The Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) welcomes the State Government’s announced funding for Tourism Greater Geelong and The Bellarine and its establishment as an official Regional Tourism Board (RTB).

“VTIC has consistently called on the government to recognise and provide funding for this vital organisation and we applaud this announcement,” said VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

“This is recognition of the organisation’s significance and the resultant funding will allow it to expand its efforts to grow tourism in the area.

“Greater Geelong and the Bellarine is one of the jewels in Victorian tourism’s crown and we will continue to support this organisation and local operators to grow our industry in the region.”

The announcement was made today by the Hon. John Eren MP, Minister for Tourism and Major Events, at the Victorian Tourism Conference 2015, attended by over 400 tourism leaders and proudly presented by VTIC in partnership with Tourism Victoria.
