**EVENT UPDATE 11AM**
As you know, Victoria is currently in the grips of a very fluid situation in attempting to control the spikes in infections occurring across 10 hot spot LGAs in the north, northwest and southeast of Melbourne.
As an extension of this, I’ve unfortunately received a call this morning from Minister Pakula to advise that he will be unable to join us today. There are some further steps we’re expecting to hear about and, as such, the Minister is suggesting that it would be more beneficial to postpone his participation in our event until another agreed time when he will be able to share more insights about what the road ahead for our sector will look like.
Brendan McClements will step in today to cover off his planned presentation on the evolving domestic activity for Victoria which will commence at 1.00pm as planned.
I do sincerely apologise for this inconvenience but it’s sadly a by-product of the difficult situation we find ourselves in at the moment.
Join us as we welcome the Hon. Martin Pakula MP; Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events and Minister for the Coordination of Jobs, Precincts and Regions: COVID-19 to the VTIC Insight Series.
Minister Pakula will share what the State Government has done to support the sector through the current crisis, and measures being focused on right now to ensure the revival and ultimate thriving of our industry.
We also look forward to having Brendan McClements, CEO of Visit Victoria, join us once again to provide an update on the developing domestic campaign for Victoria.
(Tuesday) 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
