ATEC goes deep diving in Brisbane
ATEC Meeting Place provided a deep dive into the new Tourism Australia “Come live our Philausophy” campaign, followed by plenary sessions from a range of panelists who looked at frontline industry experiences and learnings.
Evenings were filled with conversations and networking from the Young ATEC’s poolside get together at the Next Hotel to the CEO forum at Customs House.
Comedian Vince Sorrenti helped to wrap up a great few days and joined the crowd as MC at the Time Travellers Ball Gala Dinner held at the new Howard Smith Wharves, which kicked off with a spectacular fireworks display.
