The Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB) encourages conference organizers and event managers who are seeking information in relation to the impact of the bushfires on business events destinations to contact the local convention bureau authority.
AACB CEO, Andrew Hiebl said, “There is a lot of misinformation spreading globally about the Australian bushfires via mainstream and social media channels that needs to be addressed. Australia’s convention bureaux are best placed to provide up-to-date business events information given they are on the ground in each state and territory with direct connection to industry operators in their respective regions.”
The AACB also endorses Tourism Australia’s ‘Bushfire Information‘ page as an accurate online resource for the business events industry, delegates, media and commentators. This new tool is interactive, updated daily, connects you to relevant emergency sites and includes a live map of Australia clearly depicting the many Australian tourism destinations open for business.
