Outrigger Sun City Resort in Surfers Paradise, Australia, recently had the pleasure of hosting 30 European agents as part of the Queensland on Stage familiarization program last month.
The agents were all key decision makers, product managers, and high-level influencers, who traveled to Australia to expand their knowledge of Queensland to assist in promoting the destination within their respective markets. The participants came from as far as Germany, Italy, Austria, France, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
The agents visited Tropical North Queensland, the Fraser Coast, and Gold Coast regions as part of their familiarization tour.
A welcome cocktail party was held for the agents on Saturday, December 10, at Outrigger Sun City Resort, hosted by General Manager, Grant James, with representatives from Tourism Queensland and Gold Coast Tourism also joining the party.
Queensland on Stage will be in its third year (2006), and has proven to be the most successful trade show in the State with its quality, professionalism, and ability to produce results unsurpassed.
The agents thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Australia and the program gave them valuable time to meet one-on-one with suppliers and trade partners.
Outrigger’s Australian operations anticipate a successful year ahead with preliminary statistics proving a promising growth in the European markets to Australia.
