1 Tourism Australia Corporate Plan Delegates from Perfect China climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, 13 July 2013 MINISTER S MESSAGE Tourism is a major contributor to the Australian economy. It generates $98.5 billion in spending and employs over half a million Australians. The Tourism Australia Corporate Plan continues the blue-print established in 2010 under the Tourism 2020 strategy. Strengthening competitiveness, focusing on the needs of the target customer and delivering through partnership are core to the plan. I commend to you the Tourism Australia Corporate Plan. Hon. Andrew Robb, AO MP Minister for Trade and Investment Tourism Australia s role is to grow demand and foster a competitive and sustainable Australian tourism industry through partnership marketing to targeted global consumers in key markets. Who we are, what we do As Australia s national tourism organisation, Tourism Australia aims to increase international leisure and business events visitation by promoting Australia as a compelling tourism destination. Originally established as the Australian Tourist Commission in 1967, Tourism Australia is an Australian Government statutory authority formed under the Tourism Australia Act It is governed by a Board of Directors that reports to the Australian Minister for Trade and Investment, under the Statement of Expectations, the Tourism Australia Act 2004 and the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act Along with its predecessor, the Australian Tourist Commission, Tourism Australia has a strong reputation for developing innovative tourism marketing campaigns, and has built one of the world s most admired and desirable destination brands. Objectives Tourism Australia works with the Australian tourism industry and federal, state and territory governments to maximise the industry s economic contribution. To provide industry with a long-term vision and focus effort, the Tourism 2020 strategy was launched in Under the strategy, the industry aims to increase annual overnight visitor expenditure from $70 billion 2 to between $115 billion and $140 billion by To help achieve this target, Tourism Australia is focused on: increasing the number of leisure and business event visitors improving visitor value, including spend per trip and spend per night competing with out-of-region travel destinations 3 supporting supply-side factors, such as aviation and tourism infrastructure investment. 1 The CAC Act details rules about reporting, accountability and matters relating to Commonwealth authorities such as banking, investment, the conduct of officers. 2 The 2009 benchmark under the 2020 Tourism Industry Potential the latter preceded the Tourism 2020 strategy. 3 Out-of-region travel destinations are places beyond target customers immediate geographic region. The immediate geographic region is a short-haul travel destination for the target customer and so is not a direct competitor with Australia. 1

2 Managing Director s Message Proximity to the thriving Asian region and Australia s international appeal as a tourism destination - particularly our landscapes, our people, and our food and wine - provide significant opportunities for Australian tourism. This Tourism Australia Corporate Plan outlines clear strategies to take advantage of these and other strengths. An important impetus will be a renewed focus on innovative partnerships, as well as continued collaboration with the tourism industry and state and territory tourism organisations. Tourism Australia looks forward to working with our partners and stakeholders to achieve the Tourism 2020 vision and ultimately deliver real economic benefits to all Australians. John O Sullivan Managing Director The Tourism Australia Corporate Plan continues the strategic path established by Tourism Australia in 2010 under the banner of the 2020 Tourism Industry Potential and Tourism Emphasis has been on strengthening competitiveness; taking advantage of growth in the Asian region while maintaining activity in traditional markets like the UK and USA; and continuing to deliver on the needs of the high-spending target customer. Since the launch of Tourism 2020, the Asian region has continued to grow strongly, led by China 4. Marketing funding has been bolstered by the Asia Marketing Fund announced in May The Fund will provide $48.5 million over four years 5 to promote Australian tourism, significantly increasing Tourism Australia s marketing footprint in Asia. Initiatives that will continue through include the rollout of the China and India 2020 Plans; work with states and territories, airports and airlines to support new routes to Australia; increased use of digital and social media platforms and partnership marketing initiatives. Tourism Australia will continue to improve its competitive position. Research confirms that Australian tourism has clear competitive differentiation through world class nature, people and food and wine. Strong brand recognition has been built through the There s nothing like Australia campaign. From 2014, food and wine content and imagery will be strengthened, with Restaurant Australia positioning integrated into marketing activities in all markets under the There s nothing like Australia umbrella. This will emphasize the uniqueness of Australia s food and wine experiences. A new version of australia.com will also be launched. This will enhance consumers online experience of what Australia has to offer as a tourism destination. Tourism Australia is a partnership marketing organisation. Working with partners will help to heighten marketing effectiveness and achieve cut through with audiences. The Best Jobs in the World campaign, launched in 2013, is an example of Tourism Australia s partnership marketing at its best. The success of this campaign will be leveraged and continued in 2014 and beyond. This plan has been prepared in consultation with state and territory tourism organisations, recognising the importance of our partnership.

