Dialogue Luncheon

Dialogue 2018

'Dialogue' is the Tasmanian tourism industry's annual business luncheon where we invite a leading national figure in the Australian tourism and travel industries to address Tasmanian tourism, business, community and government representatives.

John O'Sullivan is Managing Director of Tourism Australia - the nation's global tourism marketing agency responsible for driving international visitor demand to Australia.

John joined Tourism Australia in 2014 with 20 years experience in sports marketing and events management with Fox Sports, Events Queensland and Football Federation Australia.

This year's 'Dialogue' will shine a bright spotlight on regional tourism in the Cradle Coast including updates on the next generation Spirit of Tasmania ships and the Cradle Mountain Master Plan.

Enjoy a two course luncheon, local North-West beverages, networking opportunities - and be among the very first to experience Devonport's sparkling brand new paranaple convention centre!

Dialogue is an initiative of Tourism Industry Council Tasmania

With thanks to The Advocate and Tourism Australia.
