In 2015, Australia’s largest annual travel and tourism business-to-business travel trade event returns to the vibrant city of Melbourne, last hosted here in 2009.
Australia Tourism Exchange 2015 has attracted around 100 new Australian tourism products participating in the event for the first time – more than double than the previous two years.
The Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Louise Asher said: “Melbourne is the perfect place to host ATE in 2015 as it is Australia’s home of major events and has world class facilities for all types of major and business events.
“Melbourne is delighted to have the opportunity to host the world’s leading consumer and lifestyle media, together with travel trade media and we will ensure they are able to experience all that Melbourne and Victoria has to offer,” Ms Asher said.
ATE 2015 will be held from June 21-25.
ATE provides a forum for Australian tourism businesses to showcase their products and establish important business links with the people and organisations that take Australian tourism to the international market place.
ATE also provides opportunities for representatives of the international travel industry to experience Australia first-hand, ensuring they are equipped and inspired to send visitors to our shores. ATE delegates participate in business appointments and networking opportunities, with pre and post-famil opportunities also forming part of the program for international buyers and media.
In 2014, ATE was held in Cairns, Queensland.
