Looking forward to the future of tourism; the theme for this year’s DestinationQ forum to be held in Brisbane on Thursday 11 November.
The event is being delivered through a partnership between Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ), the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport, and the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) with the intent of enabling tourism businesses, government, and industry to connect, collaborate and work together to strengthen the Queensland tourism industry.
Representatives from across the tourism and events industries are invited to register to attend for an opportunity to do a little professional networking, after a challenging 18 months, and to hear from various thought leaders in the tourism sector on a range of topics including:
- The significant opportunities from the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games
- The future trends for tourism
- Queensland’s Action Plan for Tourism Recovery
- Queensland’s Restart Strategy, and
- Growing demand for culture and nature-based tourism.
The program is still being finalized and a full list of topics will be uploaded to the DestinationQ website in due course.
The full day forum is expected to welcome up to 500 tourism and event industry leaders from across the state.
The event is free-to-attend and will slot into a busy week for the industry; between the Destination IQ forum on Wednesday 10 November (an industry-meet discussing opportunities for First Nations tourism in Queensland) and the Queensland Tourism Awards which will be held on Friday 12 November.
