Tourism Australia returns to ATM to reinforce its relationships with the trade.
Although the authority has a smaller stand this year, they will use the exhibition as a key networking event, particularly in the light of increased connectivity to Australia.
“We have about 15 products from Australia joining us on the stand and a further 15 suppliers attending the show with on their own accord or as part of their company’s stand,” said Andrew Oldfield, distribution development manager for the Gulf Countries, Tourism Australia.
Among the companies that will be at the show are Dreamtime Resorts, Broadbeach; the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney; Warner Village Theme Parks; JC Travel Professionals, Marriott International, Sydney; the Stella Hospitality Group, Surfer’s Paradise; and the tourist promotion boards for New South Wales, the Gold Coast and Victoria.
The Gulf’s increased importance for Australia is evident from the fact that Tourism Australia chairman Tim Fischer will be in Dubai around ATM time to meet with key industry stakeholders.
