An exciting new concept for the Northern Territory in 2012 will be the staging of the inaugural Alice Stampede mega-familiarisation event in Alice Springs from 12-15 July.
A joint initiative of the Alice Springs Convention Centre and the Northern Territory Convention Bureau (NTCB), this event will enable Business Event planners to visit the heart of Central Australia and gain first-hand experience of the world-class facilities, venues, accommodation and services that are now on offer in this quintessential outback town.
If Alice Springs is on your radar for your next event, register your interest to attend this exclusive famil in July.
Professional Conference Organisers, incentive buyers and event planners from the corporate, association and Government sectors are invited to participate and see for themselves why an event in The Alice is unlike any other.
A highlight of the Thursday to Sunday event will be a day at the races “Alice Springs-style”, a camel trek through the outback, a taste of indigenous culture as well as Alice’s own quirky pop culture, and experiences at Alice Spring’s truly unique venues. Networking with local business event professionals, a Business Forum to learn more about local companies and organisations of relevance to the BT sector, plus infrastructure and accommodation site inspections will complete the programme.
With just 25-30 spaces available on this famil, potential participants are encouraged to register their interest on the NTCB website by clicking here no later than Thursday June 15.
Selected Alice Stampede participants will be provided with flights from their nearest capital city, accommodation, special events and experiences, all meals and most importantly, an awakening to the opportunities that this truly unique region offers.
“We’re delighted to embark on this new joint initiative with our partners at the Alice Springs Convention Centre,” said Scott Lovett, the Director of Business Tourism with the NTCB. “We’re sure that participants on the inaugural Alice Stampede will have their eyes opened regarding the appeal of Alice Springs and especially so, when they realise just how positively an exotic destination like Alice can impact on their bottom line by attracting record attendance.”
