2018 Corroboree Asia to welcome 300 qualified Aussie specialist agents from Asia
Corroboree Asia will bring together more than 100 Australian tourism operators to meet with around 300 qualified Aussie specialist agents from priority Asian markets, including Greater China, Japan, Korea, India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.
Hosted in partnership with Gold Coast Tourism and Tourism and Events Queensland, the event will take place on August from 26 to 31, followed by five-day familiarisation trips around the country.
The inaugural Corroboree Asia held in 2016 in Perth resulted in a 98 per cent satisfaction rate among agents, with 100 per cent of them saying the event increased their ability to sell Australia.
Strong international visitor numbers and growth in spend reflects a continued demand among travellers for Australian tourism experiences. In the 12 months to September 2017, Australia welcomed 8 million international visitors who spent over $41 billion.
