Resort News will be in attendance at Peppers Noosa Resort, July 16 when the Refresh Noosa Conference and Expo takes place.

Refresh Noosa is a long-term strategy from the tourism body that aims to position Noosa accommodation as fresh, exciting, and current, to meet and exceed customers’ expectations.

The Refresh Noosa initiative seeks to:

  2. Source member discounts on products and services.

  3. Ensure sustainability in a competitive local, state and international environment.

As part of the strategy, this month’s conference will house more than 30 exhibitors oferring exclusive deals, and guest presenters will include local operators. Among the tourism industry speakers will be chairman of Tourism and Events Noosa, Brett Godfrey, hotel industry expert Michael Moret-Lalli, and Noosa’s chairman and area manager for Mantra Group, Steve McPharlin.

Topics up for discussion include: market competition, economic tourism trends in South-East Queensland, guest expectations, relationships with body corporate and property owners, yield management, and opportunities for group buying.

The expo program will engage the whole Noosa community as local trades, businesses and services are partnering up in the Refresh Noosa initiative.
