The Dreamtime program allows the Australian industry to meet and build business relations with buyers from key outside markets including; Greater China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, New Zealand, USA and the United Kingdom.

The event will provide the perfect gateway for Australia’s key international buyers to experience a fantastic array of experiences and destinations on offer in Australia.

The Dreamtime program also includes a destination showcase (held after the Brisbane event), dedicated media event and networking opportunities to allow the maximum engagement between the Australian industry and international business events buyers.

Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan said Dreamtime has a strong track record in driving real business outcomes for the Australian business events industry.

“Dreamtime is Australia’s largest business events showcase, and taking the event to Brisbane is an exciting development for a city that is continuing to raise its profile internationally as an ideal incentive destination.

“Dreamtime is unquestionably the perfect platform to showcase our country’s outstanding products and experiences whilst also demonstrating our industry’s event delivery capabilities to buyers and media from around the world,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

Brisbane Marketing’s Convention Bureau General Manager Rob Nelson said the Bureau was proud to work with Tourism Australia to bring Dreamtime to the city.

“Having been successful for a number of years in the highly competitive association conference sector, we want to increase awareness of Brisbane’s remarkable incentive products and experiences. I think the buyers and media attending Dreamtime will be pleasantly surprised and inspired by what Brisbane and our surrounding region have to offer,” Mr Nelson said.

The event should bring a significant boost to the tourism industry and is integral to achieving a broader Tourism 2020 industry target – to grow the business events sector to $16 billion annually by the end of the decade.
