DO YOU SUP­PORT THE ROLE OF TOURISM PORT DOU­GLAS DAIN­TREE AS AN IN­DE­PEN­DENT BODY WORK­ING WITH IN­DUS­TRY AND COUN­CIL TO UN­DER­TAKE DESTI­NA­TION TOURISM MAR­KET­ING OF THE DOU­GLAS SHIRE?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

Yes. The role of pro­mo­tional and mar­ket­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and en­gage­ment with mem­bers, stake­hold­ers and part­ners, in­clud­ing Coun­cil is best done by an in­de­pen­dent body. I sup­port the cur­rent pri­or­i­ties of desti­na­tion mar­ket­ing and pro­mo­tion, build­ing e-mar­ket­ing and so­cial me­dia ca­pa­bil­i­ties, max­imis­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties, pro­vid­ing mar­ket in­tel­li­gence on new ex­ist­ing mar­kets, trade and in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tion, mem­ber­ship en­gage­ment and work­ing closely with Coun­cil.

Yes. I be­lieve it is an in­te­gral pil­lar in the co-or­di­nated ap­proach I would like to see im­ple­mented for the Shire. As I com­mented be­fore I’ve al­ways taken the view TPDD punches above its weight but we have to be sure we are giv­ing the or­gan­i­sa­tion our full sup­port to en­able you to ful­fill your role as af­fec­tively as you can. By cre­at­ing more as­sis­tance for TPDD through the Coun­cil and its ad­vi­sory boards, I know we can achieve even higher qual­ity re­sults.
