Tourism Industry Recovery Agenda
After extensive consultation with our members, key stakeholders and the broader industry, Tourism Industry Council South Australia (TiCSA) released our Tourism Industry Recovery Agenda in early 2022.
An extremely challenging two years has devastated the tourism industry, with many businesses losing workers, depleting their cash reserves, going into further debt, selling assets to stay afloat and, sadly, many businesses have made the heart-breaking decision to close their doors.
We will continue to advocate to the government and other key stakeholders to provide the support needed for tourism businesses to rebuild and become strong once again. The tourism industry needs our support to rebuild, recover and eventually, enter a period of growth.
TiCSA established five policy priorities for tourism industry recovery, which are detailed below.

In the lead up to the 2022 State Election, TiCSA and RAA Travel co-hosted two Policy Forum Breakfasts.
On the 8th of March, we heard from the Premier and Minister for Tourism, the Hon Steven Marshall MP, on his vision and policies if re-elected in the upcoming election.
We followed this up on the 15th of March with the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Peter Malinauskas, and the Shadow Minister for Tourism, the Hon. Zoe Bettison MP.
