Backpacker Week is a must attend event for anyone working in the Adventure Travel and Backpacking sector in Australia.
The Adventure Travel and Backpacker Industry Conference (ABiC), now in its 21st year in 2016, is the original and still one of the biggest events in Australia for anyone connected to the youth, adventure and backpacker sector. It maintains its place as part of the 'Backpacker Week' of events which will also include the Independent Travel Exchange (ITE) and Golden Backpack Awards - the original awards evening for the Backpacker and adventure travel sector.
This years event will take place on Wednesday 9th November at the Watermark Hotel, Gold Coast QLD. The aim of the program is to provide delegates with practical learning they can apply in their own businesses to boost the bottom line. As well as formal learning during the conference, there are networking opportunities at the pre-conference breakfast, during the tea/coffee and lunch breaks.
The Independent Travel Exchange (ITE) is the backpacking and adventure travel industry's very own business-to-business appointment-based networking day. Taking place for the first time in 2009, it was a huge success with over 100 companies in attendance each year. It is back, bigger and better this year and promising to help businesses accomplish high levels of work and networking over the course of the 2 x 4 hour sessions on offer.
ITE is designed to provide a forum for Australasian tourism businesses to meet other local operators in order to canvas new business opportunities and develop networking contacts. Unlike other events, where businesses need to have international-ready product, ITE also welcomes developing businesses to introduce their product to the major suppliers, retailers and representatives central to the thriving backpacker and adventure travel market.
