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.
