The South America Downunder Roadshow visited Auckland last week, then travelled to Melbourne, before stopping at Brisbane before arriving in Sydney on Thursday. Incredible prizes, fantastic Chilean wines and bundles of information for guests. “Roadshows such as this are extremely important to the ongoing development and awareness of tourism opportunities for Australians to South America,” Turismo Chile long haul market manager Juan López said. Country representatives addressed delegates with live presentations and special videos, highlighting the different cultures, cuisines and characteristics of the various South American nations. Argentinian Consul General Ricardo Bocalandro emphasised the importance of Australian travellers to South America, especially considering the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
