The Hospitality and Tourism Industry is the largest and fastest growing industry in the world.
The world’s population is increasingly mobile, with many consequences for businesses, individuals and their environments. Travel – whether for business or pleasure – and its growing influence on the global economy, has led to tourism management being one of the most popular fields of study in Higher Education.
Tourism is a significant industry for Australia. It generates $107 billion in consumption, directly employs around half a million Australians and is Australia’s number one services export. It helps fund critical infrastructure like airports, roads and hotels and plays an important role in the economic development of regional Australia with 45 cents in every tourist dollar spent in regional Australia. Every dollar spent on tourism generates 91 cents in other parts of the economy which is a higher multiplier than those achieved for mining, agriculture and financial services.*
