$10 million boost for visitor economy digital super hub

Platform will allow employers, workers, students & international visitors to connect to education, employment & other career information

Accommodation Australia’s project to create a one-stop digital hub for hospitality, tourism and travel is full steam ahead following a $10 million federal government grant and the appointment of a new Project Manager.

Accommodation Australia CEO Michael Johnson said the Association executed a $10 million grant with Austrade last week to develop and promote the platform over the next three years and beyond. 

He said well-respected manager James Lawton has been hired to spearhead the project. “The employment platform will be a one-stop shop for people across the visitor economy in the hospitality, tourism and travel sectors,” said Mr Johnson.  

“It will allow employers, existing and prospective workers, students and international visitors to connect to education, employment and other vital career information.

“This will help with our two biggest challenges by boosting the hospitality, tourism and travel workforce and promoting careers in the industry for the next generations to come.

“Now we have received the grant and appointed James as project manager we are all systems go.

“I would like to acknowledge and thank the Australian Government for their funding and support of the project and welcome James to this exciting role,” Mr Johnson said.
