About TICT

Tourism Industry Council Tasmania (TICT) is the peak body representing the Tasmanian tourism industry. We are a not-for-profit organisation, promoting the value of tourism and advocating on behalf of our industry.

Our vision is a united tourism industry, working with government and the community to deliver:

  • World class visitor experiences;
  • Sustainable growth and profitability for our tourism operators; and
  • A buoyant Tasmanian visitor economy.

Industry Council

TICT brings the Tasmanian tourism industry together through our large, representative and voluntary Industry Council.

Twenty-four directors, elected by TICT members, represent all sectors of the industry and regions of Tasmania. Directors serve a two-year term, with half-Council elections at each Annual General Meeting. The Council meets 8 times each year to discuss industry policy and priorities, oversee TICT’s industry programs, and determine industry strategy and direction.

The Chair of Tourism Industry Council Tasmania is Daniel Leesong.

Daniel is Managing Director of Coal River Farm and was appointed TICT Chair in May 2016.

Daniel is supported by two Deputy Chairs: Robert Pennicott, Managing Director of Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, and Simon McDermott, Managing Director of McDermott's Coaches.

The Chair and Deputy Chairs are appointed by the Directors every two years.
