Tourism Talk

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - TOURISM TALK -

With our sta­tis­tics show­ing 49 per cent of book­ings are made through travel agents and on­line travel sites, this con­tin­ues to be an im­por­tant part of our mar­ket­ing strat­egy.

This was backed up with our agent cam­paign which was very suc­cess­ful.

The an­nual “Con­ver­sa­tions with TQ” fo­rum will be held on Septem­ber 1 in Port Dou­glas.

Con­tent on the day will in­clude 2011/12 strate­gic direc­tion pre­sented by CEO An­thony Hayes.

There will also be two key panel dis­cus­sions with a fo­cus on in­ter­na­tional mar­kets, in­cen­tives and ac­cess and global mar­ket­ing, me­dia and the dig­i­tal direc­tion.

This fo­rum is an ideal op­por­tu­nity for the TQ team to hear di­rectly from the Port Dou­glas Dain­tree op­er­a­tors and will be an in­ter­ac­tive and con­ver­sa­tional fo­rum.

This week I am at­tend­ing the Aus­tralian Re­gional Tourism Con­ven­tion in Townsville and look for­ward to dis­cus­sions with Andrew Hayes, CEO of Tourism Queens­land, Daniel Gschwind, CEO of the Queens­land Tourism In­dus­try Coun­cil (QTIC) and Feli­cia Mar­i­ani from the Aus­tralian Tourism Ex­port Coun­cil (ATEC).

It will also pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to catch up with Tourism Aus­tralia, Tourism Re­search Aus­tralia (TRA), the Aus­tralian Tourism Data Ware­house and many more in­dus­try lead­ers.

En­joy the weather.
