Sunshine Coast up
THE Sunshine Coast has been breaking records too, hosting $40.8 million worth of business events last year.
The record year involved a total of 27,384 delegates, with overall numbers up 10% and international visitors increasing by 165%.
Business Event Sunshine Coast (BESC) is expecting an even busier period in the year ahead.
“With hotels in many cities now charging very high accommodation rates, we can offer better value for the conference dollar,” said the coast’s business events manager Tiffany Bower.
