GC secures Amway incentive


DESTINATIO­N Gold Coast has fended off competitio­n from Tokyo and Hawaii, to land the hosting rights for the Amway Taiwan

2019 Leadership Seminar in November.

The five-day event is expected to generate $2.8 million for the local economy attracting more than 950 of Amway Taiwan’s top-selling distributo­rs and representa­tives.

Queensland Tourism Industry Developmen­t Minister, Kate Jones, said securing the event was a coup for the state, with Cairns having hosted the Amway China event in June. “Winning the bid to secure a second Amway event for Queensland above other internatio­nal competitor­s demonstrat­es the strength of our tourism offering and the importance of business events to Queensland’s tourism economy,” she said.
