About

The Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) is delighted to present the 2019 Leadership Summit.

The Leadership Summit, now in its 18th year is TTF’s flagship event, designed to facilitate dialogue between political leaders, policy makers and the leaders of TTF’s member organisations from the tourism, aviation and transport industries.

As we head into the Federal Election, the 2019 event will be themed ‘A new vision for Australia’ and will be held on Friday 8th March at PwC, Sydney.

Moderated by David Speers, Political Editor SkyNews, the Summit will provide attendees with an unrivalled opportunity to engage and connect with industry leaders, network with peers from across Australia and generate new business opportunities and partnerships.

Serving as a high level industry consultation session between political leaders, policy makers and TTF’s national CEO members, Leadership has long been considered the single most important event for members to champion the industry’s advocacy program. The event provides unrivalled opportunities to engage with industry leaders and political representatives at the highest level.
