The latest data analysis and opportunities in the global tourism market

CEDA welcomes Tourism Australia’s Managing Director John O’Sullivan as we look at the insights and opportunities in the fast-growing tourism and visitor economy.

Tourism contributes $2.55 billion to the Tasmanian economy and supports around 36,700 jobs. With the right settings, the industry is poised for further strong growth.

John will be joined by the University of Tasmania’s Professor Richard Eccleston for a look at the next stages of the the innovative Tourism Tracer research project and how it can guide future investment and strategic decision-making.

Join in the conversation with industry leaders at this CEDA breakfast event.
