Preparing the ground work now for the next 6 months

Posted Posted in News

It is essential to not lose sight that this time will pass and Tourism will return to normal. In the past we have endured fires, floods, smoke, SARS, GFC, we are certainly a robust breed in Tourism – we have to be. So ensure to spend just a little of your packages on continuing to get your product out there, as people will be looking and planning their next holiday while they are working from home. Our Take You There product is a good option as it’s personal GPS driven and travellers have a visitor centre in their pocket at all times.

Datatrax was pleased to be involved this year in raising funds for educational materials for over 1500 students at Telopea Park Public School covering a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds from Kindergarten to Year 10.   The total raised was over $20,000, and has already enabled a subsidy for a dedicated team of 4 young aspiring scientists to participate in an international science competition in Paris in January 2020 and the only from Australia to qualify.  Funds are also used to provide to this in need and on compassionate grounds.  Pictured is Kerrie Blain pressing the generate numbers button.

On the other side of town,  Beyond Q Books, Canberra’s longest running second hand bookstore, bar and cafe, a long time client decided to also host a touchscreen spending only a fraction more than their national slideshow promotion. Again using the screen Simon and Jenny can profile the live music in the store, and the fantastic unique relaxing space they have created. Of course you would “like” them after picking up an antiquarian or special interest book and a lovely time in the cafe or bar.
