Site Inspections & Educationals
Site inspections and Educational programs provide event organisers with the opportunity to travel to the region and experience products first-hand, which we know is one of the most effective ways to secure business.
Funding for Site Inspections Support
BECGBR invests heavily in supporting site inspections for event planners who have qualified business for the region. This support may include flights and whilst we do allocate funding for ground costs we do seek the support of our BE members with hosting accommodation, meals and touring activities. We can also support flight costs for educational programs arranged by our BE members. These are assessed based on the range of products included to showcase the business event offering of the region, qualification of buyers, when the buyers were last in the region and support provided by members. Please contact [email protected] for further information.
BE Immersed Educational Program
BE Immersed: Cairns & Great Barrier Reef is an invitation-only educational program for small groups of event planners from the same sector who have not visited Cairns & Great Barrier Reef recently and are considering our region. The once annual event has been replaced with a series of smaller, bespoke educational programs throughout the year and are generally 2 nights/3 days and are fully hosted by BECGBR. If you have an event planner in mind who you think would benefit from this program, let us know. Members have the opportunity to be part of the educational program, contact [email protected] for consideration.
