In 2017, 365,000 hotel overnight stays were registered from the entire region, which represents excellent growth of 13% compared with the previous year. By 2020, ST expects this figure to increase further by up to 19%.

ST’s activities in Australia/New Zealand are primarily targeted at travellers aged over 50, who often spend several weeks in Europe, spending an average of CHF 260 per day in Switzerland. A meeting tourism expert for Australia
