As new members of the “Australian Tourism Export Council“ (ATEC) the Guides Australia team attended a networking event on the 15th October 2019 at Eagles Nest, The Point  Brisbane. 

The evening consisted of a presentation by guest speaker from the UQ Tourism School, Prof. Sara. Dolcinar who’s message was : “How to make tourists become more environmentally friendly”.

Sara’s core research interests are the improvement of market segmentation methodology and the testing and refinement of measures used in social science research. Because her key research interests are not tied to any particular application area, Sara has studied a range of different applied research areas, including sustainable tourism and tourism marketing, environmental volunteering, foster carer and public acceptance of water alternatives and water conservation measures.”

Definitely a beneficial topic to Guides Australia, as we pride ourselves on being an environmentally friendly company.

Following the presentation we had the opportunity to network and meet with key Inbound Tour Operators and Suppliers, providing them an insight on what Guides Australia has to offer to enhance their businesses.
