Why tasmania

Tasmania is currently winning praise on the world stage for its accessibility, clean air and unspoiled wilderness. Its diverse arts and cultural scene, premium food and beverage industry are receiving accolades across the globe. Tasmania may be a small island but it’s big on produce and experiences.

Business Events Tasmania specialises in catering for small meetings, large conferences (from 10 to 1,100 people) and trade shows that provide a world-class business event experience.

Our two major cities are located close to their respective CBDs, with Hobart and Launceston airports only 15 minutes’ drive from their city centres. This accessibility connects visitors with major conferencing venues, hotels, transport, restaurants and entertainment, all within a short flight of Melbourne and Sydney.

Tasmania’s natural wonders have been given an international spotlight, thanks to its majestic mountain ranges, rivers and coastal tracks, all complimented by an abundance of native wildlife and flora. Lovers of nature and the outdoors flock to our state, sampling our wide range of experiences, from hiking to kayaking, biking to fishing our pristine waterways. Our colonial history and convict past is preserved in the many buildings that dot the landscape, still holding strong the stories that represent our past.

Sustainability

Business Events Tasmania recognises the value of sustainable practices for meeting organisers and delegates and is very supportive of Tasmania’s capacity for delivering sustainable events.

We understand the importance of being a sustainable state that considers its economic, social and ecological footprint as it moves into the future. Our major cities and local councils are committed to finding practical and effective ways to improve energy use throughout the organisation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Together we can make a difference in reducing waste and taking responsibility for the future of our environment.

There is an increasing public consciousness around the reduction of waste recycling and business events are no exception. Providing a waste conscious service at business events will not only have benefits for the natural environment but can also enhance the profile of your business or event and has the potential to save you money.

We encourage the use of recyclable, refillable and reusable products, support the promotion of your sustainable message and recommend sharing waste management reports to inform future planning. Together we can make a difference in reducing waste and taking responsibility for the future of our environment.
