To develop a co-designed plan we need to hear from our members and the visitor industry, the Queenstown Lakes community, and stakeholders.

This will be a collaborative effort to ensure the tourism industry evolves in a way that puts people and place at its centre and enables a viable and regenerative tourism future by 2030.

We are encouraging people to get involved in different ways, through interviews and focused group discussions. There will also be a more creative and interactive process to help pinpoint current issues and imagine new pathways towards a regenerative tourism future. To oversee this, from planning to implementation, is an independent Industry Leaders Advisory Board

How you can get involved

Thank you to everyone who came along to the community idea gathering events in early July and August. Your insights and ideas have been appreciated and will help shape the draft plan. There will be additional opportunities for you to provide feedback.

The first of these is at the WAO Summit 26-31 October 2021 where you are invited attend some of the panel discussions and sessions being held, or alternatively pop in to the Lake Wānaka Community Centre and see where the plan is at and have your say.
