QTIC World Tourism Day Breakfast

Friday 25th September

Each year the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) celebrates the importance of the industry to the wider global community with World Tourism Day in September.  Despite the challenges of this year, we would like to highlight the value tourism provides to the Queensland economy and to the community in general.    

The focus of this event is to recognise and celebrate the innovative responses tourism businesses have made to the COVID-19 crisis. As the UNWTO 2020 theme celebrates the Year of Tourism and Rural Development, there will be a special focus on regional and rural businesses who are resilient innovators. 

Our guest speaker is Leanne Kemp, Queensland’s Chief Entrepreneur, recognised internationally as an innovator and leader. Leanne works on a global scale to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation and is an advocate of sustainability in business. 

The function will be the first live networking event for QTIC since the easing of restrictions and will strictly comply with the Industry Framework for COVID Safe Events in Queensland. Tickets will be limited.
