Byte events announcementJune 4th, 2014 | | industry
This year’s events calendar for Australia and New Zealand’s backpacker industry just got alot more interesting. . . . The Byte is proud to announce two brand new events for 2014. The 6th and 7th of November will see us play host to both ‘BYTExchange’ and the ‘Adventure Travel Awards’. The two events will be held in Sydney, with Byte Exchange offering networking workshops and a conference, while the awards dinner is welcoming 350+ delegates to a fun-filled industry night out.
In detail, Byte Exchange will combine a half day conference with two half days of networking at Darling Harbour. The conference morning will include speakers from inside and outside the industry with an outstanding mix of content for delegates. ‘The Byte’ staff sit on a number of industry committees or panels and will be welcoming content advice from these organisations to suit our markets.
The meeting schedule (workshops) will welcome over 25 travel agents from backpacker and international college businesses – ensuring tour and accommodation providers have their product in front of the right people. The afternoon of the second day will be an opportunity for agents to take part in a local activity familiarisation. Sellers will be free for the afternoon to network, visit more agents or catch up on emails.
10 weeks of online voting and promotions will feed into an evening for celebrating the adventure travel industry in all its glory. Over 30 awards, a celebrity MC, entertainment and 350+ delegates will ensure the biggest night out on the adventure travel sector calendar. We are working with a couple of industry partners to make voting this year even easier while integrating OTA ratings into the awards process.
