Dreamtime is Australia's largest business events showcase, which allows Aussies to connect with qualified buyers from key markets including Greater China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, New Zealand, USA and the United Kingdom. As Tourism Australia kicked off AIME, a new announcement came that Dreamtime 2015 will be held in the city of Adelaide in South Australia.
Dreamtime 2015 is set to further strengthen the $13 billion business events sector and will give Adelaide the opportunity to showcase its unprecedented level of investment in new and existing infrastructure to buyers from around the world.
Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan said as well as being key to promoting Australia as a business events destination internationally, Dreamtime was vital to the broader industry Tourism 2020 targets.
"Dreamtime is integral to our broader Tourism 2020 industry targets to grow the business events sector to $16 billion annually by the end of the decade," Mr O'Sullivan said.
Hon Leon Bignell MP, South Australia's Minister for Tourism said, "Adelaide is a vibrant city. With exciting redevelopments of the Riverbank Events and Entertainment Precinct, including major expansions to the world class Adelaide Convention Centre and iconic Adelaide Oval, we now have a hub for major business events that is second to none.
"Adelaide has been named as one of Lonely Planet's top ten cities to visit in 2014 and recently the New York Times singled out Adelaide as the city in Australia to visit this year. We are a hot destination and our big increases in visitor numbers is reflecting that.
