Australia’s only dedicated polar expedition cruise agency, iExpedition.com, based in Noosa, won the Tours and Transfers – Small Business Category in the 2018 Sunshine Coast Business Awards, after only its first year of trading.
The Awards provided a chance to stop, collaborate and listen to the region’s top talent at the annual event. Normally focused on cooler destinations, iExpedition felt the Sunshine Coast heat waiting for their category, the last of the evening. Back with their brand new invention – an online expedition cruising platform to search and book from the largest collection of cruises to Antarctica and the Arctic available online – iExpedition took out the award from a category of 9 finalists.
Noosa was well represented at the awards, with RACV Noosa, Noosa Food & Wine Festival, Icecream Curls, and Laguna Pest Control all winning their respective categories.
Ben Alexander, Director of iExpedition.com commended his team of supporters and the local business community on the win and the success of the past 12 months.
“This achievement is a testament to our focus and determination to deliver a specialised expedition cruising platform to the Australian market, as well support we’ve received from business mentors, local Chamber groups and the Peregian Digital Hub. The Sunshine Coast has such a high standard of businesses and this year there were more entries than ever before”, he said. “Winning this award coupled with our impressive first-year results where we eclipsed our sales targets by a massive 165%, reaffirms our belief that iExpedition.com’s specialised focus on niche cruising product is what Australian travellers are looking for. We are redefining the way travellers and travel agents search for and book Arctic and Antarctica cruises.”
iExpedition is excited to continue their own expedition, providing transparent information, expertise and prioritising customer service excellence across 1,000 voyages to our polar regions. We love sending Australian and international travellers on their journey of a lifetime and returning them as champions for our incredible planet.
