AACB disappoint­ed


THE Associatio­n of Australian Convention Bureaux has criticised the Productivi­ty Commission for its lack of focus on the business events sector in a draft report.

The ‘Barriers to Growth in Service Exports’ report identified tourism as Australia’s leading service export sector.

AACB executive director Andrew Hiebl said the report’s focus solely on overnight expenditur­e fails to recognise the broader importance of the visitor economy, while business events offer strategic tools for attracting trade & talent.
