Working together

FCTE has over 120 Fraser Coast business partners across a diverse range of sectors including tour operators, accommodation providers, restaurants, attractions, hire and charter suppliers and retail businesses.

All of these people, along with FCTE, have one thing in common - the desire to grow the Fraser Coast tourism industry. With a state-based focus on 'brand Queensland', coupled with increasing competition from nearby regions, there has never been a more important time for the region to work together.

Our FCTE focus is on growing partnership power in 2019 and building 'brand Fraser Coast'. We invite you to join forces with FCTE and our growing partnership base. Together we can more effectively and efficiently raise the profile of the Fraser Coast as a visitor destination and raise visitation across the region.

Our partners have the opportunity to:

  • access to discounted listings within the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) - the online product bible providing online listings to more than 60 websites including Australia.com, Queensland.com and Visitfrasercoast.com;
  • buy into co-operative campaigns to gain exposure in the drive, interstate and international markets and extend special offers and campaign deals;
  • gain professional mentoring to help grow your business by better leveraging your tourism supply chain;
  • attend workshops, classes and major trade and consumer shows coordinated by FCTE
  • have access to FCTE, TEQ and TA familiarisation progams (famils) that attract bloggers, editorial writers and trade distributors from across Australia and internationally;
  • display product brochures at our FCTE Visitor Information Centres;
  • benefit from FCTE access to media networks, channels and subscriptions.
