TTN, 17th June 2015:

A private company called Travel Massive is hosting an event called ‘Hobartica’ that will bring Hobart tourism operators together to discuss opportunities that surround Hobart being a near port to Antarctica.

No representative has attended any of these events, so if they do try to sell you something, we didn’t condone it – but the networking opportunity is undeniable and should be taken advantage of.
