Australian Regional Tourism Convention

The ART Convention is a must-attend event for local councils, regional tourism organisations, tourism professionals, business and government personnel who wish to contribute to the future of regional tourism in Australia. This year’s convention theme is ‘Building resilient and adaptive communities that thrive’.
In 2020, ART will bring a new convention to you in a virtual environment. Join us from 27-29 October.

The Convention provides a forum to discuss, debate and investigate solutions to issues, challenges and opportunities facing regional tourism. The Convention is for all sectors of the tourism industry to exchange ideas about ways to grow a sustainable regional destination and to showcase best practice success.
