We are ATEC members because… it’s a great platform to connect buyers and sellers alike, create business opportunities and drive tourism to Australia.  From a supplier perspective, the tradeshows allow us to share updates with key buyers both existing and new, leverage off ATECs network and we prefer to contract with ATEC buyer members only – it’s our way of determining who’s serious about business in this industry. Apart from the business aspects, ATEC has also cultivated a great community and foster networking opportunities at tradeshows, industry events and through YATEC.
