Refugees have always been an emotional topic around the world and especially today as Europe is experiencing large movements of refugees throughout the continent. The issue, usually, is that the governments are overwhelmed with attempts to integrate those refugees properly, and sadly, many of them do not receive a warm welcome upon arrival.

Since the travel and tourism industry deals with both hospitality and the movement of people, our industry is very well suited to support refugees.

Travindy has collected “15 Ways Tourism Can Help Refugees,” which was developed by looking at good practices done by tourism enterprises, and which can be continuously developed.

Comments Off on Support Provision for Victorian Tourism Businesses: Enhancement of Service Skills and Professional Standards

The project was motivated by Tourism Victoria’s commitment to enhancing the service skills and professional standards of tourism businesses in Victoria and in particular to target those who may be underperforming. The project addresses the issue of professionalism and standards in the tourism industry and the concern that some operators, who are performing at a sub-standard level, are affecting the reputation of regional areas and Victoria as a tourism destination. To identify performance development issues and the relatively poor take up of support offerings, a study of both support providers and tourism operators was undertaken.
