The Tourism Industry in the Goulburn River Valley region benefits greatly from the service of over 200 volunteers in Visitor Information Centres located at Marysville, Eildon, Yea, Alexandra, Kilmore, Seymour, Nagambie Lakes and Greater Shepparton.
Volunteers in these Visitor Information Centres provide a crucial role in disseminating information, responding to visitor enquiries, and often being the visitors’ first point of contact with our region. Travellers look to Visitor Information Centres for their first hand knowledge on things to see and do, places to stay and dine, activities and events.
Lean about how your business can benefit from participating in our FREE promotion to volunteers in the region here.
The theme of the conference ‘Empowering industry – working smarter not harder’ and brought together business and tourism industry representatives from across the region to hear presentations from tourism experts, industry leaders and small business innovators.
