Global Ballooning Australia representatives Kate & Peter attended the 2017 Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE17) in May. Sydney was the host destination for the country’s largest annual tourism trade show.
The newly constructed International Convention Centre (Australia’s largest exhibition and convention centre) was the space which hosted this B2B event; known within the industry as ‘speed dating’ due to the busy schedule of 15 minute appointments across 4 x 9hr days.
The Global team, amongst many other Victorian and National companies came together to conduct meetings to generate future tourism business for Australia.
The event brought together 548 international travel companies from more than 30 countries and 555 Australian tourism businesses who conducted over 45,000 business appointments. Relationship building and education of our experience is an important aspect of our business.
Our industry is resilient - we come together to support one-another which is what I love most.
“You can either have one guy lifting a billion pounds by himself, and it takes many years of planning and preparation – or you can have a billion people, each lifting one pound, and it takes a mere moment. This is the power of unity.” – Jacque Fresco.
