Business Events Cairns in New Zealand
Kylie Brand, Manager of Business Development for Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef, recently joined Business Events Australia and eight other Australian Convention Bureaux in New Zealand on 6 June to promote “What’s New in Australia”.
Over 50 qualified business event buyers attended the one-night, four-course networking dinner held at The Orange, an aptly-named multi-level historic building in Auckland. The collective of Australian Convention Bureaux united forces to build destination awareness and promote business events branding for Australia and individual regions. Business Events Australia presented on behalf of the attending Bureaux, focusing on current and upcoming developments in the Business Events space around Australia.
The fully-vegan dinner was prepared by acclaimed owner and head chef of Paperbark Restaurant in Sydney, Joey Astorga, and was accompanied by presentations from Business Events Australia and a mix of live performances, including a cultural acknowledgement and musical entertainment from Sydney singer/songwriter Mi-Kaisha. The tables featured Australian-inspired centrepieces of fresh fruit and vegetable displays, of which the avocado’s were popular take-aways with the buyers.
