Several of the destination’s top hotels and DMCs are getting involved to show their support. New Caledonia’s national airline Aircalin, luxe hotels like Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa, Le Meridien Noumea Resort & Spa and Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Spa & Golf Resort plus DMCs like Newcal Events and Pop Events are just some of the providers participating.

The promotion comes as New Caledonia’s MICE industry looks to host even more planners and event attendees in 2020 and 2021, following steady growth to the sector in the last decade.

Jackie Caldwell, MICE Business Development Manager for New Caledonia Tourism in Australia, says, “New Caledonia’s close proximity to Australia, its stunning natural landscapes, world-class hotels and resorts and modern infrastructure make it the ideal destination for an overseas event, meeting or incentive. Increasing numbers of event planners and organisers are waking up to this, and we are pleased to report continuous growth in the MICE segment over the past ten years. Promotions like this are our way of saying we are ready to welcome even more planners and events over the coming two years.”
