Geelong Roadshow goes virtual but keeps the fun

Business Events Geelong held its interactive virtual roadshow yesterday, with more than fifty event organisers from all over Australia and abroad attending.

The Meet Geelong Virtual Roadshow included six 10 minute one-on-one meetings with industry, a presentation of Business Events Geelong’s all-new destination video hosted by Nicky Buckley, and a live gin tasting led by Anther Distillery spirit maker Dervilla McGowan.

In the lead up to the event, attendees received a mystery box filled with goodies including three different types of Anther Distillery gin, tonic and a tasting glass.

“With state borders opening up by the end of the year, we thought it was the perfect time to reconnect the industry with buyers in a format which was interactive, engaging and most importantly…fun!” said Business Events Geelong Convention Bureau Manager Mark Day.

Sandra Doyle, who attended the event as a buyer, said the gin tasting “was great.”

“I’m heading down to Geelong as soon as I can,” she said.

Day said he is hopeful that the event will be back again next year.
