On February 21, after two years of tightening, Australia will reopen to tourism and for the occasion, Discover Australia, a brand of the Quality Group, along with Tourism Australia and backed by Tourism Western Australia and Qantas Airways will be organizing 12 simultaneous events in several Italian cities To celebrate this long-awaited moment. From Trieste to Palermo, passing through Turin, Milan, Brescia, Genoa, Padua, Bologna, Florence, Civitanova Marche, Rome and Bari. These are the 12 cities where ‘Lights from Australia’ will take place: a true celebratory and informal event that will involve 600 live travel agents, and many online travel agents with direct connections to Australia, to share the joy of the new renaissance of Australian tourism.
Philippa Harrison, Managing Director of Tourism Australia, and Melbourne Cincia Burns, Director of Operations for AOT Group, will take part in the online event on February 21 from Sydney, who will speak live with Adolfo Farisato of Qantas, Eva Seller, Managing Director of Tourism Australia Europe, Craig Smith, Tourism Western Australia, Matteo Prato of Tourism Hub, Roberto Boni and Marco Picci of Discover Australia Quality Group.
It will be an opportunity to talk about the many innovations that can be experienced by returning to Australia, starting with the new direct Qantas air link, and departing from Rome, which will allow you to reach your destination comfortably and in a very short time. The live event format will re-propose the most authentic Australian casual or easy-going spirit: the jeans dress code. Even for those who attend live events, it will be necessary to have a mobile phone with earphones with them to participate in the online event. Beer and burgers as comfort food. Those who will not be able to attend the appointments in person (places available for live events are limited to 600 participants) will be able to connect directly.
“We are very pleased that if a country that has implemented one of the strictest protocols to manage a health emergency, closed its borders completely for two long years, and decides today to reopen its doors to tourism, means that we are at a target juncture. We are therefore pleased to be able to revive Australian tourism We are honored to do so with our partners, tourism authorities, suppliers and travel agents. It is no longer time to dream, it is time to leave again Marco PicciQuality Assurance Group Commercial Director. “Italy and Australia have never been so close as they are today.
