23 May 2018
Tourism Australia's new multi-million dollar Boosting Business Events Bid Fund Program has helped secure the world’s largest public transport event, the Union International des Transports Publics Global Public Transport Summit 2021.
The Bid Fund Program, a $12 million fund managed by Tourism Australia’s Business Events Australia unit gives event bidders a competitive edge against other international destinations and was launched by Australia's Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, the Hon Steven Ciobo MP, in March this year.
The Summit will be held in Melbourne and is estimated to deliver a $9.4 million boost to the economy with 2,000 delegates from all over the world meeting at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in June 2021.
