Australia's international business events sector

The latest data from the International Visitor Survey published by Tourism Research Australia shows that spend by business events delegates totalled $13 billion for the year ending September 2014, with total spend by international business events delegates accounting for $2.5 billion (an increase of 4% compared with the previous year). Since the launch of the business events 2020 strategy in 2010, total delegate spend has increased 44% from $9 billion to $13 billion annually, putting the sector well on track to achieving its target of $16 billion annually by the end of the decade. Business events visitors are high yielding, with overnight visitors spending an average of $255 per night, compared to $161 night spend by all overnight visitors in Australia. Business events is an increasingly competitive sector of the travel industry due to the high per delegate spend and new destinations eager to capture a share of this lucrative sector, offering new choices for customers. The recent business events results for Australia reflect the current competitive nature of the sector globally.

Australia most desired destination for North Americans in 2015 | Digital Presentations | Scoop.it

Australia has overtaken Italy as North America’s most desired destination for 2015. According to Fly.com’s New Year Travel Resolutions Survey, islands in the South Pacific dominate the preferences of North Americans, with New Zealand and Fiji ranking third and fourth respectively. On a regional basis, Canadian travellers are divided between European and island destinations, while U.S. Midwest residents are partial to warmer weather destinations closer to home. The Southern and North-eastern regions were the only regions to select an Asian country in their top 10 list. Meanwhile, the western states favour European destinations such as Croatia and Norway. Favourably, Australia comprises one of the top five most desired destinations for all regions.

Keeping up with demand in the Asia Pacific

Keeping up with demand in the Asia Pacific | Digital Presentations | Scoop.it

The latest edition of PATA's Connected Visitor Economy Bulletin examines airport infrastructure and keeping up with demand in the Asia Pacific region, providing three scenarios based on changes in Asian airline capacity per capita. The report confirms that the focus of growth in the aviation industry is shifting east, with IATA expecting China to overtake the US as the world's largest passenger market by 2030, with passenger volumes expected to reach 1.3 billion. Some of the largest airports in the US handle more than three times the average hourly departures than the top 25 Asian airports. Given that these Asian airports will need to handle much of the future demand, it is inevitable that runway utilisation will need to increase. The importance of China as a market is demonstrated by the fact that twelve of Asia's top 25 airports are located in China. Click here to download the report.
