The Victorian Government’s Visitor Economy Recovery and Reform Plan outlines a roadmap to help to revitalise and grow Victorian tourism following the impacts of the bushfires and the global pandemic.
Visit Victoria is supporting the plan which outlines strategies to attract more international, interstate and intrastate visitors by making the most of marketing expenditure and ensuring state-wide collaboration. The plan is underpinned by a Victorian Government investment of $633 million and serves as a whole-of-state strategy, with a goal of achieving $35 billion in annual visitor expenditure and supporting 300,000 jobs by June 2024.
As a company limited by guarantee, Visit Victoria’s sole shareholder is the Premier of Victoria. The Minister for Tourism and Major Events has portfolio responsibility for the company.
Visit Victoria’s operating environment includes a Board of Directors and a Chief Executive Officer.
