VTIC welcomes election of Melbourne Lord Mayor, Sally Capp

19 /05/ 2018 Comments are Closed

The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) is looking forward to working with the City of Melbourne’s new Lord Mayor Sally Capp to enhance Melbourne’s position as Australia’s number one holiday destination for domestic and international visitors.

VTIC Acting Chief Executive Chris Porter has congratulated Ms Capp on her election and said there are many opportunities for the Council and VTIC to work together and continue to grow the City of Melbourne’s visitor economy.

“Each year tens of millions of visitors come to Melbourne, drawn to the mix of experiences on offer to tourists,” Mr Porter said.

“Melbourne is the undisputed culinary, cultural, sporting and events capital of Australia. Each year the tourism industry contributes more than $15 billion into Melbourne’s economy.

“Ms Capp’s business background will help to ensure tourism remains a focus for the Council.

“We will continue to support the City of Melbourne so that our state capital remains a vibrant, attractive and modern city that is the envy of others around the world,” Mr Porter said.

VTIC works closely with the City of Melbourne, as a Corporate Partner, to ensure that visitors to Melbourne have the best experience possible.
