The Regional Tourism Career Roadshow, a project to promote job opportunities and careers in the tourism and hospitality industry will be held in Brisbane on the 25 and 26 May this year.
Being rolled out to the thirteen tourism regions throughout Queensland, the Roadshow events aim to encourage school leavers, mature age, and people from all backgrounds to consider taking on some of the diverse roles in the tourism and hospitality industry. There are many career paths in the industry and thousands of job opportunities currently in Queensland, especially as domestic tourism is showing strong signs of recovery. The two-day events will feature hands-on activities, such as cooking, events planning and tourism tasks, allowing participants to gain a first-hand insight into different career pathways.

Key Performance Indicators, or ‘KPIs’, are a common tool used to manage employees, but unfortunately, they often get a bad rap from both managers and workers for being onerous, inappropriate, time-consuming to enforce and assess, or just one more acronym mistakenly spelt with an apostrophe (despite being a plural, not a possessive noun). So why do businesses still use them?
Winners have been revealed for Queensland’s hotly contested Top Tourism Town, with 37 outstanding finalists from across the state competing for the top award. The Awards hosted by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) recognise and celebrate towns that excel in providing an outstanding visitor experience.
Noosa takes the win for the Top Tourism Town Award (population over 5000) while Agnes Water comes out on top of its rivals earning the Top Small Tourism Town Award (population under 5000).
