DES­TI­NA­TION Port Stephens (DPS) will launch two new busi­ness events guides and a brand slo­gan ‘Un­con­ven­tional Port Stephens’ at AIME, in a bid to at­tract more high-yield­ing cor­po­rate visi­tors to the re­gion.

The Meet­ing and In­cen­tive Plan­ners Guide and Venue and Sup­pli­ers Ref­er­ence Guide show­case lo­ca­tions that can ac­com­mo­date up to 500 del­e­gates and year-round ex­pe­ri­ences such as dol­phin watch­ing, sand­board­ing, para­sail­ing, golf and seafood sun­set cruises.

Lo­cal sup­pli­ers in­clud­ing cater­ers, AV pro­fes­sion­als and event man­agers are also high­lighted.

DPS bdm Re­becca Mor­ley said the new brand slo­gan aimed to high­light how Port Stephens was “easy on the eye, easy on the bud­get, easy to get to and easy to work with”.

“We want com­pa­nies to see that you can suc­cess­fully mix busi­ness with plea­sure in Port Stephens,” Mor­ley ex­plained.

A key fo­cus of the push is to zone in on more in­cen­tive busi­ness from Asian mar­kets like China, In­dia and Tai­wan.

“The ar­rival of 3,000 Chi­nese Amway in­cen­tive del­e­gates to Port Stephens last month showed we have prized scenery and ex­pe­ri­ences that can draw more of this high-yield­ing busi­ness here, with the re­gion en­joy­ing the eco­nomic ben­e­fits,” she said.

DPS will also use its two new guides at other busi­ness events shows through­out the year and has for­warded them to 500 cor­po­rate event plan­ners across Aus­tralia, New Zealand and Asia.

Tourism op­er­a­tors in Port Stephens back­ing the cam­paign and fea­tur­ing in the guides in­clude New­cas­tle Air­port, Fly Pel­i­can, Moon­shadow TQC Cruises, Sand Dune Ad­ven­tures, The An­chor­age, Imag­ine Cruises, Quad Bike King, Fighter World, Port Stephens Pad­dle­sports and Port Stephens Beach­side Hol­i­day Parks.

Des­ti­na­tion Port Stephens will be rep­re­sent­ing these part­ners at the AIME event in Mel­bourne from 20-22 Feb.
