In 2017, ATE was held in Sydney, New South Wales, and was delivered in partnership with Destination NSW. ATE17 provided the opportunity for 803 international and domestic buyers to meet with Australian tourism seller delegates from 555 companies in a total of 50,000 appointments. Before and after the four day program of scheduled business appointments and networking events in Sydney, international buyers and media travelled to other destinations in Australia to experience Australia’s tourism offering first-hand.
ATE18 will take place in Adelaide, South Australia, from 15 to 19 April 2018.
ATE is Australia’s largest annual travel and tourism business-to-business event. The event 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.
