The Travel Industry Exhibition opens its doors to the Crystal Palace at Luna Park Sydney in two weeks time where Australia’s only exhibition for the travel industry will showcase the latest products and services from both new and existing travel suppliers in the international and domestic markets.
In its second year, the exhibition aims to bridge the gap between travel suppliers and buyers, connecting industry stakeholders in one location and providing a key forum for education and networking.
With over 90 travel brands exhibiting and a much greater registered visitor base compared with the same time last year, the 2015 exhibition is set to be bigger and better than in 2014.
A great diversity in exhibitors has drawn a large number of quality buyers who will have the opportunity to experience new products and services for the first time, as well as learn from and engage with leading industry speakers and like-minded professionals.
A series of educational seminars led by various industry leading experts is set to please.
Visitors can expect to see well-known figures from TripAdvisor, Facebook and DFAT along with a number of other leading experts including Simon Hillier, owner of Get There Writing Services who will lead the session ‘(Get Googled!) Smart SEO for travel businesses.’
