Located in the world’s strongest tourism region and largest aviation market, Queensland offers a secure and stable environment for tourism investors. With an aim to increase annual visitor expenditure to $30 billion by the year 2020, the tourism sector will need to continue to innovate. Government and businesses will need to harness new opportunities and manage new risks requiring imaginative thinking and evidence-based choices. Maximising the benefits of the tourism industry requires a commitment to increase investment in tourism marketing, support business events, and invest in key visitor economy infrastructure. Our panel will discuss the key industry priorities to take Queensland’s visitor economy forward and how businesses can capitalise on the opportunities.
