Hi,

April is one of the quietest months for us and this year wasn't much different, way too many school and public holidays which means very little corporate travel. We're looking forward to the much busier months of June, July and August. The timing isn't too bad tho as we've just brought on our new team member ... more details about her below.

In this month’s edition of Capital News:

* CBD travel warnings
* New team member
* Blog update

CBD travel warnings -

April was very quiet around the country (other than the first week or two in Perth) and May isn't looking too busy yet either. Brisbane is yet to really pick up but Darwin is coming in to silly season and will be packed for the next 4 or 5 months. Almost every week the hotels will be full midweek with The Ghan.

Here are some of the major dates to look out for over the next month or so:

Canberra: 

May 13            Federal Budget     (We can still organise rooms at decent rates)

Darwin:

May 15, 16     Lions Club International Convention
May 22, 23

Sydney:

May 20 - 22     CEBIT Australia (IT conference)

New team member -

Earlier this week we welcomed aboard our newest team member, Lisa Sorgini. We had a number of strong candidates in the interview process but Lisa's professionalism shone through. Like Susan before her, she didn't have any actual travel industry experience other than doing a travel course but has management and customer service skills. Her training is coming along well so if you are speaking to her in the next week or two please be gentle.
 

Blog update -

A few days down in Sydney, the face of our new team member and a Brisbane's hotel gets named as one of the best in the world ... to find out more about what's been happening around here, click on the link below:
