Outlook 2019 will be Australia’s pre-eminent national tourism industry and policy conference. Since its inception in 2006, Outlook has developed into one of TTF’s most significant events for its members and the broader tourism industry.

The event will be held on Wednesday, 22 May 2019 and will feature Australian and international keynote speakers, expert panels and case studies.

The conference will bring together public and private sector experts from throughout Australia and across the globe and compromises a one-day conference concluding with the newly introduced closing canapes and cocktails providing an environment conductive to networking and an opportunity to discuss insights from the day’s program. It will provide unrivaled opportunities to engage and connect with industry leaders, to network and to generate new business opportunities.

In 2019, Outlook will feature the theme ‘Tourism Transformation: rethink, evolve, adapt ’ which will set the future of the industry. The program will offer a broader range of topics such as:

  • Solo travel: two’s a crowd – travel solo, travel your way
  • Enhancing the visitor experience
  • Get lost: the rise of experience tourism
  • Undercover tourism: turning history into high-end tourism
  • The economic power of arts and culture

Offering more choice, TTF will continue with it’s revised format providing attendees with the opportunity to hear a broad spectrum of topics that will highlight key issues across the various industry sectors.

Due to its resounding success in 2018, following the conclusion of the official program, delegates will again be invited to attend the closing networking drinks, where they will have the opportunity to enjoy a beverage and canapés whilst discussing their thoughts and insights on the content throughout the day.

This is a conference not to be missed and don’t forget to stay up to date with all the latest news on Twitter and LinkedIn.
