This past week Showtime Event Group took part in Tourism Australia’s signature incentive conference showcasing why we are Melbourne’s Social Event Specialists.
Starting on the Thursday night, we hosted a group from China at the State Library dining on level 6 of the La Trobe Reading Room. Guests were hosted by the Melbourne Convention Bureau and Cr Philip Li Lui, and enjoyed a menu of local produce. We then surprised them with a secret tour around the outside of the Dome overlooking the Melbourne CBD.
In Perth, the business sessions opened with a traditional welcome to country and a phenomenal performance by Christine Anu. We met with over 32 buyers from 7 different countries, all interested in hearing what’s new in Melbourne, and how we can add excitement to their next incentive programs brought to Melbourne.
Three impressive networking events were then hosted by Crown Towers, COAST at Port Beach, and Dinner at Government House. These events really showcased what makes Australia so popular to overseas markets, including an array of local food and drink, and exceptional entertainment.
As a strategic partner of the Melbourne Convention Bureau, we are honoured to have the opportunity to connect with so many international buyers, and show them why we stand out in Melbourne. It was also a great opportunity to spend some quality time with our ‘Team Melbourne’ counterparts from MCB including CEO Julia Swanston, Kelvin Yip and Natascha Chiang, as well as reconnecting with Kelly Maynard from Business Events Australia.
