Inaugural WA Tourism Conference brings sectors together

Inaugural WA Tourism Conference brings sectors together
August 4, 2015

For the first time, a single tourism conference will be delivered in Western Australia through a partnership between Caravan Industry Association WA, Tourism Council WA and the Visitor Centre Association of WA.

The result of this partnership is a fully integrated tourism conference delivering insights and information on the critical topics and issues for the entire industry.

Reflecting on the partnership between these three organisations, the aim of the WA Tourism Conference is to bring together delegates from across Western Australia’s tourism industry. From operators to staff, managers to government officials, this event is suitable for anyone and everyone involved in the tourism, caravan and visitor servicing industries.

The Conference is being held from the evening of Monday 21st through to Wednesday 23rd September at Crown Perth.

Dr Ric Charlesworth, former Kookaburras Head Coach, has been announced as the keynote speaker, heading more than 50 speakers and panellists from across Australia, including Government Ministers, industry leaders and tourism experts.

The Conference will be prefaced with a Welcome Cocktail Function on Monday night, followed by a full-day of sessions on the Tuesday followed by a conference dinner in the evening. On the Wednesday, the conference will split into three streams for each of the organisations, delivering tailored speakers, topics and opportunities for organisation-specific business to be carried out.

The Conference is supported by Tourism WA.
