Dialogue: World Tourism Day Business Luncheon

Walsh - Dialogue

'Dialogue' is the Tasmanian tourism industry's major 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.

'Dialogue' is designed to bring a national tourism focus to Tasmania, and to engage business and community leaders from across Tasmania in the tourism agenda.

'Dialogue' is held in late September to coincide with the World Tourism Day on 27 September.

Past Dialogue Luncheons

Over the years we've been fortunate to hear from some of the biggest names in the country on their vision for the future of tourism, and Tasmania's place within it.
