Familiarisations and training programs


VisitCanberra hosts a number of international trade familiarisations (famils) each year showcasing the variety of experiences on offer in Canberra and the region. Famils are one of the best ways to learn about Canberra and experience the destination first hand. For further information on famils and training programs, or to register your interest in joining a famil, please contact us.


VisitCanberra can facilitate Webinar training on request, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
