Our new board

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
