Mice Net : February 2010
18 mice.net upfront briefs Northern Territory - The Northern Territory Convention Bureau is taking 22 partners to AIME in early March -- a record number for the destination. The NT stand will this year incorporate an "inceNTive lounge" -- a new lounge space for six companies offering incentive product in the NT. AIME has been good for the NT in past years. The NTCB was aware of a number of events confirmed from AIME 2009 through both face to face meetings and the post touring program, including the First National Convention 2010, Speech Pathology Australia 2011 National Conference and Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference 2013. Sydney - Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park is having a strong first few months in 2010 hosting events including: the Home and Giving Fair (February 27-28 and March 1-2), Travel Xpo (March 6-7), Sydney Tattoo & Body Art Expo (March 6-8), Sydney Teddy Bear Fair (March 7), Xsport Games (March 6-8), and the Craft Expo (March 11-14). Sydney Showground was also heavily involved in the V8 Supercars race in late 2009. Turn to page 114 for details. Gold Coast - Executive Helicopters offers a five-star professional service for VIP and keynote speaker transfers, as well as providing breathtaking tours of the host city's major attractions for time-poor interstate and international delegates wanting an experience that will fit into the tight schedules. Director of Carillon Conference Management Ashley Gordon said Executive Helicopters made it possible for them to include a high profile speaker in their conference programs. "Due to his busy schedule we literally had 15 minutes to get Bob Carr from the Coolangatta Airport to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre and the only way that was ever going to happen was by air!" Trevor Gardiner, founder of Amlink Technologies, started Executive Helicopters in early 2008. From his extensive experience working on major events across Australia, and as a keen helicopter pilot himself, he saw the need for this type of service to the MICE industry.
