Educational and Site Inspections
The Whitsundays is a region that really needs to be seen to be believed. Seeing pictures is one thing but being able to experience the natural beauty of the region is another. Whitsundays Business Events offer a range of educational visits designed for you to see the conference facilities within the region, meet the resort sales teams and experience some of the best recreational activities in the country.

Pre and post touring programs
The Whitsundays destination is a drawcard to conference and incentive attendees. This means that some of your attendees may wish to extend their stay. Our local team can recommend options for the traveller wanting adventure on or off the water or just wanting to relax on a private beach or at a day spa.
