Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix offers networking opportunities

melb-grand-prixThe 2017 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix, which is being held in Melbourne on March 23–26, is emphasising its networking opportunities for business events.

“They are a flexible and innovative partner, developing a bespoke, once in a lifetime experience for incentive travel groups that cannot be experienced anywhere else in Australia,” Bolinger said.

“I highly recommend incorporating this major international event into any business events’ travel program.”

Last year the event hosted 580 individual businesses and around 26,000 corporate guests holding customised meetings over four days of racing.

“Based on previous success hosting roundtable innovation sessions and conferences, we have recognised the potential to engage and inspire guests, and therefore place a great emphasis on developing tailored meetings, events and functions for businesses,” said the Australian Grand Prix Corporation’s general manager of sales, Corina Black.

“The 2017 event will provide businesses and incentive groups the opportunity to showcase their offering at an exhilarating event and have limitless options to enjoy a customised experience in a unique environment.”
