egtmedia59Tourism Australia has confirmed that it is seeking expressions of interest from organisations to manage its premier annual travel trade show, the Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE).

The decision follows a recent review of Tourism Australia’s existing distribution activities, including its trade events program, seeking potential efficiencies and better value for industry. EGT_Artical Banner B 250x250

One recommendation of the review was that Tourism Australia consider the option of outsourcing the management of future ATE events.

To help evaluate whether such an option is desirable and viable, Tourism Australia is seeking expressions of interest from organisations to manage ATEs after 2014, an official statement confirmed yesterday.

The process has commenced and is being administered through Austender. Depending on the outcome, Tourism Australia will then decide whether to proceed to full tender or not.

ATE will be hosted in Cairns for the first time in 2014.

Organised by Tourism Australia, the annual event brings together 600 overseas travel buyers from over 40 countries to meet with around 1700 Australian delegates from 630 companies from every Australian state and territory.
