North Coast Tourism Symposium Program
Thursday 27th July | Peppers Resort & Spa, Kingscliff
What is normal in a post-COVID world and how to leverage the evolving trends to remain market leaders? This year’s North Coast Tourism Symposium program sets out to explore changing trends in consumer attitudes and behaviours including transformative digital technology and the demand for the integration of wellness and sustainability principles in products and destinations.
