27-May-2010 | The 33rd Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) Symposium was held in Hobart in April.
ATEC is Australia’s peak industry body representing the country’s $26 billion export tourism sector, so winning the ATEC Symposium was a coup for Tasmania. With 600 delegates from around the country descending on the city - this was our chance to shine. And shine Hobart did.
The delegate exit survey returned a 97% satisfaction rate with the Tasmanian experience. This result is right up there and comparable with the best results the conference has secured in its long history. The survey looks at all aspects of the 4 - day event including the conference program, speakers, social events, business to business workshops and the performance of the host destination.
ATEC were extremely pleased with the feedback received during the event and of course the delegate surveys back this up. The Tasmanian industry came together to showcase the destination in the best light to the cream of the inbound tourism industry from across Australia. Delegates also took advantage of the pre and post touring options to explore the quality tourism experiences on offer in the State.
