DISCOVER AND EXPLORE NOOSA - A COCKTAIL OF EXPERIENCES
After a successful debut last year, the Discover and Explore Noosa Expo is expecting to draw large crowds from both industry and the public when it showcases the region at the Australis Noosa Lakes Resort on October 10.
Themed "A Cocktail of Experiences" the event provides an opportunity for the tourism industry to work more closely together in promoting Noosa's range of attractions and experiences.
The one stop shop targets accommodation providers, booking agents, conference organizers, tourist operators and the general public. It is designed to increase their knowledge of the large variety of activities available.
One of the major focuses this year is providing a platform for the industry to package and promote holiday experiences that will encourage repeat visits and longer stays resulting in greater tourism dollars being spent in the region.
Tourism CEO, Phil Harman said, " It's a perfect way for accommodation staff to meet a large number of tour operators in person and talk about what's on offer to value add to their guests stay. It also provides the local community with great ideas on what to do when family and friends come to stay on holidays".
Up to 65 exhibitors will be on show from all over Noosa in one great location providing the opportunity to see the best the area has to offer from the hinterland to the coast.
The Discover and Explore Noosa Expo is open to the public from 10.00am till 3.30pm on Sunday 10th October followed by an industry only function.
PRIZES APLENTY AT 2004 EXPO
Noosa tourism operators and industry have set out to help locals experience more of what's in their own backyard at the Discover and Explore Noosa Expo 2004 being held at Australis Lakes Resort on October 10.
During the course of the day, over $5,000 of prizes contributed by the local industry is up for grabs.
River cruises, diving lessons, spa treatments, Fraser Island and Everglades tours, the ultimate coffee indulgence and luxury accommodation are just a few of the many different prizes that will be on offer.
Many tourist operators provide ways that visitors and locals of all ages can access the wonders of Noosa either independently or with a guide. You can explore the new Noosa Food Trail, learn to surf, discover Noosa's wonderful hinterland or travel by 4WD to the Noosa North Shore.
As part of the Expo, the tourism industry is keen to show both visitors to the region and locals who accommodate family and friends, the vast range of experiences on offer in the Noosa region.
"We want everyone that comes to the Expo to leave feeling they have a better idea of what's available to them and their visitors" said Tourism Noosa CEO, Phil Harman.
To reinforce the experience all attendees will be eligible to win a prize. There will be a prize draw every hour from 10.00 am till 3.00pm with the opportunity to experience a Noosa activity compliments of one of the exhibitors.
