Calling all Champions.
A Catalyst is something that initiates or causes an important event to happen. We know that there are many Tasmanians who attend business events, around the country and internationally, every year that could be hosted in Tasmania.
We are asking those Tasmanians who know of a conference, corporate meeting, incentive, seminar or exhibition, currently held elsewhere, to initiate for that event to be hosted in Tasmania.
By providing Business Events Tasmania with information on the event, the Business Development Team can then prepare a comprehensive bid to win that event for the state.
We call these Catalysts Champions.
Catalyst Program Champions can be involved in the bidding process if they wish to, or they can simply provide information or an introduction to the events key decision maker.
The ultimate objective of this program is to win more business events, and the subsequent economic and social benefits, for Tasmania and your industry.
In the 2009/10 financial year Business Events Tasmania won 106 bids for business events, representing nearly 25 thousand delegates, valued at over $31 million dollars.
This is up 56% on the year before and we intend to win even more business in 2010/11 – particularly with the help of local champions.