3 Australian tourism industry outlook Australian tourism is uniquely placed to take advantage of this Asian century. The region is forecast to provide over a million additional visitors to Australia by (Tourism Research Australia). China is already Australia s most valuable market in financial terms and will remain a top priority for the Australian tourism industry in Whilst targeting growth, Tourism Australia will maintain a balanced portfolio approach to its global marketing over the period, recognising the important contribution of traditional markets such as the UK, USA and Japan as well as the need to increase presence in those markets with potential to provide strong returns. Economic Tourism Australia anticipates an improved economic environment for inbound tourism in , with global GDP forecast to trend at around 3.1 per cent in 2014 (Tourism Research Australia). Economic growth in Asian economies is expected to ease slightly, while the economies of the USA, Western Europe and New Zealand are forecast to increase modestly. The Asian region provides significant opportunity for Australian tourism. It is one of the fastest growing tourism markets in the world, driven by good economic growth and an emerging urban and affluent middle class. Over the period , Australian tourism is likely to benefit from a weakening Australian dollar. The Australian dollar is expected to average US$0.91 in 2014, depreciating to US$0.88 by (Tourism Research Australia). A depreciating Australian dollar increases the price competitiveness of Australian tourism products and services for visitors from overseas, particularly for price sensitive segments. Destination appeal Australia is regularly rated as one of the most desired tourism destinations in the world. In FutureBrand s Country Brand Index, Australia remained the number one country brand in the world for Advocacy 6, indicating that it continues to deliver on and exceed travellers expectations. In , Tourism Australia will strive to convert this strong support into travel to Australia. Arrivals, expenditure and visitor nights increased in the year ending June 2013 compared to the year ending June there were 6.3 million visitors to Australia (up 4.9 per cent), $28.2 billion in spending (up 5.9 per cent) and 212 million visitor nights (up 5.9 per cent). Arrivals from Asia represented 43 per cent of total inbound arrivals, up from 41 per cent in Asia continues to be the fastest growing region arrivals were up 9 per cent for year ending June 2013 (while averaging 4 per cent over the past 5 years). China was the biggest contributor to this growth. A review of Australia s market share between 2009 and 2012 reveals mixed performance across key markets. There was growth in India, the Middle East, Indonesia and France; steady performance in China, Hong Kong and Brazil; slowing loss of share in Singapore and Malaysia; and decreasing market share in the USA, Canada, the UK, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Italy and New Zealand (Tourism Economics, 2013). In an increasingly competitive market, holding or growing market share is an ambitious goal that Australian tourism will strive to achieve. Over , travel demand is forecast to increase steadily. International visitors are estimated to increase by 5.6 per cent in (to 7 million visitors) and by 4 per cent for the following financial years to (to 9.3 million). Through the period, Australian tourism will face a progressively competitive marketing environment, with increased marketing by competitor destinations, changing distribution channels and broadening media options. Aviation outlook Air access will play a fundamental role in the achievement of Tourism 2020 objectives. During , aviation is expected to remain a positive factor for Australian tourism. Tourism Research Australia forecasts assume slightly weaker overall growth in inbound aviation capacity through and , up 7 and 5 per cent respectively. Over , carriers within the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Latin America regions are likely to continue to drive global aviation growth, with Australia expected to benefit from strong capacity increases from Asia particularly China, Malaysia and Singapore as well as the USA and Middle East. Modest contractions in direct services from the UK and Europe are anticipated over the next two years. Growth is also likely from continued expansion of Low Cost Carriers. Similarly, alliances, code shares and consolidation will continue to evolve both in Australia and overseas, improving connections and point-to-point booking processes for consumers. 6 Advocacy = Do visitors recommend the country to friends, family and colleagues? (Futurebrand, Country Brand Index ) 3

4 Tourism 2020 Tourism 2020 is the Australian tourism industry s long-term strategy to grow its economic contribution. The strategy focuses on improving the industry s global performance and competitiveness by pursuing new opportunities for growth and addressing supply-side factors. Tourism Australia will work with the tourism industry and governments across Australia to achieve Tourism 2020 s goals and make the most of growing demand from Asia. All state and territory tourism organisations have adopted the Tourism 2020 strategy as a base for their own strategies. Tourism ministers from federal, state and territory governments are leading the implementation of Tourism 2020, supported by the Australian Standing Committee on Tourism (ASCOT), which comprises chief executive officers of peak government tourism organisations. Tourism 2020 aims to: increase overnight tourism spend from $70 billion in 2009 to between $115 billion and $140 billion by 2020 hold or grow market share in key regions increase tourism labour and skills increase accommodation capacity, particularly in capital cities increase international and domestic aviation capacity increase the tourism industry s quality and productivity. 6 Key Delivery Strategies Tourism Australia s contribution 1 Grow visitor demand from Asia, particularly China and India 2 Build competitive digital capacity 3 Encourage investment through regulatory reform 4 Improve tourism transport capacity and infrastructure 5 Address labour and skills shortages and greater Indigenous participation 6 Increase industry productivity, innovation and quality Deliver Asia Marketing Fund (AMF) initiatives, including: China: accelerating the China 2020 Geographic Strategy to grow tourism to Australia and gain competitive advantage in China s secondary cities of Qingdao, Chengdu and Chongqing Japan and South Korea: strengthening efforts to rebuild these inbound markets Across Asia: increasing aviation cooperative partnerships between Tourism Australia, state and territory tourism organisations, airlines and airports serving Australia from Asia Research: undertaking new research and assisting industry s understanding and engagement with Asia.

Marketing will include traditional channel activities such as brand advertising, cooperative advertising with partners, promotions, famils, public relations and events that promote positive word of mouth. Increased resources and effort will be dedicated to digital and content marketing initiatives led by a revitalisation of australia.com that will provide an enhanced online Australian tourism experience for consumers. Tourism Australia s digital and social marketing emphasis will be to personalise, socialise and mobilise content to make it more relevant and timely by using data and analytics. Digital and social media channels are an important area to gain competitive advantage for Australian tourism. Consumers use of these channels to research, plan, book and share holiday experiences is significant and will continue to grow.
