The speakers include:

• Harvey Lister, Chairman and Chief Executive of AEG Ogden

• Donna Moritz, founder of Socially Sorted 
• Sean Blocksidge from The Margaret River Discovery Co

de Waal stated “they join a stellar line-up with social commentator Bernard Salt giving the opening keynote speech, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki the keynote innovation motivational speech and media personality James O’Loghlin the Master of Ceremonies.

“The Tourism Innovation Conference will challenge delegates to think about how they can drive innovation in their business, no matter what industry they are in.

“Concurrent Sessions include discussions on innovation in leadership and management, international marketing, digital marketing, domestic marketing, product development and financial management.

“Forget the black tie, this event is all about having fun with your colleagues and friends as you celebrate the champions of Tropical North Queensland’s leading industry, tourism.”
