$1 BILLION BENEFIT POLICY GAINING TRACTION

The Bureau is delighted to report that its $1 Billion Benefit policy launched at the 2017 AGM is gaining traction with key stakeholders in the lead up to the March state election.

The Bureau’s aim of securing unilateral support across government, tourism industry and the broader South Australian business community is gaining momentum with the SA Liberal Party this week announcing it was behind the policy.

The Bureau policy was developed to maximise the benefits and opportunities arising from the major funding of our business events infrastructure including the $400 million redevelopment of the Adelaide Convention Centre, greater international accessibility of the state and the growing the incentive travel group market.

With increased support, South Australia has a golden opportunity to capitalise on this infrastructure to compete as a world-class international conference destination against cities like Singapore, Shanghai, Vancouver, Vienna and London.

The Bureau has already attracted $725 million of economic benefit for the State over the past four years (2013 -17) through conferences and business events, with its own modelling showing this can be increased to reach $1 billion over four years (2018-2022) through targeted new initiatives.

South Australia is enjoying current high levels of interest in the State from professional business event and incentive organisers, but with lead times of up to four years – we know the time to act is now.
