Regional Showcase

Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef’s annual Regional Showcase provides professional conference and event organisers the opportunity to experience what Cairns & Great Barrier Reef can provide for your next event from the comfort of your home city. Travelling to Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne in 2022, this is the perfect opportunity for organisers to learn all about new product updates for the region and enjoy an afternoon of networking and entertainment.

If you’re interested in registering your expression of interest to attend the event in 2022, please contact our Business Development Manager, Kylie Brand.

2020 Regional Showcase Connect

To replace our annual in-person lunch, BECGBR developed an alternative online Regional Showcase concept, an interactive online LIVE trivia game which showcased the region in a fun and slightly competitive environment. On Wednesday 16 September 2020, we successfully hosted the LIVE event having over 40 conference and incentive organisers participate.  BECGBR received overwhelming positive feedback from the online hosted event which included interactive video presentations from participating Cairns & Great Barrier Reef business event industry suppliers.

2019 Regional Showcase 

In 2019, Rosie Douglas (Director of Business Events) and Kylie Brand (Manger of Business Development), along with 19 of the regions top business event suppliers travelled to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne over the course of four-days to host professional conference and incentive organisers at a VIP Lunch.

The invitation-only event was held in July at Stokehouse Q in Brisbane, Quay Restaurant in Sydney and Cumulus Up. in Melbourne. Each attendee was treated to an intimate two-course seated lunch amongst tropical table settings with extensive opportunities to meet and mingle with the 19 company representatives.

An engaging, custom-created business events video was played on screens throughout the lunch, showcasing each suppliers product individually and featured the representative in attendance that day. Each supplier’s video was filmed with and linked together by Cairns local celebrity, Tammy Barker, who collaborated with the Business Events Cairns & Great Barrier Reef team and videographer and editor, Glenn Saggers, from Threadless Films.
