Gladstone Region Great Barrier Reef Forum

05 February 2019 09:30 AM - 05 February 2019 12:00 PM

Sandcastles 1770 Motel and Resort, Town of 1770

Tourism can change the way people think and engage with the Great Barrier Reef by giving them direct, personal access. Collectively, we have the power to promote a united GBR tourism message via visitors, media and travel trade and increase tourism’s profile as an important reef custodian.

Tourism and Events Queensland will be delivering a series of forums in early February. These are designed to engage directly with tourism operators in Great Barrier Reef destinations to ensure consistent messages about the value of the GBR and the contribution tourism makes, as well as the ways consumers can get involved to understand both the challenges and opportunities of the GBR.  Results of research undertaken in 2018 to understand domestic and international travellers' attitudes and perceptions of the Reef and TEQ’s new strategic plan for marketing the reef will be shared as part of the session.

The Gladstone Region forum will be held on Tuesday 5th February 2019 in Town of 1770 at Sandcastles 1770 Motel & Resort 9:30am-12pm. Register for the even here or email azra.hadzic@queensland.com for more information.
