BLEND 2020 The Tasmanian Tourism + Wine Industries Annual Joint Luncheon

12.00 - 1.30 pm

(Lunch and Beverages inclusive of Conference Registration)

We're bringing our annual get together with the Tasmanian Wine Industry to the Tourism Conference for a conference luncheon unlike any other.

Local Northern Tasmania wine producers sharing their amazing products with you over an informal sit-down networking luncheon

Don't worry - Even if wine isn't your thing, the food and networking will be great and you will meet some outstanding local Tasmanian producers passionate about what they do and who share many of the same aspirations for Tasmania as we tourism operators do - after all we're all one and the same!

(Just remember, while the wines will be AMAZING, we'll have a big afternoon ahead, so 'tastings' and networking are the order of the day!)

With thanks to our major partners, Host Plus - Official superannuation partner of the Tasmanian tourism industry, and Wine Tasmania

The ultimate tourism networking soiree is back for another year!

For this year's 'Enchanted' we're embracing the warmer weather and heading out to the iconic Josef Chromy Wines.

Think more wine, gourmet BBQ tastings, good tourism company, some surprises (did we mention more wine?) - in a spectacular setting.

We'll be doing networking with appropriate social distancing of course. But, hey, all the elements are there for another great 'Enchanted' night.
