A group of incentive and conference organisers from New Zealand got familiar with Tasmania on a recent Business Event Australia educational.

Highlights of the visit included an historic walking tour of Hobart, dinner at Dark Mofo’s Winter Feast, a self guided tour of Mona and a Pennicot Wilderness Journeys Experience.

A number of hotel site inspections and lunch at Frogmore Creek Winery.

Tourism Australia’s executive general manager of commercial and business events, Robin Mack says the organisation has busy ramping up marketing and distribution activity, to ensure planners know Australia is open for business. 

“This includes hosting famils with our key international markets, such as New Zealand, to showcase the ease of entering Australia, the wealth of new business events product available, and that Australia’s business events industry is ready to welcome them back.”
