A new campaign by Business Events Tasmania – Visionary Program will use the very best Tasmanian-based industry experts and leaders to help secure new events in the business and convention space.

Attracting new events to our State will not only bring thousands of delegates and their families to Tasmania – adding to our local economy – but will also expose our local expertise and knowledge in a wide range of sectors and industries to interstate and international audiences.

Business events inject $17.2 billion into the Australian economy each year and while Tasmania is already hosting 56 conferences next year – including eight international conferences – there are many more opportunities that we can pursue.

We might be a small island, but we always punch above our weight on the big stage and this campaign will allow greater opportunities for our scientists, researchers, industry experts and entrepreneurs to work with Business Events Tasmania to secure major conferences and events for the good of the industries they represent, and the broader Tasmanian economy.
