The 2023 ATEC Meeting Place location has been revealed!

The location of this year’s inbound tourism industry’s flagship event, the Australian Tourism Export Council’s (ATEC) Meeting Place, has been unveiled and is set to attract up to 500 tourism industry leaders this October.

Hosting the event this year is Adelaide, which will be a great opportunity for the state and city to reinforce its tourism offering as international visitors start to re-engage with destination Australia, according to ATEC managing director Peter Shelley.

“Meeting Place is an exceptional platform for showcasing South Australia, bringing together the people who sell Australia to the world and delivering them right to your front door,” Shelley said.

“With a concentrated number of international travel buyers gathered in one place, Meeting Place, with it’s 50 year history, is the most accessible interface for Australian export tourism businesses to put their products in front of the right people.

Minister for Tourism Zoe Bettison said it was terrific that Adelaide has secured ATEC’s flagship event.

“Hosting ATEC Meeting Place provides an opportunity to showcase South Australia directly to those who will help sell it internationally, playing an important role in the recovery of our state’s International Visitor Expenditure to $1.2 billion by December 2025 – and helping drive it more boldly towards our 2030 target of $3.3 billion,” Bettison said.

With event partner South Australian Tourism Commission and supported by Adelaide Airport and the Adelaide Economic Development Agency (a subsidiary of the City of Adelaide), Meeting Place offers three days of B2B events that include Young Industry Leaders presentations, thought leading conference program, industry meetings, valuable networking functions as well as a gala finale event featuring the graduation of ATEC’s ELITE Young Leaders program, plus ATEC’s Annual Excellence Awards.
