Advocacy & Industry Policy
QTIC is the state peak body for tourism. We are a not-for-profit membership organisation representing members' interests - both large and small - and maintain strong industry representation in all relevant forums. QTIC is owned and governed by the industry through member based councils, boards and committees. QTIC reflects the views of the industry at all levels throughout Queensland and works closely with the media, key federal and state government agencies, Ministers and officials. As the industry's principle advocacy force, QTIC is constantly before governments seeking the best outcome for tourism and for Queensland.
DestinationQ is a partnership agreement between the Queensland Government and the state's tourism industry (represented by Queensland Tourism Industry Council) which recognises tourism as one of the four pillars of the economy.
One of QTIC's objectives is to give the state’s tourism sector a unified voice in all important negotiations and policy-making processes which could impact on the welfare of the communities that rely on tourism. QTIC is heavily involved in collaborating with industry and providing a voice for the industry.
