This year’s event was held at the Silverwater Resort on Tuesday 25th August the day consisted of a full day conference, networking drinks, with a local produce display and dinner.
The Phillip Island tourism industry is a huge economic driver for the region, contributing over $653 million to the Phillip Island economy in 2012-13 and generating over 5700 jobs.
The conference delivered by Destination Phillip Island Regional Tourism Board, provides an opportunity for business operators, local government, industry organisations, and anyone with an interest in tourism and events to gather, learn and discuss the opportunities.
The theme “Investing in the Future” delivered a number of presentations on future projects for the region and state.
