The Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE19) brings together Australian tourism businesses, wholesalers, and retailers, from around the world, through a combination of scheduled business appointments and networking events.
The event will also give international travel buyers and media, the opportunity to experience all the changes that have happened around Perth and Western Australia first-hand through pre and post-event familiarisations at a variety of destinations around Perth and regional WA.
About 3,000 delegates, including key Australian sellers and buyers from more than 30 countries, and more than 80 international and Australian media, attend this global event each year.
Organised by Tourism Australia, in partnership with Tourism WA, ATE19 will take place at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 8 to 12, 2019.
