WA Tourism welcomes funding boost

Published on : Wednesday, March 20, 2019

Tourism Council WA today greeted an announcement made by Premier Mark McGowan of an additional $12 million funding to boost up the tourism industry of WA.


This funding injection will have an instant impact on getting bums-on-seats as it targets marketing campaigns to commence shortly.


“This additional funding will provide an immediate boost to visitor numbers, tourist dollars and local jobs,” Tourism Council WA CEO Evan Hall said.


“Because this boost funding is additional to the Budget, it will enable Tourism WA to undertake additional marketing activities with the tourism industry, which will attract additional visitors.”


The supplementary financial grant for Tourism WA will draw additional cooperative funding from tourism to put into marketing WA.


“This funding boost is what the industry needs to drive immediate bookings and maintain and grow our share of visitors coming to Australia,” Mr Hall said.


“While Australia undergoes a tourism boom, it is imperative that Western Australia focuses on securing and growing its market share through this boost funding.”


The additional boost funding would create an important difference to the result from the Australian Tourism Exchange, taking place in Perth in April.


“With large travel agents from around the world soon to descend on Perth, this funding boost will ensure we can do deals to promote Western Australian holiday packages for immediate sale,” Mr. Hall said.
