Young tourism leaders on annual Tourism Trade sales mission in Brisbane and Sydney
Posted on August 1st, 2018
This week our three Capricorn Young Tourism Leaders (Eloise Chaffers, Amanda Hinton and Zac Garven) are visiting Inbound Tour Operators and major tourism partners in Sydney and Brisbane.
After accompanying their RTO for the first couple of years, this is their second annual solo Trade Mission to meet with Virgin Australia, Sunlover Holidays, Flight Centre, Tourism and Events Queensland, Southern World, APTC, Tourism Australia, Pacific Destinations, Pan Pacific, Insight Australia Travel and Goway. As part of the Southern Great Barrier Reef Destination, the success of these trade ready products – Great Keppel Island Hideaway, Capricorn Caves, Empire and Edge Apartment Hotels, are key to growing our destination.
These operators have committed to working with us over a number of years in tourism trade distribution, attending the annual Australian Tourism Exchange, hosting key ITO’s on famils, contributing financially to our targeted overseas sales missions, and most recently being part of our Trade Training Video productions for key Southern Great Barrier Reef operators who are pro-actively working in this space. We are so very proud of these Young Tourism Leaders, who understand “Destination First Product Second”!
