Remember the impact the Sydney Olympics had on tourism and hospitality in 2000.
Congratulations must go to Football Federation Australia FFA and New Zealand Football NZF, being awarded hosting rights for the largest women’s sporting event in the world.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, will provide an incredible boost to tourism for Australia and New Zealand, capturing the imagination globally for tourism and hospitality opportunities in Australasia after the widespread isolation of 2020.
32 teams and supporters from across the globe will be looking at our geographical isolation as a safe destination to be a part of the world cup, with the benefit of enjoying everything Australasia has to offer. Games will run for a month from 10 July to 10 August across 12 cities, including Sydney who will hold the final game, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Newcastle and Launceston as well as the games in New Zealand.
With an estimated 1.5 million fans attending the events live, plus global telecasting, the flow-on effect with Australia and New Zealand hospitality and tourism is expected to have a significant positive impact on our economies long term.
Now is the time for students to complete qualifications in hospitality and tourism as the country gears up to host this international event. Graduating students from The Hotel School will be in high demand for key positions as planning accelerates.
