Tourism Talk

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - TOURISM TALK -

A busy month with Tourism Awards, An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ings, Wa­ter Front Ad­vi­sory group and Dain­tree Gate­way meet­ings, An­nual Re­ports and au­dits, But its not all ad­min­is­tra­tion, as the Chal­lenge Cairns event con­tin­ues to grow, sup­port of the com­mu­nity will be para­mount to its suc­cess. With live cov­er­age of the event, sig­nage of our re­gion will be need to be prom­i­nent. X Fac­tor UK, a show with over 19.7 mil­lion view­ers, has fin­ished film­ing with Danni Minogue, Natalie Im­bruglia and con­tes­tants at Bali Hai. Mas­ter Chef UK has been in town this week film­ing and great footage of our re­gion will go to 30 mil­lion view­ers in the UK. OK Mag­a­zine re­leased this week­end a fea­ture on the stars of Vam­pire Di­aries, a US se­ries with a huge fol­low­ing, in Port Dou­glas and Cape Tribulation. TPDD has been sup­port­ing these ac­tiv­i­ties heav­ily with great sup­port from the in­dus­try. Now all we need now is Oprah and Bill Clin­ton, to top off some great des­ti­na­tion aware­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties. The first round of pro­mo­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties with the Chal­lenge Event has gone out this week to our mem­bers, so give us a call if you missed out. The town is start­ing to fill for the eclipse and en­quiries are build­ing so con­sider your rate struc­tures and of­fers for that pe­riod. The long awaited brand­ing launch for our re­gion is due this Fri­day. TQ in con­junc­tion with TTNQ, with in­put from TPDD, have worked on this for many months and I am sure the out­come will be de­scrip­tive and emo­tive. More great air­line news with China South­ern con­sid­er­ing flights into Cairns and Tiger look­ing at in­creas­ing flights out of Mel­bourne. Last week­end we had Sell TNQ in Port Dou­glas, a great op­por­tu­nity to show­case our des­ti­na­tion to top in­cen­tive and con­fer­ence buy­ers from around Aus­tralia. Fi­nally, well done to all the award win­ners in our re­gion.
