The Tasmanian tourism industry and the Tasmanian Government are finalising a new joint T21 Tourism Strategy to 2030.

Our new T21 strategy will continue the work progressed through the T21 Visitor Economy Action Plan that guided our industry response to the upheaval of COVID-19, while establishing a vision for Tasmania's tourism evolution for the remainder of the decade and beyond.

At the heart of this vision is our commitment to a positive impact agenda, where tourism contributes to delivering a positive impact on the lives of Tasmanians, our visitors, and our environment.

Throughout October and November, we will be running workshops with tourism operators and industry stakeholders across the state to define what a positive impact agenda means for the industry - on both a state and local level and for individual businesses. 

The innovation and creativity of our industry is renowned, and this is an opportunity to contribute your ideas towards a shared vision for the future of Tasmanian tourism.

Joining the sessions will be senior representatives from Tourism Tasmania, TICT, Department of State Growth and your regional tourism organisation.
