Hey Hot Stuff!

But first, please allow us to introduce you to the people behind the computer screen:
Sarah (Founder) has experience in Sales & Marketing throughout the Tourism & Hospitality Industry across various markets worldwide (Australia, UK, Europe & USA). She has represented various businesses at trade & consumer shows at the highest levels in conjunction with Tourism Australia, including the International Tourism Borse (Berlin), Australian Tourism Exchange (Cairns & Melbourne), DEMA (Las Vegas), Vakantiebeurs (Holland) & TNT Travel Show (Sydney & London)..... just to name a few. She previously won the "Living Our Values" award at Tour Operator Topdeck's Global Sales Conference in recognition of her business morals and has built up a wealth of contacts throughout her years in the industry. More recently in Cairns, she has dedicated her time to assisting small family-owned businesses build their brand through social media & digital marketing with Coast 2 Coast Solutions marketing consultancy.
Becoming increasingly frustrated with expensive marketing proposals, Sarah launched What's Hot NQ - a community project that promotes ALL businesses in North Queensland cost effectively. This means that when you search on What's Hot, you will see the very best of Cairns; no matter how big or small the business is!
What's Hot NQ is proud to support the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation, donating a percentage of all proceeds to the cause. On the 30th of December 2018 (2 days prior to the website officially launching for it's first year), $1,000 was donated thanks to the support from the businesses you see advertised on this site. We are well underway to hitting many more milestone donations throughout 2019.
