Tourism Australia partnered with the South Australian Tourism Commission and Adelaide Airport to host the World Routes 2019 aviation conference, which took place in Australia for the first time in the event’s 25-year history. The four-day conference brought together 2,000 delegates from 200 airlines and 350 airports from around the world. Australia was represented by its largest-ever World Routes delegation consisting of federal, state and territory, and regional tourism organisations as well as airports under the ‘Team Australia’ umbrella. The event also featured a keynote address from Australia's tourism minister, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, a conference program, and over 10,000 face-to-face meetings. Participant satisfaction with the event was high, with 86 per cent of delegates ‘very or extremely satisfied’ and 100 per cent reporting that their business objectives were met.
