Showcasing Adelaide to the world’s airlines

World Routes – the world’s largest aviation business development forum – has been successfully staged in Adelaide during September.
The giant event, which was spread over three pavilions in the Adelaide Showgrounds, has been likened to speed-dating for airports and airlines looking to negotiate future air route development around the globe. It provided an incredible opportunity to showcase Adelaide and South Australia to the more than 2,000 delegates in attendance.
Adelaide Airport was a proud funding partner of World Routes alongside the South Australian Tourism Commission and Tourism Australia. The airport continues to seek opportunities to attract direct services to new destinations including the US, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and India.

Hughes has been part of the comms team from Adelaide Airport, SA Tourism Commission and Tourism SA promoting World Routes to Australian and international media.

Hughes publishes new perceptions research: South Australia in the World.

We are proud to have published our first global perceptions research paper looking into how South Australia and our capital city, Adelaide, are positioned on the world stage. The research was formally launched this month at a high-level lunch with Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Ridgway. 
The research paper itself is the result of interviews with over 30 international business leaders, investors, and senior journalists. Participants were asked about their opinions and knowledge of the South Australian economy generally and key strategic industries associated with the state. The findings in the paper shed light on how South Australia can begin to close the global perception gap and strengthen its position as an attractive and obvious location for global capital, business, and talent.

Businesses must upskill workers or be left behind: Trends

South Australian businesses must increase the level of technology-based skills training they provide employees or risk being left behind in the economy of the future, according to BankSA’s latest Trends economic bulletin.

The report states there are enormous opportunities for SA if it embraces new technologies in growth industries where the state has competitive advantages – such as defence, health, professional services and creative industries – but to fully reap the economic benefits, the state must better prepare the current and future workforce.

Hughes worked with BankSA to help design and produce Trends, and to provide event photography and publicity support: Read.
