New Venues, New Brand, New Guide
Released by Newcastle Convention Bureau on Monday, 18 June 2012
The first ever Newcastle Conference and Meeting Planners Guide has been launched and is becoming an invaluable tool for industry professionals.
Business Tourism and Conventions Developer GEORGIA MURPHY says now is the right time for Newcastle to put our stamp this industry.
"Every day the facilities and services available for meeting and conferences in Newcastle are expanding. The guide features the recently developed Merewether Surfhouse and new providers East Coast Experiences, Amokura Charters and Newcastle Helicopters."
"With an expanding economy, thriving hospitality industry and a growing community, Newcastle was in need of its own guide. Tourism and economic development for Newcastle go hand in hand and we have been able to use the award winning Newcastle brand to present a consistent image for the city."
"The Newcastle Conference and Meeting Planners Guide will be a valuable tool for conference and meeting organisers thinking planning an event in Newcastle. It encompasses the very best of Newcastle's conference capabilities and reflects the quality options that the city offers."
Newcastle Convention Bureau is a service unit of The City of Newcastle and has been responsible for marketing the city as a conference destination for the past 19 years. Each year, Newcastle Convention Bureau injects between $9M and $12M into the local economy through bidding and winning conferences for and on behalf of Newcastle.
An electronic copy of the Newcastle Conference and Meeting Planners Guide is available here, and you can also request a copy online or call Newcastle Convention Bureau on 02 4974 2998.
