The spring edition of VTIC’s official quarterly magazine, Tourism Excellence is out now.
In this edition, we highlight how tourism and events can lead the way in jobs creation and economic growth in Victoria. Parks Victoria outlines how strengthening and increasing awareness of the State’s parks provides significant benefits to wellbeing and the visitor economy and the Spring Racing Carnival’s international appeal and economic benefits are highlighted.
Organisers of regional festivals tell us what makes such festivals successful, and the National Gallery of Victoria shares insights into its recent and upcoming exhibitions. Wrap-ups of VTIC events, the Victorian Tourism Conference, Victorian VIC Summit and MPs4Tourism show how we continue to provide the industry with key development and networking opportunities.
The AFL describes the success of the inaugural AFL Women’s season and the rise of female participation, and with the increase in online scams, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission share traps and tips for tourism operators to be aware of. Ashlee Kay, winner of the 2016 Lynette Bergin Tourism Award, provides insights into tourism and the sharing economy, and the revised Victorian Accredited Visitor Information Servicing Guidelines demonstrate how the industry is adapting to changing visitor needs.
We hope you enjoy reading our magazine and are inspired to engage with VTIC on a particular issue, or to get out and experience some of Victoria’s great tourism and event offerings.
