Role and Impact of Technology in Tourism and Hospitality
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EST)
Newcastle, New South Wales
In 2011, a total of 7.8 million visitors came to the Hunter. But, did you know around 60 per cent of those travellers now want to book online?
Our region’s digital assets currently channel thousands of pre-qualified business leads to local tourism operators and event organisers enhancing their marketing efforts and attract increased visitation annually.
The Lunaticks Society of Newcastle has enticed some of the leading names in the Tourism Industry to share their wisdom and reveal their secrets on tourism in the digital age.
We’ll explore the latest online technology applications that are shaping our local travel and tourism industry. What destinations should know about how to enhance their marketing efforts and attract increased visitation and what digital assets are missing to promote Newcastle as a tourist destination?
We'll have a Q&A session with the likes of Nora McWilliams Leisure Marketing Manager at Hunter Valley Wine Country Tourism and Founder of 4Apples, Andy Howard creator of the Newcastle App and Head of Digital at The Village of Useful and Georgia Murphy Business Tourism & Conventions Developer at the Newcastle Convention Bureau to name a few.
Regardless of the size of your business or event this will be an event you won’t want to miss.
Registration. Kicks off at 6.30 with the main event starting at 7pm.
