How do we balance visitor growth with the needs of our local community and prized environment?
What are the options for resort towns like ours to avoid “being loved to death”? 

Two experts from the University of Otago’s Tourism Department offer some possible options for the future of Queenstown tourism at this Catalyst talk.

Associate Professor Brent Lovelock argues that to remain competitive, we need to be sustainable. What does this mean in practical terms for our tourism industry and for the well-being of our community and environment?

Dr Susan Houge Mackenzie asks if a bioregional approach - where visitors are encouraged to make a deeper connection with a more localised area, rather than traveling far and wide - might help us mitigate some of tourism’s negative impacts?

Q & A session will follow.
