WANGARATTA will be the centre of attention next month when it hosts a tour of business professionals from the Asia- Pacific region.
The familiarisation tour on February 15 and 16 will precede Melbourne’s Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo.
National and international buyers will be told of the North East’s premier business event destinations and facilities.
Wangaratta will be one of 15 tour destinations offered to guests, alongside the Yarra Valley, Phillip Island and Daylesford.
Wangaratta Council’s tourism development co-ordinator Emma Keith was pleased Wangaratta’s offer was taken up.
“It clearly shows the interest in our regional offer and quality of our submission to be involved in the program,” Ms Keith said.
The expo is a leading event in the Asia-Pacific for the professionals who organise meetings, incentives, business travel and events.
