conference venues, accommodation
providers, tour operators, local councils,
regional tourism organisations and service
providers across Victoria.

business events destination, using events to
boost the economies of these areas and to
promote the many and varied offerings and
experiences that cannot be found anywhere
The lure of the city is strong for many event
organisers, with everything on the doorstep,
