Inbound Up North Success for ATEC!
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.
