Gold Coast hosts major tourism conference
Assistant Tourism Minister Meaghan Scanlon said the event formed part of the line-up of business conferences secured for the Coast following the success of the Commonwealth Games.
“The momentum of the games continues to build,” Ms Scanlon said. “Staging this event on the Gold Coast reinforces our city’s position as one of Queensland’s major business event hubs.”
“Travel agents play an important role in helping tourists decide their next destination. We’re working tirelessly to build the profile of the Gold Coast in Asia – Hosting Corroboree Asia helps us do just that.
It’s the third year in a row the Gold Coast has been chosen to host one of Tourism Australia’s key events, following the Corroboree West tourism event in 2017 and the Australian Tourism Exchange in 2016.
“That’s why the Palaszczuk Government is investing record funding in the tourism sector, including an extra $180 million over the next year.”
“Entrusting Destination Gold Coast to host back-to-back trade events for key international visitor markets including Asia, has afforded us an invaluable opportunity to showcase our diverse tourism portfolio,” Ms Battista said.
