Investment in Marketing creates accommodation industry jobs
The accommodation industry is set to benefit from the tourism marketing initiative which has seen many London taxis transformed into mini, moving billboards promoting Australia and the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
The industry welcomes the initiative which comes as new figures are released which show strong growth in the number of international visitors to Australia.
"The Accommodation Association supports the latest efforts by Minister Ciobo to raise awareness about Australia as an international visitor destination in London," said the Association's Chief Executive Officer, Richard Munro. "The battle to capture more of the international visitor market in a place like London is very intense, with the easy and cheaper decision for many consumers in the UK being a short trip to continental Europe or to the United States, both of which are a relatively short flight from London.

Record spending in tourism exceeding $100 billion - creating Australian jobs
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Steven Ciobo, says spending by international and domestic visitors grew by $5.6 billion last year, with spending by Australian and international tourists exceeding $100 billion for the first time.
The National Visitor Survey for the year ending December 2016 shows Australian visitors spent $61 billion. Minister Ciobo says 'the recently released International Visitor Survey showed international visitors spent $39.1 billion in the same 12 month period.
This record spending is creating Australian jobs. Tourism is a $120 billion industry that employs around 1 in 12 Australians, so this growth in holiday spending means more jobs, more investment and more prosperity for all Australians, especially those in regional Australia, where 45 per cent of tourist dollars are spent."
