Major tourism conference coup for SA

Tourism Expo

The valuable event will see around 2,500 influential tourism sector delegates descend on the Adelaide Convention Centre from 15 – 19 April, injecting $10 million into South Australia’s economy while they are here, and learning more about the incredible experiences our state has to offer.

The nation’s largest tourism conference will showcase the very best of South Australia’s tourism offerings, food, wine and beverages to travel and tourism wholesalers, retailers and other key tourism stakeholders from more than 30 countries around the world, giving local businesses the opportunity to highlight their products to a global audience.

Securing this coveted conference underlines efforts the State Government has made in the tourism sector, which is a key economic priority for South Australia.

More than 35,000 people are employed in the $6 billion industry in South Australia, and the government is investing an additional $70 million over four years to further expand the sector.
