East Coast Roadshow  For Tourism Whitsundays

Last week Industry Development & Trade Manager of Tourism Whitsundays Cait Fleming, travelled all around the East Coast of Australia and Adelaide to educate retail travel agents and product managers all about what the Whitsundays has to offer.

She had the privilege of travelling all over the East Coast and Adelaide with 17 other Whitsundays operators.

“We were on the road to educate retail travel agents and product managers on the variety of experiences and accommodation on offer in The Whitsundays,” she explained.

“As a collective we visited Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane in four days, speaking to nearly 300 agents and product managers in each location.  
“At every event, it was great to see agents we've worked with extensively as a region and new agents who have never been to The Whitsundays.  
“As a region, it's essential for us to do these trade engagement activities both in Australia and overseas to ensure agents stay familiar with The Whitsundays, keeping us as a prime destination in people's minds when planning their holidays.”
