Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) and Capricorn Enterprise hosted tourism operators at the Waterline Restuarant for a Conversations with Industry Capricorn region recently.
The forum is part of a series held through the state to offer operators the chance to connect with representatives from TEQ, Capricorn Enterprise, Department of Tourism, Events, Small Business and the Olympics and the Queensland Tourism Industry Council.
The events are designed to provide industry insights and the opportunity to discuss key business areas, marketing, digital, experience development, events and the international markets.
Kylie Smith General Manager of the Waterline said it was great to see so many of the industry turn up to the event where key state tourism representatives were in attendance.
“We had tourism operators from up in the hinterlands of Byfield, Ferns Hideaway, Capricorn Caves, accommodation houses; The Sail Inn, and Great Keppel Island Hideaway, property developers The Cassidy Group, Reservations systems DigiRez, The Livingstone Shire Council and the Office of Economic Development come along to this event.
“It was great to hear about the new experience focussed direction from TEQ as well as new developments involving Review Pro and their travel experience ranking system.
“TEQ has five pillars they use to categorise travel and tourist experiences; Reef and Island, Nature Encounters, Adventure and Discovery, Lifestyle, Culture and People and Events.
“Obviously we fit firmly in with the Reef and Island being so closely located to the Keppels and Pumpkin Island but we’d like to think that we also fit into Adventure and Discovery and the Lifestyle, Culutre and People and Events and over the coming months we’ll be developing our options to fit in with more of TEQ’s pillars.
“TEQ are ‘Inspiring the world to experience the best address on Earth’ and we’re excited to be a part of that journey.”
