Welcome to our latest newsletter, the TiCSA Tourism Snapshot, for June 2023.
Recently, the State Government presented the 2023-2024 State Budget. Included was $5m per annum (indexed) in the Major Events Fund initiative, $3.5m per annum (indexed) to support the Adelaide 500, and $500k per annum to increase the Adelaide Film Festival investment fund.
A key area that TiCSA received ongoing feedback from members on is more government investment in destination marketing. To build our market share and continue to attract visitors, we need a higher budget appropriation over future years. We will continue to advocate on this important point, and are currently compiling new evidence to demonstrate the benefit of government investment in this area.
In the coming weeks, we will distribute the first edition ‘Careers in Tourism’ guide. This guide highlights the diverse range of jobs, opportunities, and career paths available within our state’s visitor economy. Read more about this exciting project below.
