Asia's leading aviation route development forum, the official name of which is Routes Asia, will be held in Brisbane in March 2018 and will bring together over 1,000 airline, airport and tourism delegates.
Not only this, but the representatives from each of these businesses will span over 100 countries, according to the Tourism Australia website.
Some of the companies that will be in attendance are to include Brisbane Airport Corporation, Brisbane Marketing, Tourism and Events Queensland and Trade and Investment Queensland. These and other advocates from Australia have joined forces with Tourism Australia to bring this conference to Queensland.
Speaking on the event, Julieanne Alroe, Brisbane Airport Corporation chief executive officer (CEO), said that she felt it was an honour for Brisbane to be chosen as host for this forum.
Not just a normal event, this is the largest and most important route development get-together for aviation-based companies that work with businesses in and around Asia.
Ms Alroe commented: "Dozens of influential cities from across Asia bid for the chance to host delegates for the Routes Asia conference and it is a reflection of Brisbane and Queensland's growing importance and profile that it has been chosen for this event."
John O'Sullivan, managing director of Tourism Australia, agreed with Ms Alroe that this forum is a "great honour for 'Team Australia'" and is a way for it to show why Australia is "such a great investment proposition for future aviation development".
CEO for Tourism and Events Queensland Leanne Coddington was also keen to highlight why this area of the country is perfect for significant business events.
Ms Coddington feels that the flurry of delegates that will be coming to the forum will create an opportunity to showcase all the experiences that people can enjoy in Queensland.
Several other ministers and delegates for tourism in Australia also commented on how this event is sure to be a success and expressed their hopes that it would prove beneficial to the future economy of this particular industry in the country.
