Tweed has been announced as the host for the 2018 Australian Regional Tourism (ART) Convention to be held from Tuesday 23 – Thursday 25 October.Australian Regional Tourism is the peak body for regional tourism in Australia. The Convention is a forum in which regional tourism practitioners can exchange ideas, discuss and debate some of the most important issues, challenges and opportunities facing regional tourism.

ART Chair, Simon McArthur said, “We’re excited that the ART Convention will be held in the Tweed for the very first time. The Tweed region offers fantastic flight accessibility through the Gold Coast Airport and a diverse collection of tourism experiences to showcase and discuss. We think Tweed will attract one of the highest number of delegates in years.”

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said the four-day convention will provide the perfect opportunity to showcase the Tweed’s business event capabilities to high-profile delegates.

“With our state-of-the art business facilities, fresh local produce, beautiful beaches and World Heritage rainforest, we are delighted that the spotlight will be on Tweed this October as key decision makers from around Australia gather for the ART Convention,” Mr Provest said.

ART launches its 2018 Convention in partnership with the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW. Key themes will include improving regional dispersal, agritourism, nature-based tourism and visitor servicing.

An innovation to this year’s program will be a suite of interactive workshops on hot topics. Delegates will have the chance to enter a competition and receive recommendations from experienced facilitators on the various tourism issues relevant to their region.

The Convention theme is ‘Pushing the Boundaries’. Delegates to ART Conventions come from local government, regional and state tourism organisations and a raft of private sector businesses that service their needs.

You can register interest through the ART website and early bird registrations will open in early April.
