Tradeshow kicks off

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE TEQ Queens­land on Tour tradeshow through the UK and Nordic re­gion has kicked off this week, and Doug has packed his win­ter wool­lies and set off to rep­re­sent the re­gion. The 10-day tour will in­clude des­ti­na­tions such as Copen­hagen, Stock­holm, Helsinki, Lon­don, Manch­ester and Glas­gow and aims to raise aware­ness and the pro­file of the desti­na­tion, to de­velop busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties with key trade part­ners, and pro­vide train­ing ses­sions for re­tail sales and reser­va­tion staff. To sup­port our re­gional push on this tour will be rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cally based prod­ucts Jun­gle Surf­ing and Silky Oaks Lodge. Trop­i­cal North Queens­land will dom­i­nate this tour heav­ily, with seven of the 15 prod­ucts/re­gions from this area and the rest from re­gions in­clud­ing the Whit­sun­days and Sun­shine Coast. It is great to have strong rep­re­sen­ta­tion from TNQ in this long-haul in­ter­na­tional mar­ket, to show off the nat­u­ral as­sets and diver­sity of prod­ucts in our re­gion.

As many would have no­ticed, tourism num­bers have dropped, how­ever feed­back from sev­eral op­er­a­tors in­di­cates a bet­ter Novem­ber than fore­cast. With strong book­ings ahead for the Christ­mas / School Hol­i­day pe­riod, it should be a great end to the year and if our good weather con­tin­ues, it will be a great start to 2014.
