BRISBANE – 25 July 2012
Three weeks out from Ekka 2012, figures released by leading travel website Wotif.com show Queensland’s largest annual event is shaping up to be a hit with out-of-towners.
Wotif.com has reported an almost 20 per cent increase in room nights booked in the host city, Brisbane, for the Ekka period compared to the same lead time last year.
Wotif.com Executive General Manager Joachim Holte said it was encouraging to see an increased interest from non-locals in this year’s Ekka.
“We’re now three weeks out from Ekka 2012 and it’s encouraging to see already that visitation numbers from outside Brisbane are looking much stronger than last year,” Mr Holte said.
