G’Day Australian Tourism Operators

Destination NSW, the South Australian Tourism Commission, Tourism and Events Queensland, Tourism Northern Territory, Tourism Tasmania, Tourism Victoria and Tourism Western Australia, in conjunction with major event sponsor Tourism Australia, are pleased to invite you to the 2016 North American Australia Marketplace in Los Angeles, California.

Australia Marketplace will bring together buyers from 70+ North American travel companies with 70 Australian tourism products for two full days of face-to-face meetings and networking opportunities. As added value, the program has been extended this year to include a retail travel agent event.
In 2016, the Australia Tourism Summit will be held just prior to, and in the same location as, Australia Marketplace. Now in its fourth year, the Summit provides another 'don’t-miss' opportunity to join fellow industry leaders and experts for a day of informative and inspiring presentations and discussions about the trends that are shaping our business environment and to gain insights on how to grow North American tourism to Australia. Speakers will include thought leaders who will discuss tourism, luxury, economic and media trends. The Summit will open with a welcome reception and dinner on the evening of Monday February 22nd, with a full schedule of presentations and panel discussions on Tuesday, followed by a closing networking dinner Tuesday evening. You will have an opportunity to register for the Australia Tourism Summit on your confirmation page once you complete your Marketplace registration.
