Local Team: Australia

Australia B2B Approach

VisitBritain is the national tourist board for Great Britain with the remit to promote Britain to potential visitors in a modern and appealing way.

Our travel trade strategy in Australia is to work with key intermediaries to generate incremental visitors, more often, travelling across the nations (England, Wales & Scotland) and regions of Britain, spending more money.

To achieve this, VisitBritain will:

  1. Work with industry partners to leverage reach and value to the key segments of Explorers and Buzzseekers.
  2. Bring relevant new product experiences to market
  3. Ensure the most relevant destination content is available

Mark Haynes is the B2B Manager of Australia and New Zealand. To get in contact, please email him at: Mark.Haynes@visitbritain.org
