Conference and meetings arrivals show strong growth in Australia

Tourism Australia has published its conference and convention visitor arrivals figures for July 2010, which are available now from www.businessevents.australia.com. 

The report shows that business and conference arrivals continued the growth trends of the first half of 2010. 

Results were very strong for the three months ending July 2010, showing business continues to build from several of Australia’s most important markets, including India (convention and conference arrivals increased by 101%), Korea (up 97%), China (up 72%) and Japan (up 61%). There is also an encouraging positive growth out of the North American markets, with the United States showing growth of 77% and Canada rising 16%.

Overall, in the year ended 30 July 2010, there were 795,570 business arrivals to Australia, including 167,352 convention or conference arrivals. This represents an eight per cent increase in business arrivals and a 15 per cent increase in convention/conference arrivals on the previous year, and a strong result for the business events sector.
