Australian Tourism Exchange 2020
The event brings together Australian tourism businesses, and tourism wholesalers and retailers from around the world through a combination of scheduled business appointments and networking events. It also provides international travel buyers with the opportunity to experience Australia’s tourism offering first-hand through pre and post-event familiarisations.
Around 1,500 Australian seller delegates from approximately 550 companies, 650 key buyer delegates from over 30 countries, and 70 international and Australian media attend this global event.
Organised by Tourism Australia in partnership with Visit Victoria, ATE20 will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 10 to 14 May.
ATE20 is planned to proceed in Melbourne. The city and immediate surrounds have not been impacted directly by the bushfires.
As part of the Australian Government’s National Bushfire Recovery Fund increased support and funding has been allocated to assist tourism businesses’ attendance at the Australian Tourism Exchange.
All registered sellers will be refunded their primary delegate and stand registration fees for ATE20.
