The October 22 session (6.30pm- 8.00pm) will explore the Tourism sector’s strategic response. The two guest speakers will be Graeme Osborne, chief executive of Tourism Auckland and George Hickton CEO of Tourism NZ will be guest panelists along with Rod Oram as Chair, Dr Ken Simpson along with business students Tonya Wright and Sven Damm.

Please come along and ask our panel questions. If you aren’t able to be there send us a question via twitter using the hashtag #UnitecFTF and follow the discussion on twitter @UnitecFTF

The venue is Unitec Performing and Screen Arts, Theatre , Building 6, Entry 1, Carrington Road. The shortened map URI is Entry Gate 1 is near the Pt Chev end of Carrington Road.

It would pay to be early as this is the 3rd session of 3 and that would give you time to get your video and TV face ready (only kidding.)  Each programme will be filmed and edited for the web by students from Unitec’s Department of Screen and Performing Arts.
