In­bound Up North Suc­cess for ATEC!

Travel Daily - - News -

ABOUT 120 travel in­dus­try del­e­gates de­scended on Port Dou­glas last month for the an­nual ATEC In­bound Up North (IUN) B2B event, kick­ing off with a fan­tas­tic wel­come func­tion on board the Ca­lypso Reef cruiser moored in the Port Dou­glas ma­rina.

In its 19th year, IUN is one of the big­gest events on the in­dus­try calendar, giv­ing lo­cal busi­nesses the chance to show­case their prod­uct to the in­ter­na­tional buy­ers who help to sell their prod­uct to the world.

A full day of B2B work­shop meet­ings were hosted by QT Port Dou­glas fol­lowed by a spec­tac­u­lar water­side din­ner where guests were greeted by a beau­ti­ful sun­set and ris­ing of the full moon while sit­ting un­der Moroc­can tents.

They also had their taste buds wowed with some of the best lo­cal food thanks to Ochre Restau­rant and Cater­ing.

Danc­ing the night away was the per­fect end to a busy sched­ule of meet­ings.

Del­e­gates rounded off the ex­pe­ri­ence with a day of ac­tiv­i­ties pro­fil­ing six North Queens­land prod­ucts.
