30.06.2020Discover your own back yard

On Tuesday 23 July, the Committees for Melbourne and Sydney co-hosted an event on ‘Australia’s visitor economy – Time to discover your own back yard’ to discuss ‘Exploring Sydney and Melbourne’s role in driving the Australian Tourism ‘road to recovery’. 

As Australian travel and gathering restrictions start to lift, and international travel is still on hold, what does the future hold for our gateway cities of Sydney and Melbourne?

Can the domestic visitation replace international visitors during COVID-19?

What lies ahead for our Cities’ leisure, business events and accommodations sectors?

Thank you to Gabriel Metcalf, CEO, Committee for Sydney, Adele Labine-Romain, Tourism Sector Lead, Partner, Deloitte Access Economics, Simon McGrath, COO, Accor Pacific and Martine Letts, CEO, Committee for Melbourne for your contributions to the discussion.
