Backpacker Week 2017 is Good to go

Preparations for this years Backpacker & Youth Travel Week are well underway.

The event is set to be staged on the Gold Coast for the second time from 6th -10th November, and will incorporate the three key trade events of ABiC (Adventure Travel & Backpacker Industry Conference), ITE (Independent Travel Exchange), networking event and of course the gala dinner of the GBA’s (Golden Backpack Awards).  In addition to these events there will also be some social networking events on the Tuesday & Wednesday evenings.

There will also be a “Hosted Buyer” scheme for all those agents who wish to attend, which will give a discounted rate and access to the Famil, which is being hosted by Gold Coast Tourism but will hopefully include itineraries for Byron Bay and Noosa as well. Anyone wishing to be considered for a Hosted Buyer space should email

The week will also be looking at adding further events to the schedule and more will be confirmed in due course.
