Tourism Industry Council Tasmania (TICT) presents

Dialogue with Dame Kerry Prendergast - Great Visitor Economies

Great Visitor Economies – Insights from across the Ditch


The former long-time Mayor of Wellington, Chair of Tourism NZ, the New Zealand Environment Protection Authority, and the New Zealand Film Commission, Dame Kerry Prendergast is one of her country’s leading public figures, who had been at the driving seat growing its exceptional visitor economy. Having stepped down as Chair of Tourism New Zealand in April, Kerry will be visiting Tasmania to share her unique experiences and insights with Tasmanian tourism, business and local government leaders at the Eighth Annual TICT Dialogue Luncheon.


From the enduring success of the 100% Pure New Zealand Brand; to the nation’s ‘open skies’ policies deregulating air access; balancing commercialism and conservation in protected areas; growing a renowned local film industry; engaging visitors with indigenous peoples; local government role in tourism; and managing visitor growth, the New Zealand experience is a case study for Tasmania.


This promises to be a fascinating, insightful and thought provoking afternoon at MONA with one of our world’s most exceptional business and tourism leaders.
