Tourism industry should cater for people with disabilities to build business

Tasmania’s Tourism Industry Council (TICT) sees huge potential for the state to better cater for travellers with disabilities.

Making the state’s attractions and businesses more accessible was a key topic at the Tasmanian Tourism Conference in Launceston.

TICT chief executive Luke Martin said he believed elderly and disabled travellers would become a significant, new travel market, as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was rolled out.
