Canberra Convention Bureau is inviting interstate meeting planners to attend its annual showcase, Canberra on Show, next month.
Traditionally a component of the bureau’s yearly educational program Top Secret, the showcase has previously been open to local meeting planners only.
This year’s enhanced format sees the showcase opening to interstate meeting planners in a bid to educate domestic clients on Canberra’s event possibilities.
“With over 40 exhibitors, from venues to hotels, experience providers to styling suppliers, and regional partners, Canberra on Show allows delegates to gain a better understanding of our destination by connecting directly with a large contingent of local operators,” said Michael Matthews, CEO at Canberra Convention Bureau.
The showcase will take place on Friday 28 February 2020 at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
There are more than 25 destination prizes to be won, including accommodation, unique experiences, tickets to national blockbuster exhibitions and a grand prize $1000 Qantas travel voucher.
Matthews said it is a must-visit trade show for event professionals considering hosting an event in Canberra or keen to deepen their knowledge of the destination.
“This year, we’re partnering with AIS Arena and Trippas White Group to deliver an outstanding destination experience for delegates in one of Canberra’s largest multi-purpose venues, supported by Canberra-based exhibition service supplier SBX,” he said.
