Aimed at businesses both in Queensland and across the country, the goal of the project is to identify and highlight the challenges faced by all parties and in turn explore potential solutions to improve financial and operational viability of all businesses involved.

The project’s first phase is planned to be completed in June 2021.

QTIC is currently seeking input from all tourism and hospitality businesses and other stakeholders who are involved in risk management.
