A QFI luncheon with guest speaker, Geoff Hogg, Managing Director, Queensland, The Star Entertainment Group was held on 24 May.
QFI’s Opportunities for Growth Report identified emerging economies are becoming an increasing source of competition in the tourism industry and are predicted to overtake advanced economies in terms of global international tourist arrivals by 2030. The report shows Queensland’s got what future Asia wants. However, to grow its tourism industry, Queensland will need to address the estimated 5,144 skilled labour shortages predicted between 2015-2020, and adapt with the changing nature of tourism, as tourists are increasingly looking for multiple experiences in a single holiday. Geoff highlighted trends we are seeing globally, and how this will impact Queensland across a range of sectors.
