Wakatipu tourism operators will get their chance to comment
on the industry's road map for the next two decades and hear
the latest updates when the Tourism Industry Association
(TIA) Regional Roadshow rolls up in Queenstown on May 16.
The programme involves an overview of the association's major
strategic initiatives and what it hopes to achieve over the
next two years with new chief executive Martin Snedden.
The results of the TIA Hotels Annual Operating Survey was
billed to provide insights into the significance of the
hospitality and tourism industry within the region.
An update on the Tourism Intelligence Strategy, one of the
TIA's five major strategic initiatives, aimed to provide
information which was accurate, timely and accessible as well
as relevant and easily understood by TIA members, the wider
tourism industry and other parties with a stake in tourism.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment will give
an update on regional tourism indicators to show how the
tourism dollar is spent within the community.
Input on priorities, challenges and solutions for the tourism
industry will be sought on the National Tourism Plan,
intended to be the industry's guiding light over the next 10
to 20 years.
Finally, the programme will feature an update from
Destination Queenstown chief executive Graham Budd.
The roadshow will stop at Crowne Plaza Queenstown.
Association members enter free and non-member entry is $50.
