Tourism Australia Updates

Recent Update

3 April 2024

Last week Australia’s Minister for Trade and Tourism, Senator the Hon Don Farrell, announced a new business events data dashboard from TRA (accessed here) to help the sector better understand and plan for business events travellers. Business events continue to be a key focus for us at Tourism Australia, and the new data shows the sector contributed $20.9 billion to Australia’s economy in 2023. Our signature Business Events incentive showcase, Australia Next, previously known as Dreamtime, will open registrations next week for Australian industry sellers to participate. If you are involved in this sector, please keep your eye out for an email from our event’s team with all the details. AustraliaNext will be held in Cairns / Gimuy, Queensland from 8 to 10 September 2024, providing the Australian business events industry with the opportunity to connect with qualified incentive buyers from around the world, while showcasing Australia’s best incentive experiences and products. View the results of the 2023 event here.
