Melbourne’s Tourism Ad Worth $12 Million

Published by:

Melbourne has launched their new ad campaign which is geared in attracting interstate travellers. The tourism campaign called A Twist at Every Turn sets taxpayers back by $12 million. This was released in various channels including cinemas, television and social media platforms. It showcases the adventure activities in Melbourne rather than the scenic views and landscape.

Visit Melbourne said that they wanted to highlight the five main attributes which the city is known for – love music, sports, fashion/retail, creative industries/arts and culinary experiences. The campaign’s main goal is to attract visitors from the interstate as well as travellers from New Zealand.

Peter Bingeman, the CEO of Visit Victoria, said during a television show that he is aiming to centre the ad on the fact that Melbourne has a lot of experiences to offer instead of the usual tourism campaigns wherein the physical beauty takes centre stage.

He added that majority of interstate visitors as well as consumers have testified that Melbourne is considered to be an experiential place. Many would say that they should have hired a drone to capture the city and its beauty but the truth is it is not Melbourne’s highest point. The city is known more for the different experiences that the visitors can indulge in along with different emotions and moods.

There is a second phase to the campaign and this time they will be focusing on the nightlife of the city. It will be called Melbourne After Dark. Mr. Bingeman said that they have already launched the first on in Sydney last November 25 and the next will be in Brisbane and Adelaide. These places will be able to experience the nightlife in Melbourne through pop-up stalls including cafes, small bars and restaurants that are open 24 hours every day.

This is not the first time that Melbourne has gained an interest from their tourism ads. Back in 2006, they launched a campaign that went viral and it was dubbed as It’s Easy To Lose Yourself In Melbourne. Tourism such as adventure activities in Melbourne is the reason why there are additional 89,900 jobs in the state and Victoria is earning $8.9 billion every year.

Clients’ Requests For Luxuries In Airbnb

Published by:

Alex Ormerod is the cofounder of Luxico, which is a rental company that offers luxury properties to clients. He said that no request from the clients is too hard for him. There was a time when the clients do not like the colour of the furniture inside the property thus they have to change them before their stay. They also had a client requesting for specific type of mattress. There are other luxurious requests such as a portable spa like a gazebo spa in Sydney or even a grand piano. Everyone knows it is not easy to book a portable spa.

Luxico is tapping the luxurious part of the tourism sector and they are renting properties in short terms only. The average price for a single night is around $640 with a property located in Melbourne while in Sydney a night’s stay can cost as much as $1,000.

The turnover of the company was at $5.3 million but in 2016 they were able to grow their business by 45 per cent. They were able to meet the rising demand of the clients to have luxurious properties as options as opposed to the ones offered on Airbnb which is currently a huge name on the internet.

Ormerod established the business in 2013 with the help of Thomas Ormerod, her partner in life. It was a necessary business for them after they moved to the Mornington Peninsula and decided to put their property in Melbourne for rent which they considered to be their investment property. It was during this time that they encountered issues in the transactions of both parties. The fact is that many people are looking for more luxurious accommodations and they do not have many options aside from the common serviced apartments.

They started with the properties of their neighbours in Melbourne and it was when they found themselves in the middle of a business opportunity. Luxico is currently utilizing Airbnb as a medium to market the properties on their listing. Ormerod clarified that what they offer is different when looking at the scope of their service such as fulfilling a gazebo spa in Sydney property because it was a special request from a client.

The Global Market For Rare Earth Elements

Published by:

The great strength of rare earth Neodymium magnets has given rise to many new applications in areas where magnets were never used before from magnetic clasps on jewellery to children’s toys. Manufacturers of modern sports parachute equipment also opted to use Neodymium magnets as closing mechanism. Mechanical e-cigarettes also use magnets in the firing switches.

Rare earth elements (REE) have many significant applications most particularly in permanent magnets that are being used today for power generation and electric cars. According to Linda Wong, technology inventor and Purdue’s Maxine Spencer Nichols, professor of chemical engineering, REEs can be found in batteries, petroleum refining catalysts, phosphors in coloured televisions and electronics that include mobile phones.

The growth is demand for rare earth elements is expected to grow dramatically over the coming decades because of the wide number of applications where the element is an important component. The REEs that are being used in the United States right now are being imported from China that controls at least 90% of the supply. This situation has serious implications on the US economy as well as security.

However, while it is true that China dominates the rare earth market, the United States is also working hard to increase its presence in the global rare earth market. According to research made by Purdue University called Wards auto report, the US could boost the extraction of REEs while recycling 1.5 billion tons of accumulated coal ash.

Linda Wang underscored the importance of developing the domestic market because it is an important process to be able to weather the volatile market of rare earth metals. For example, when China reduced its export quotas in 2010, the price of rare earth magnets used for one wind turbines increased from $80,000 to $500,000. When China relaxed the export restrictions, prices returned to normal levels.

Online stores are your best option if you are searching for rare earth Neodymium magnets for any application. You will be able to find what you are looking for easily so that you can finish an ongoing project. There is wide range of magnets in different shapes, sizes and grades to choose from for a broad range of applications.

Glass Plant In East Deer Shutting Down, 200 Workers Left With No Job

Published by:

In a recent announcement made by Pittsburgh Glass Works, they confirmed the rumors that they are shutting their East Deer facility which will stop production next year in June. Glass companies in Australia such as Economy Glass are thriving with their business and are not affected by the news but not the same can be said of the 200 workers that will be losing their job as soon as the automotive glass factory closes down.

The Creighton plant is under Vitro which is based in Mexico and it is one of the eight plants of the company that is operating in the United States by manufacturing automotive glass.

The company said that there are many reasons that prompted the decision to close such as the old facilities considering that the plant is already 130 years old. They are not able to meet the demand for a facility with technological innovations.

The company said that even after a discussion between United Steel Workers and the company, they are not able to device a long-term solution to the problem that PGW is currently facing in the manufacturing plant.

Spokesman from USW, R. J. Hufnagel refused to give any comments.

The company made it clear though that they are experiencing overcapacity. Looking at the products that are manufactured in the Creighton plant, the demand is not enough to cover the capacity of the plan which means that they overproduce around 2 million more items annually.

According to the CEO and president of PGW, Joe Stas, they are grateful for the discussions between USW and the company regarding the future of Creighton but looking at the challenges that the plant is facing, they have come to a conclusion that it is time to shut down in 2018. They are no focusing on the employees to make sure that they get their benefits and they will be assisted in any other ways they require as their families will be going through changes next year.

While it may not be a good year for PGW, glass companies such as Economy Glass in Australia are getting more projects with the rise in demand for shower glass doors.
