The 2019 Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) has been another stand-out showcase for Tourism Australia, with the nation’s largest annual travel and tourism business-to-business event once more a major success for the country.

Held in Perth this week (Apr 8-11), ATE saw around 1,500 Australian seller delegates from approximately 550 companies, 650 key buyer delegates from over 30 countries, and 70 international and Australian media decend on the Western Australian capital for the event which contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to the nation’s economy through travel bookings each year.

The annual event, now in its 40th year, brings together Australian tourism businesses, and tourism wholesalers and retailers from around the world for both scheduled meetings and a range of networking events.

To find out more about ATE 2019 and what’s in store for tourism for the country, HM and sister publication Wayfarer exclusively spoke to Tourism Australia’s General Manager of International, Phillipa Harrison.
