Our new board
CONGRATULATIONS to our new Board members and our new chairman Tony Baker and my thanks to Gordon Wellham our retiring chairman and Peter Martin who for many years has been the company secretary and finance controller.
TPDD has been extremely busy over the last few weeks with our AGM, hosting media and trade famils and there is no let up. This included a UK group, Quickbeds, Flightcentre, TEQ and our six media.
We are attended Inbound up North last week and have Sell TNQ in Port Douglas this weekend. Mid November I will be on the Queensland on Tour roadshow to UK, Nordic countries and Paris.
Approaching very quickly are the council elections and it is imperative we all reenforce the importance of having a fully funded marketing body, TPDD, and the huge reliance the Douglas region has on the tourism industry as the major economic driver.
TPDD will be holding an event for the industry to give you the chance to hear the candidates policies regarding tourism and tourism funding. It will be held at QT on 7th November.
Some properties are reporting great occupancy for Christmas and through to the end of October.
With ATE in Cairns next year we have good positive times ahead.
