Take the next step in sharing more about your tourism property
WHILE THE MARKET IS NARROW, GO DEEPER
We are all way too familiar with the reasons that business is tough right now.
Getting more people through the door is everyone's goal, and we can help you do that.
While the available market is narrow thanks to closed borders and other restrictions, the best way forward is to go as deep as you can with the market you do have access to.
The proportion of people in Australia who have accessibility needs is massive, and this market is generally not targetted by tourism operators.
The people who need to know more about your property is anyone with access needs, whether due to disability, age, accident or illness. Their needs may be temporary or permanent.
A few quick stats (that may surprise you!)
- Did you know that 36% of households in Australia include a person with disability?
- Or that nearly 20% (4.4 million) of Australians live with disability and less than 5% of them use a wheelchair?
- Plus, half of all people over 65 have a disability (that's 3.7 million people), and the many people in the other half will have some limitations.
