Corroboree West 2017
(09 Oct 17 - 14 Oct 17)

Corroboree West 2017

The inaugural Corroboree West event will be held on the Gold Coast in Queensland Australia, from 9 to 14 October, 2017. Corroboree West is an Australia-based trade event combining a training workshop and familiarisation visits exclusively for qualified Aussie Specialist agents from the UK, Europe, and the Americas. These qualified Aussie Specialists are front-line travel sellers from retail agencies and wholesale who actively sell Australia as a preferred long-haul destination to travellers.

This event provides a professional forum for Australian sellers to train those qualified Aussie Specialists and strengthen specific product knowledge.  In addition, through familiarisation visits, the Aussie Specialists will have first-hand experience with quality Australian tourism products, enhancing their ability to promote and sell Australia.

Approximately 300 qualified Aussie Specialists from the following markets will be invited to participate in Corroboree West 2017. Agents will be divided into small groups of agents which will rotate around the workshop so each Australian seller will see every Aussie Specialist agent.
