Tasmania requests key learnings from tourism opportunity

FOLLOWING the highly successful tourism leadership tour to Tasmania earlier this year, Fraser Coast delegates have been invited back to Hobart, courtesy of Destination Southern Tasmania, to share their learnings.  

On August 9, Lisa Stephenson, Fraser Coast Regional Council Executive Manager Community and Culture will accompany Tourism and Events Queensland Destination Director Sharon Raguse to present at the Destination Southern Tasmania Industry Summit 2016.  

The peak tourism body for the area, Destination Southern Tasmania (DST), invited a Fraser Coast delegate to return and share the learnings gained from following the 4 day trip last March to the region which was attended by a leadership group of Fraser Coast operators and stakeholders.  

Lisa Stephenson said it was a bonus opportunity to share knowledge, inspiration and a passion for delivering tourism products in our own region.  

"I am honoured to be asked to go back and represent our region and to share the lessons learned from the Southern Tasmanian tourism industry.  

It is also a valuable opportunity to showcase to their industry leaders the unique experiences that our region has to offer and the improvements that we are progressing.  

"I am looking forward to further learning opportunities at the summit and sharing them with tourism operators on the Fraser Coast," said Ms Stephenson.  

Over 150 delegates from across the DST region attend the summit each year with an events program that is strategic and outcomes focused.  

The Fraser Coast Tourism Leadership Tour will be taking place again in 2017 with nominations opening later this year.
