The Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) is hosting two series of educational and support tutorials and webinars that are aimed at providing resources on survival and adaptation to businesses in the travel industry. The tutorials are available every Tuesday for the next 36 weeks and are led by various individuals in and out of the travel sector. They are also providing webinars based on leadership and overcoming the challenges that many in our community are facing. The shift in focus towards domestic tourism has also been discussed, as we’ve mentioned plenty of times in this blog series.

For our Australian and New Zealander counterparts, the webinars will also be discussing the “trans-Tasman bubble”, which relates to the likelihood of the borders opening between Australia and New Zealand in the coming weeks. The idea is that the Aussies going to New Zealand won’t need to isolate for 14 days, nor Kiwis heading to Australia. Opening up the borders between the two nations will be a huge relief for many in the tourism sector, with Australians accounting for more than half of New Zealand’s international visitor arrivals normally. For Australia, New Zealand is a close second, making up 1.38 million visitors in 2018 after 1.43 million Chinese visitors.

ATEC’s education and support series are a great way to not only discover practices your business could be adapting and improving during this time, but also to keep informed about industry news.
