Join us for this public forum to hear Dr Gabby Walters, who is a world-renowned expert and author in tourism crisis recovery, share her experiences on tourism industry recovery following events such as fire. Gabby will discuss recovery trajectories, tourists’ responses, industry responses and strategies that have assisted tourism regions and businesses to recover following crisis events.

Dr Gabby Walters is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland. Her primary research interests revolve around tourism marketing communications, tourist behaviour and tourism crisis recovery.

The evening will be chaired by Associate Professor Anne Hardy, Co-Director of the Tourism Research and Education Network (TRENd).
