Noosa has been announced as the host destination for the 2022 Queensland Information Centre Association (QICA) Conference.
Volunteers from the Noosa Visitor Information Centre and the Parkyn Hut centre in Tewantin travelled to Miles on Queensland’s Western Downs last week to attend the 2021 QICA conference where the announcement was made.
QICA is a membership based organisation consisting of information centres throughout Queensland with a mission to professionally facilitate the development of the Tourist and Visitor Information Centres in Queensland.
“We are delighted to be announced as the host destination for the 2022 conference and look forward to welcoming delegates from across Queensland to Noosa,” Tourism Noosa chief executive officer Melanie Anderson said.
“The annual conference connects volunteers and visitor information centre teams from across the state and while there is a conference agenda with guest speakers from the industry, the exciting aspect for us as a destination is the opportunity to showcase operators and the region through the famil program”.
The conference is a significant opportunity for Noosa and is expected to attract a strong number of delegates.
“Delegates also typically extend their stay beyond the conference and famil program which will provide an economic boost to the region in a traditionally quiet time of year,” Anderson said.
