What is ATE?
The Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) is a tourism trade show that brings Australian tourism businesses together with airlines, tourism wholesalers and retailers from around the world.

ATE provides:
A forum for Australian tourism Sellers to showcase their products, meet with overseas contacts and negotiate deals
International travel Buyers with an opportunity to experience Australia first-hand
A unique opportunity for attendees to increase their share of the inbound travel market.
International Buyers are selected by Tourism Australia to ensure the most influential people meet with Australian tourism businesses.

Who attends ATE?  
Around 1,700 Australian Seller delegates from approximately 600 companies
Approximately 700 key Buyer companies from over 40 countries
Approximately 40 international and 25 Australian media, reporting to millions of people worldwide.

Event format
ATE 2013 will be a five day combined program consisting of four days of appointments and one day of registration, providing Australian exhibitors access to all markets attending the event.

Networking functions
During ATE 2013 some exciting official evening functions are planned to showcase the host city, Sydney, at its finest.

It is important to note that in order to protect and respect the investment of our major partners, Sellers wishing to host Buyers for meals, functions or private meetings must do so outside of the official function times.

Happy hour will be maintained to ensure all Buyers and Sellers maximise this networking opportunity. Happy Hour will be held on Saturday 27 and Monday 29 April 2013. Please note that there will be no pre-scheduled appointments during the Happy Hour. There will, however be two free appointment slots available to fill at the commencement of each Happy Hour, but this is at each delegate's own discretion and with the knowledge that there may be some background noise present during Happy Hour.
