  • Tourism in Action: A word from Daniel Gschwind (April)

    At the end of next week, I will step down from my role here at the QTIC. After more than 21 years with this organisation, it will be quite a change for me. The organisation, on the other hand, will continue to serve its members and the industry with the same dedication and commitment as it always has. We have an outstanding staff, with the skills and compassion to continue supporting our members, our other stakeholders and all parties who contribute to this extraordinary industry.

  • Tourism in Action: A word from Daniel Gschwind (February)

    I am not sure when the time will finally come for us to write an unconditionally positive message at the top of our newsletter. I for one cannot wait.
