A message from Chief Executive, Brad Ostermeyer

28 /07/ 2017 Comments are Closed

The 2017 Victorian Tourism Conference, held at the spectacular Flemington Racecourse, was an outstanding success and highlighted the wonderful opportunities that are emerging from the ever-constant technological, economic and social changes that are being experienced here in Victoria and around the world.  Our monthly newsletter is largely dedicated to the highlights from the conference.

Nominations have now closed for the 2017 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards.  Nominees have until Monday 4th September 2017 to enter their submissions.  However, anyone requiring support can contact Mike Hamilton or visit the Awards website (include link) to tap into resources like our recent Webinar on how to prepare an award winning submission.

VTIC has met with the Small Business Commission regarding the Victorian Government’s second Small Business Regulation Review (SBRR), which aims to reduce red tape and regulatory burden for tourism and visitor-focused small businesses in Victoria.  We advocated strongly for changes to the business and regulatory environment, which will make it easier for our visitor economy businesses to operate.

There are some exciting events coming up, with the 2017 Victorian Visitor Information Centre Summit scheduled for 23-25 August in San Remo.  The program has been finalised and promises to deliver wonderful learning opportunities for those involved in visitor servicing.

Following the VIC Summit, VTIC will again be hosting the MPs4Tourism breakfast on Wednesday 6 September 2017 at the Sofitel in Melbourne.  This will provide our members with the opportunity to engage directly with the State Government MPs on tourism, events and visitor economy issues.

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming industry event soon.
