GetAboutAble is thrilled to announce our partnership with Victoria Tourism Industry Council. Accessibility and inclusivity are at the core of the 5 key pillars of the State Government’s Experience Victoria 2033 Strategy.

As Felicia Mariani, CEO of VTIC puts it: “People travelling with accessibility needs already represent over $13 billion in revenue for our national visitor economy. As this market grows in the coming years, so too will the value to our sector. It’s imperative that Victoria is seen as leaders in catering for the accessibility requirements of our visitors and works to prepare the industry to cater for this important market.

They welcome events of all shapes and sizes, from meetings and conferences to exhibitions, concerts and galas, whether in-person, virtual or hybrid. And their city is their inspiration.
