The Beyond Tourism 2020 Steering Committee submitted its report to Government in December 2018. In January 2019, the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment launched a consultation process to seek industry and governments’ views on the draft report. The next long-term tourism strategy will extend out to the year 2030. This consultation process will provide valuable insights in shaping the trajectory of Australia’s tourism industry.

The Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, has just released the Committee’s Report to Government and launched a public consultation process. The report and details of the consultation process and timing can be found here

The purpose of consultation is to seek feedback on the Committee’s vision for the future of the tourism industry in order to formulate the next long-term tourism strategy.

Please be advised that an on demand webinar has been published which provides an overview of the Beyond 2020 Steering Committee and its report to Government. The PCO Association encourage you to share this throughout your networks.

In addition, registrations have now opened for a face-to-face industry roundtable consultation session to be held from 2.30 – 4pm on Friday 1 March 2019 in Launceston, Tasmania. This is to coincide with the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards that evening.

For industry associations, we encourage you to share these details with your members, particularly any who will be in Launceston for the Tourism Awards.

A reminder that the portal for written feedback will be open until 8 March 2019.
