Organisers of AIME 2019 have announced a strong line-up of Australasian exhibitors that includes Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP), Meet in Regional NSW (New South Wales), and Tourism New Zealand (TNZ).
M&OP, home of the Australian Open, will showcase its range of venues as well as a new function centre opening in 2022.
The NSW government will have its largest stand ever at AIME next year, with some 24 co-exhibitors from across the region in participation.
NSW minister for tourism and major events, Adam Marshall, said in a press statement: â€śThe conferencing industry is currently worth A$173 million (US$124.5 million) in overnight visitor expenditure to rural and regional NSW, and we look forward to growing this number even further as a result of our presence at AIME 2019.â€ť
Meanwhile, TNZ will feature some of the country’s most scenic locations, recently celebrated as the Peopleâ€™s Choice â€“ Favourite Destination at the 2018 Australian Travel Awards.
â€śNew Zealandâ€™s business event offering continues to grow, with two new world-class convention centres under construction in Auckland and Christchurch and one announced for Wellington (in early December). The range of activities and experiences available in New Zealand are varied and unique, offering conference delegates a memorable experience. We are excited to showcase this at AIME 2019,â€ť said Anna Fennessy, TNZ global manager business events.
