The newly appointed Chair of Tourism Events Queensland, Gold Coast local and Mantra CEO Bob East, addressed the Southern Gold Coast tourism industry last month at Skål International Southern Gold Coast’s October breakfast at the Currumbin RSL.
Close to 50 industry professionals turned out to hear Bob’s plan for overseeing the direction of the state’s tourism focus.
Acknowledging the need for a continued focus on domestic tourism, Bob revealed his true competitive spirit and desire to see Queensland return to number 1 – focusing on the opportunities in the coming decades to attract more of the huge middle class Asian market to our shores.
It was a highly informative presentation enjoyed by all. Great to have Bob in our region – a fantastic advocate for the Gold Coast in general – and we look forward to welcoming him back in the future.
