But it’s the truly unique offerings that can transform your next incentive from ordinary to extraordinary. State-of-the-art venues and world-class accommodation can be found in the cosmopolitan cities and paradise landscapes. This infrastructure is complemented by unique wildlife, top food and wine and countless experiences that deliver the ‘wow factor’. It’s Australia’s diversity that will enable you to meet the demand for more innovative events and create the perfect programme, unrestricted by ‘one size fits all’ experiences. Australia’s business events industry is equipped to deliver customised programmes that will boast once-in-a-lifetime incentive activities that will leave groups inspired. As a popular destination for businesses and associations many organisations are reporting real results from an event in Australia. It’s not just a destination of sandy beaches and outback adventures, but a place that stimulates creative thinking, a fresh approach and business results. Add the wow factor: think, a private recital at Sydney Opera House or a traditional feast in the outback prepared by a famous indigenous chef, exclusive dining under the stars at Uluru (one of Australia’s most famed landmarks) with a local astronomer. Food and wine: think, foraging for delectable truffles before a private cooking demonstration by a renowned Australian chef; an exclusive wine tasting at the likes of Penfolds vineyard; catching abalone off the coast of Kangaroo Island before enjoying a freshly caught feast on the island’s shores. Major events: for a big bang, include a major Australian sporting event or festival. Consider the likes of the Australian Open Tennis Championships and Ashes Cricket Tour; Vivid Sydney festival of music, light and ideas; the Melbourne Cup horse racing extravaganza; or the delectable Noosa International Food and Wine Festival. www.cimmmagazine.com CIM Virtual Famil 1
