Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

GOLD Coast-based travel ex­pe­ri­ences provider Ex­pe­ri­ence Oz has been named On­line Book­ing Web­site of the Year at the in­au­gu­ral Aus­tralian Travel Awards.

Es­tab­lished in 2005, Ex­pe­ri­ence Oz of­fers moe than 3000 ex­pe­ri­ences in Aus­tralia and New Zealand.

Gen­eral man­ager Clint Gu­den­wa­ger said the com­pany owed its suc­cess to its 40 staff.

Part­ner­ships with au­to­mo­tive groups, over­seas travel agen­cies, tech­nol­ogy solutions and a range of suc­cess­ful con­sumer cam­paigns and pro­grams have en­abled Ex­pe­ri­ence Oz to carve a niche in ex­pe­ri­ence tourism.

“Be­ing Gold Coast-based, we’ve al­ways been big ad­vo­cates for sup­port­ing tourism in the lo­cal re­gion and not just Aus­tralia in gen­eral, and these sum­mer hol­i­days are no dif­fer­ent with us get­ting be­hind lo­cal events and projects in­clud­ing pre­sent­ing the Surfers Par­adise Christ­mas Ad­vent Cal­en­dar, spon­sor­ing Dream­world’s new Sky Voy­ager ride set to launch this sum­mer and a key at­trac­tion within Cur­rumbin Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary,” Mr Gu­den­wa­ger said. “We have also started the roll­out of phys­i­cal stores with the first opened last month at Melbourne Air­port.”
