TAKE A BOW, DAINTREE
The Daintree received well earnt recognition at the annual Queensland Tourism Awards with 4 golds being awarded to Daintree Discovery Centre (2 gold), Ocean Safari and Cape Tribulation Beach House, an enormous effort that represents the product led resurgence we are seeing for the Daintree region. While visitor numbers have dropped in the past weeks we continue to see stronger visitation than in previous years. TPDD attended Sell TNQ earlier this month, the regional business events tradeshow, where we showcase all the compelling reasons to include Port Douglas and the Daintree in business events programs. Feedback was extremely positive, particularly with the plans for Sheraton Mirage and Hemingway’s Brewery - this market is set to take off in the coming years. I am currently in Germany and the UK on a sales trip joining TTNQ and a number of products from the region training key wholesalers, retail agents and meeting with key stakeholders to look at promotional opportunities for the coming year. With December just around the corner make sure you mark down the TPDD & TTNQ joint member Christmas party on December 9th. We have also managed to secure some great speakers for a member workshop prior to the networking so for those who can make it you will certainly work up a thirst by the end of the day! Canapés provided and a cash bar will be available. If you would like to come along and join in the fun please RSVP to Mikala at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 4th December. TPDD & TTNQ members only event.
