Hobart wins major polar meetings

Hobart has won the right to host two major Antarctic conferences in 2020: the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research Delegates’ Meeting and Open Science Conference plus the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs annual general meeting. Business Events Tasmania’s Stuart Nettlefold said: “The meetings alone will generate more than $6.4 million for the Tasmanian economy … running over two weeks and bringing more than 850 delegates from over 40 countries to the State. But the positive impacts go way beyond the immediate economic benefits. They provide Tasmania with a wonderful opportunity to showcase what the State has to offer on the international stage.” Hobart has also secured an imposing list of major business conferences this year and Launceston has also been gaining momentum as an event city, Mr Nettlefold said.
