Representatives from seven UK agencies - AYMTM, First Event, BI Worldwide, Banks Sadler, Creative Travel & Event Management, Definitive Events and MD Events - were among the 80 international buyers from 15 countries attending Dreamtime 2009.

As part of the programme, each market visited a different region prior to the main event in Sydney, and the UK group spent two days in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
 
They took part in activities including learning traditional dance from aboriginals and visiting contemporary venues in Brisbane, a visit to Australia Zoo and a surfing lesson on Noosa beach on the Sunshine coast.

In Sydney, the 80 buyers met with 12 regional convention bureaus and 50 suppliers at Luna Park, where over 2,500 appointments took place over two days.
