Destination NSW will host its 2016 United Kingdom and Europe trade mission next month to showcase a wide range of Sydney and regional NSW tourism products and destinations to hundreds of key trade partners and travel trade media.
NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said it will provide a fantastic opportunity for overseas agents and product managers to learn more about the exciting new experiences on offer across the State.
“Through our tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, the NSW Government is committed to growing tourism across key international markets and the United Kingdom and Europe trade event will provide a wonderful platform for the NSW tourism industry to engage with international tourism buyers,” he said in a statement.
The 2016 Program will include information and networking sessions with the aim of increasing overnight visitor expenditure from each market.
Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said the trade mission will help to further position NSW as Australia’s number one tourism and events destination to a global audience.
The United Kingdom and Europe trade mission will be held from 5 – 14 April 2016 across London, Manchester, Glasgow, Dusseldorf, Berlin and Frankfurt and Paris.
Attendees will also have the chance to win a return economy flight to Sydney courtesy of airline partners Qantas and Qatar Airways, to experience some of NSW’s best attractions.
