Tourism leader to speak at quarterly networking lunch

Tourism leader to speak at quarterly networking lunch Image

The Yarra River Business Association and Southbank Local News’ quarterly business lunch will return in February and will feature one of Australia’s leading tourism officials.

Felicia Mariani, who was recently appointed as director of marketing for Tourism Victoria, will speak to local businesses about the changing needs of the area’s visitors.

Ms Mariani’s impressive CV includes stints as head of the Australian Tourism Export Council and the CEO of Tourism Tasmania.

The event will be at The Wharf Hotel at North Wharf on Friday, February 21.

YRBA executive officer Tim Bracher said he hoped the lunch would attract a mix of local business owners, local workers and local residents.

“We see the lunches as a way of helping to narrow the gap between the precinct’s workers and residents,” Mr Bracher said.

Both the YRBA and the SLN will be hoping to replicate the success of last December’s networking event, which attracted over 70 locals.

Tickets are still available and are $66 per person. This includes a two-course meal, plus drinks.
