Industry Reference Panel to develop a blueprint for Queensland’s tourism recovery

18 March 2021

The Queensland Government has formed an Industry Reference Panel to chart a COVID-19 recovery course for Queensland’s tourism industry.

The new Panel is made up of industry heavyweights including: aviation leader Liz Savage as Chair, former Tourism Australia CEO Andrew McEvoy and Tourism and Events Queensland Chair Brett Godfrey.

The Panel will oversee the development of an Action Plan for Tourism Recovery that will identify new recovery initiatives that position Queensland’s tourism industry for success after COVID-19.

Submissions will be invited from across the industry to shape the plan, with a series of public discussion papers to be issued from April 2021.

Roundtable events will provide further opportunity for the panel to seek industry input into the action plan.

The plan will be delivered in two phases - with actions to be identified by the middle of 2021 and a final plan to be released by early 2022.
