Upcoming industry events
Australia Marketplace events are Tourism Australia's offshore missions.
Australia Marketplace events take place in key markets and combine workshops and networking opportunities with the local travel industry in each location.
G’day Australia is an Australia-based trade event that combines a training workshop and familiarisation visits exclusively for qualified Aussie Specialist agents from across the globe. Qualified Aussie Specialists actively sell Australia as a preferred destination to travelers and may be frontline retail agents or from wholesale and online travel agents.
The event provides a professional forum for Australian sellers to train Aussie Specialists and strengthen their specific product knowledge. In addition, through familiarisation visits, agents will have first-hand experience with quality Australian tourism products, enhancing their ability to promote and sell Australia.
The next G’day Australia will be held in Cairns, Queensland, from 9-12 October 2023.
