There are many benefits to working with retail travel trade partners, such as filling beds or seats in your business during seasonal gaps and exposing your business to new markets. Retail partners include domestic or overseas travel agents, inbound tour operators and international wholesalers.
The Tweed Tourism Company represents tourism operators at various trade events to promote retail-ready product and can offer advice to local businesses on how to work in the distribution network. We also host visiting trade partners together with DNC and DNSW to experience relevant experiences and establish marketing campaigns.
Visiting Trade Program
Hosting trade partners can be very beneficial if you are already underway in the retail trade space as the key decision-makers or frontline retail staff will gain first-hand knowledge of the experiences they are selling to their customers.
In partnership with DNC and DNSW, the Tweed Tourism Company will support trade familiarisations from priority markets that are right for the region and where there are relevant products and experiences on offer.
Trade event calendar
Attending trade events is a great way to meet the right people and promote your business but they can be expensive and require preparation so be sure to consider events that are right for you.
The Australian Tourism Industry Events Calendar is a detailed and up-to-date snapshot of all key events organised by Tourism Australia, State and Territory Tourism Organisations, Regional Tourism Organisations, the Australian Tourism Export Council and other industry bodies.
