Gold Coast Will Host Chinese Travel Agents

By Andrew Bell

Surfers Paradise and the greater Gold Coast area have always been a mecca for tourists and this reputation looks set to stay with around 300 of China's top travel agents coming for a Corroboree.

The agents are all specialists in selling Australian holidays to Chinese tourists and the 2014 event will help to increase tourism spend in the state, according to Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games Jann Stuckey.

"The beautiful Gold Coast’s stunning beaches, wildlife attractions and incredible produce, ticks all the boxes for what Chinese visitors look for in an Australian holiday – it’s the ideal destination for this event," she said.

Queensland benefits from visitor spending which is great for residents of Surfers Paradise Property.

China is the state's fastest growing market with the highest spending, so this event may help boost the economy even further.

Last year around 184,000 Chinese visitors came to the Gold Coast and travellers spent $536 million throughout Queensland.

This event will allow the Gold Coast to show off all it has to offer and this may deliver bigger tourism numbers, bringing in money to the local economy.

Increased tourism may create new jobs, encourage spending which will benefit those living in real estate in Surfers Paradise.
