Adventure and Backpacker Industry Conference http://www.backpackersexpo.com/new/html/conference.html

When it's on: Wednesday 7 November 2007

Where it is: Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney

Organisers are looking for suggestions on further topics and speakers.

I know there are backpackers with disabilities out there who will have some suggestions!

The Adventure and Backpacker Industry Conference (ABiC) this year celebrates its 12th year. Tiger Airways CEO Tony Davis has been confirmed as this year's keynote speaker. Tiger is about to launch domestic flights in Australia and Davis will discuss the impact of the low-cost carrier's impact on the backpacking sector.

The conference dinner at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf Sydney will host
the Golden Backpacker Awards - the only tourism gongs dedicated to the
independent travel sector. There will be a national campaign to gather
votes from consumers in more than 40 categories.
