Guests included key wholesalers and product managers, specialist travel agents, tourism industry partners, airlines and travel media. Outrigger Resorts communicated with more than 450 travel industry professionals during the week-long road show.

The 2019 event launched in Brisbane at Blackbird Restaurant, Eagle Street Pier followed by events at Rivers Edge, World Trade Centre in Melbourne and at L’Aqua, Cockle Bay Wharf Darling Harbour in Sydney.

During his welcome address at the Brisbane event, Jeff Wagoner flagged the likely re-entry of Outrigger into Australia if the company could find a beach or beach community-based resort, preferably in Queensland.

He said that Australia, particularly Surfers Paradise, was the perfect market for Outrigger and fitted its objective of being the premier beach resort brand in the world.

Outrigger extends a huge thank you to all travel industry friends for their on-going support and business.
