In their newest weekly industry newsletter, ‘Eye on Q’, they explained as tourism operations of Queensland remains unchanged, TEQ is working together with Tourism Australia, the other State Tourism Organizations and all of Queensland’s RTOs to make sure that our international trade partners and consumers get the newest information regarding the situation.
“We are sensitive to the ongoing emergency situation and in consultation with the RTOs, TEQ has confirmed our international marketing will largely continue as normal.”
“In some limited cases (such as joint Tourism Australia campaigns) some marketing may be paused or rescheduled. We have also re-programmed some domestic marketing activity,” it writes.
From current and future guests, it explains that it welcomes any sorts of feedbacks in regards to calling off or postponing travel – and requests that this information should be shared through the respective RTO or TEQ Destination Director.
“It is important for our industry to ensure travellers are aware of conditions and safe travelling options.”
Queensland has been quite lucky to remain untouched mostly by the current ravages of bushfires and the tourism operators of Queensland and experiences are operating as usual.
“At Tourism and Events Queensland our thoughts are with fire-affected communities across Australia who have lost so much and the heroes working tirelessly to keep us safe. It is a difficult time and while Queensland has been fortunate to remain largely unaffected by the current bushfires our thoughts remain with our fellow Australians during these challenging times.”
