More than 50 industry sellers will be present, and include a range of destinations, hotels and venues, unique products and experiences.

“The event will provide a platform for industry to connect, forge new relationships and build on existing ones,” said Robin Mack, executive general manager commercial & business events, Tourism Australia.

“Each Australian region has exciting new developments to share with customers. Our infrastructure boom has continued during the past two years and we have welcomed a wealth of new accommodation, venues and experiences that will inspire a world-class incentive programme.”

Pre Covid-19, business events was one of the highest yielding sectors of Australia’s visitor economy, with Asia being one of Australia’s most important markets for incentive travel.

“For the year ending December 2019, Australia attracted 314,000 delegates from Asia who contributed A$1.5 billion (US$1.1 billion) in direct expenditure. The showcase event forms part of our broader recovery strategy which is focused on supporting conversion-driving activity and welcoming business events visitors back to Australia as quickly as possible,” he added.
