The Australian Tourism Exchange (ATE) is Australia’s largest annual travel and tourism business-to-business event. ATE brings together Australian tourism businesses in a forum to promote their products directly to tourism wholesalers and retailers from around the world through a combination of scheduled business appointments and networking events. It also provides international travel Buyers with the opportunity to experience Australia’s tourism offering first-hand through pre and post event familiarisations.
