Victorian State Culinary Tourism Conference in Wangaratta

Friday 3 October 2008

Strategic Futurist Marcus Barber will be kicking off proceedings at the 2008 Regional Produce Summit in Wangaratta on the 20th of October where he'll detail some of the emerging issues likely to impact upon the tourism and food sector in the foreseeable future and suggest ways that businesses in the sector might be able to take advantage of some of the opportunities that are appearing on the horizon
