Tourism Industry Coincil Tasmania

The Tasmanian tourism industry’s major business and networking event, the annual Tourism Conference, is back for 2024 – and it’s time to save the date in your calendars! LAUNCESTON: TUESDAY 20 - WEDNESDAY 21 AUGUST 2024

The two-day event will again feature practical workshops on contemporary tourism and business skills and insights, the latest industry updates and market intel, inspirational keynote speakers and lots of networking opportunities.

And after two consecutive years of focusing on Positive Impact Tourism - this year we're looking beyond the horizon to again ask ourselves; what's next?

The 2024 Conference ‘Future Focus’ will further the conversations had over the past two years but push us beyond what we know now, inspiring us to think about what is possible for our industry, guided by our 2030 Strategy.

  • We'll unpack how we create a resilient and innovative industry in the face of constant change and economic headwinds.
  • We'll look to the latest developments in aviation and sea travel.
  • We'll learn from each other about developing authentic Tasmanian experiences.
  • And how we can harness the rapidly evolving digital landscape to support our work rather than fight it.

You'll also hear the latest on consumer insights and travel trends, plus we'll dig even deeper into sustainability and accessibility.

You can expect insightful and thought-leading contributions on practical tourism and business skills, cutting-edge destination planning and management, high energy inspirational people, and the very best networking opportunities on the Tassie tourism calendar.

  • Day 1: A half day of 12 practical Business Workshops designed for tourism operators and industry professionals wanting tips and insights on improving their marketing, business planning, sustainability, and leadership skills.
  • The Evening Event will be packed full of networking opportunities while enjoying the best-of-the-best Tasmanian food and beverage offerings and local entertainment.
  • Day 2: Full day of inspirational keynote speakers and panel discussions.
