  • Does Australia have the capacity and infrastructure to meet tourism demand? Is there an oversupply or undersupply of travel services?
  • Are operators fully educated on how best to market and cater for inbound markets?
  • What are the facilitation challenges and issues around border protection and visas?
  • Does Australia have any competitive advantages that can be leveraged in its destination marketing efforts?
  • What are the opportunities around regional dispersal of visitors?
  • Raising brand awareness in the digital age – how is industry using data in a smarter ways to convert awareness into actual bookings?
  • Can industry collaboration improve messaging and funding available to stimulate inbound markets?
