We sincerely thank you for your ongoing support of the Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC), the peak policy and advocacy body for Victoria’s tourism and events industry.
VTIC works tirelessly as a respected advocate, supporter of industry, powerful ally, and partner to your business. The recent launch of our advocacy campaign Tourism is Victoria’s Business highlights the industry’s funding and policy priorities ahead of the State Election in November.
VTIC is a membership based organisation that offers you many benefits, and our partnership with the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) affords all members access to a range of further benefits that enable solutions to your everyday business challenges.
We wish to advise that, effective 1 July 2018, we will be increasing member benefits, resulting in a small increase in our membership fees; our first increase for some two years. Changes to the memberships are outlined below and will be reflected in all membership renewal invoices due from 1 July 2018. (Note, the In the Loop membership category remains as is).
|Category||New Price (ex. GST)||(new) Additional benefits|
|Essentials||700||Events – $200 credit towards VTIC events OR 4 tickets to VCCI FF/BAD*; AND $200 VCCI training/consulting credit|
|Complete||1,200||Events – $300 credit towards VTIC events OR 6 tickets to VCCI FF/BAD*; AND $400 VCCI training/consulting credit|

|Connect||8,200||Events – $500 credit towards VTIC events AND $700 VCCI training/consulting credit. Connect members currently (and will continue to) receive two tickets to each VCCI FF/BAD*|
* VCCI FF/BAD = VCCI fast Forward/Business After Dark events
We are excited to deliver additional benefit to your business and trust that you will see value in taking advantage of them. All VTIC members, regardless of their membership renewal date, will have access to the listed benefits during their current membership year (i.e. if your renewal date was 1 March 2018, you have access to the full additional benefits for the year to 28 February 2019).
Further details on the additional benefits are as follows:
Please note: The allocation of your Event/Ticket credits can only be applied to one or the other of VTIC or VCCI events. The credit cannot be split across the two segments.
