The Board of Yarra Ranges Tourism invites you to attend our annual reporting and networking day. Our last summit was back in 2019 so it will be terrific to see you in person once again.

A full day of events starting with a Cultural Capability Session, Trade Partners showcase, networking lunch, then an afternoon of presentations followed by post summit drinks.

The goal of this forum is to get our industry back together and think about the key issues and opportunities we all need to consider to create success in our tourism businesses for the year ahead.

We are thrilled to announce our guest speakers for this year

Our keynote speaker will be Susannah George, Founder and CEO, The Urban List.
