first_imgOne of Queensland’s star attractions:the sea turtle Queensland tour operators look set to benefit from a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Tourism Queensland and the Australian Tourism Export Council at last week’s ATEC Symposium on Hamilton Island.  The MoU will see the two organisations work more closely together, with TQ chief executive Anthony Hayes saying the partnership would provide new business opportunities for the state’s “second largest export earner”. “ATEC is a key link in the chain which helps our tourism operators market and sell their product to the more than two million international visitors who come to Queensland each year,” Mr Hayes said. According to the TQ boss, ATEC also provides valuable opportunities for tourism operators to network with inbound wholesalers as well as participate in industry development initiatives.     ATEC services, workshops and familiarisations will likewise receive the support of TQ, with ATEC managing director Felicia Mariani saying the closer ties would bring “great benefits to ATEC members both in Queensland and nationally”. “ATEC supports the tourism industry through networking, education, advocacy and industry development and strong collaborations with state agencies are important in the delivery of many of our programs,” Ms Mariani said.
