2006 EVENT REVIEW - One hundred delegates from across Australia attended the ATA Business Development Symposium held in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland. The Symposium was conducted over 4 days and included topics to enhance business operations of Indigenous tourism businesses. Topics were presented by guest speakers with expertise in the areas they were presenting in. Delegates had the opportunity to select workshops from three streams where topics ranged from protecting Indigenous authenticity and cultural property, business management, Guiding and minimal impacts. One-on-one consultations were available for delegates seeking more detailed information from presenters. As well as the industry development benefits, one of the key outcomes was the networking which took place with operators from across the country, with all operators having the opportunity to share their story to the forum. Participants were awarded a Certificate 1 in Tourism. The next ATA Business Development Symposium will be held in Sydney Australia and will culminate in the 2007 Corroboree Indigenous tourism Expo at the Sydney Opera House.
