Townsville Enterprise Convention Bureau has confirmed more than $9,074,088 worth of confirmed conference and event expenditure for the Townsville North Queensland Region during the financial year to date.
Townsville Enterprise General Manager Tourism & Events, Patricia O’Callaghan, said Townsville is enriched with diversity and appeals to Professional Conference Organisers from a number of industries.
“The conferences, which attract a high number of delegates, are across a number of industries including medical, professional and associations and will provide a significant economic boost for the Townsville North Queensland Region,” Patricia said.
“Based on the feedback we have received from these organisations we are confident that Townsville is being considered as a destination of choice for events, conferences and incentives.”
“Following the release of the Townsville Meeting Planner’s Guide and attendance at the 2012 Professional Conference Organisers Conference on the Gold Coast, Townsville’s profile as a conferencing and events destination is being recognised.”
