The plan also identified key priorities for Victoria's tourism regions.
A Regional Industry Reference Group was established to help consolidate the final direction of the plan. This group has ongoing role in providing feedback and reviewing the plan to ensure actions remain relevant.
Tourism Victoria has also identified a range of performance measures to monitor progress against the plan. Specific regional targets were determined and assessed on an annual basis in consultation with the Regional Tourism Boards and Regional Campaign Committees.
