Tourism Australia’s signature business showcase event, Dreamtime, will be held in
Brisbane for the first time in 2017. Dreamtime is Australia’s largest trade-marketing
events showcase and attracts tourism buyers from across the world. 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. It will also give
Brisbane, and Queensland, the opportunity to highlight its infrastructure, business event
facilities and experiences to buyers and media on the global stage. Dreamtime 2017 will
allow the Australian tourism industry to connect with buyers from key markets including
China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Zealand, USA and the United Kingdom. The
event should bring a significant boost to the tourism industry and is integral to Tourism
Australia’s broader Tourism 2020 industry targets to grow the business events sector to
$16 billion annually by the end of the decade. Dreamtime 2017 will be held December
3-6 with international buyers and media spending time in Brisbane before continuing
educational visits to other Australian destinations.
