It may have been a few tough years for inbound tour and events operator ID Events Australia, but there’s now optimism in spades for the future.

That’s the view of its founder and major shareholder, chair Bill Wright.

The company marked the start of its 50th year with a gathering of its staff who collectively have 175 years of experience with the business.

Wright told micenet he never doubted the industry would rebound after the closure of international borders which prevented his team from delivering events.

“This wasn’t going to pull the rug from under us,” he said.

He said the company got through the first two years of the pandemic because of its financial resources and the team who remained committed and strong.

That team gathered to celebrate its 49th anniversary at a Sydney restaurant. It was a day of celebration and coming together face to face.

Some of ID Events Australia’s staff have been with the company for decades, including one who has been with ID Events Australia since the very beginning.

ID Events Australia specialises in inbound incentive events, with a traditional strong hold in the USA and Europe.
