Brisbane Festival lures in tourists

BRISBANE – 14 September 2012

Barely a week into Brisbane Festival and the city has already noticed a welcomed tourism boost, according to accommodation website Wotif.com.

Wotif.com Executive General Manager, Joachim Holte, said bookings into the city were already up on last year with three weeks of the festival still remaining.

“While we’ve seen a strong increase in bookings within the CBD, the Greater Brisbane areas are also proving popular among festival goers,” Mr Holte said.

“Brisbane Festival is always a major tourism drawcard for the city and seems to be getting more popular every year.”

Wotif.com teams up with Destination NSW to boost tourism

BRISBANE – 6 September 2012

Wotif.com and Destination NSW have launched a campaign this week to boost tourism in the state over the school holidays and coming months.

Wotif Group Executive General Manager – Australia, Joachim Holte, said the two-week NSW Getaways campaign would showcase the best of what New South Wales has to offer over the school holidays and the spring/summer period.

“New South Wales is filled with activities and attractions perfect for family holidays, and with the weather warming up it’s an ideal time to take a short-break,” Mr Holte said.
