AACB congratulates new Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment

December 22, 2020 MICE No Comments

The Association of Australian Convention Bureaux (AACB) congratulates the Hon Dan Tehan MP on his appointment as Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment.

AACB CEO, Andrew Hiebl said, “Minister Tehan has been a supporter of the high yield business events industry since his role as Chair of the Coalition Friends of Tourism earlier this decade. More recently, the Minister has shown his understanding of the industry’s needs as the Trade, Tourism and Investment representative in the House of Representatives.”

ACB President, Michael Matthews said, “We thank the outgoing Trade Minister, Simon Birmingham, for his support of the business events industry over the past two years and congratulate him in his new portfolio as Minister for Finance.”

Under Minister Birmingham’s leadership, he acknowledged the trade and investment opportunities derived from international business events in addition to the tourism benefits. Minister Birmingham also maintained and enhanced the Business Events Bid Fund and was key to securing $50 million to help restart business events in response to COVID-19. Our ongoing relationship with Minister Birmingham will continue to be critical to the future of the business events industry and Australia’s economic recovery post pandemic.

Minister Tehan has shown unwavering support to grow, promote and strengthen Australia’s tourism industry and the Government must be congratulated for maintaining business events within the Trade and Investment portfolio. With business events valued at more than $35 billion to Australia and underpinning more than 229,000 jobs, the industry will help drive international capital to grow our economy.

Moving forward, AACB will work closely with Minister Tehan as an advocate within Cabinet, to build on the role business events can play in growing key industries through sharing global expertise, nurturing collaboration, and fostering innovation.
