The 2020 Visitor Economy Forum will be the first opportunity for our industry to come together since the bushfire disaster. VTIC has been working closely with Tourism Australia and Visit Victoria to develop a tailored program to share key recovery priorities and activities they are undertaking collectively to support the industry.
Recognising the significant impacts felt by operators across the state over this period, and with the generous support from our friends at Crown Melbourne, this year we are offering registration to the Visitor Economy Forum FREE OF CHARGE. Crown Melbourne have played a significant role through the bushfire recovery and this continued support shows their commitment to regional communities affected by the fires and the industry as a whole.
Our MC Gorgi Coghlan will lead us through a full program of targeted workshops and keynote speakers including:
The Hon. Martin Pakula MP, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events
Phillipa Harrison, Managing Director, Tourism Australia
Brendan McClements, CEO, Visit Victoria
Erin Boutros and Eleanor Baillieu, Co-Founders, Empty Esky
Crisis management; insights and impacts with Terry Robinson, CEO at Destination Gippsland, Sarah Pilgrim, Acting CEO at Tourism North East, Lisa Patroni, Executive Director Marketing, Communications and Partnerships at Parks Victoria and Erin Boutros, Co-Founder of Empty Esky.
Workshops will include:
Influencing consumer connections through PR & social media
Communicating in a crisis and managing your obligations
International Market Update: The next wave – South and South East Asia
International Market Update: The growth of the Americas
Leverage Visit Victoria’s winter campaign to benefit your business
At a crucial time for the industry, the Visitor Economy Forum is an event not to be missed.
