Message from the Acting Chief Executive, Chris Porter

20 /12/ 2017 Comments are Closed

‘Tis the season to be jolly and the industry certainly did kick up its heels at the Victorian Tourism Industry Christmas Party at Metropolis Events last Monday evening. It was a great opportunity to reflect on 2017, catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances. Thank you to both Destination Melbourne and the Melbourne Convention Bureau for their continued partnership on this event – collaboration at its best.

Sadly, at the end of November we had to say a fond farewell to Brad Ostermeyer. We would like to thank Brad for his leadership of the VTIC team and passion for the wider tourism and events industry during his time at the helm of VTIC.

But as one door closes another opens, and we are excited with the appointment of Felicia Mariani to the position of VTIC Chief Executive. Felicia will be taking up the reins of the VTIC sleigh (sorry!) from Monday 8 January. The VTIC team are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Felicia and we look forward to delivering some serious outcomes for industry throughout 2018.

Wishing everyone a safe and prosperous Christmas and New Year. Here’s to a successful 2018 for all.

Merry Christmas.

Chris Porter
