests tore up the dance floor into the early hours of the morning. Thank you to everyone for being a part of ThermoFest’15, we can’t wait to see you all next year… wherever it may be! ThermoFest‘15 7
