Skal Queenstown Panel Discussion
For the first time the Skal International Queenstown hosted a panel discussion last evening (4th July), forming part of their regular club meetings.
The discussion topic “The Queenstown Visitor Mix in 10 Years’ Time.”
Taking on this topic were three panellist:
Tim Hunter, CEO Southern Discoveries
Colin Keel, CEO of Queenstown Airport Corporation
Penny Clark, Director of Upstairs 4 Hospitality and Queenstown Lakes District Council.
They were facilitated by former Radio New Zealand journalist Steve Wilde, who has been living in Queenstown for 20 years.
The discussion was certainly lively, engaging the 30 strong audience with their own questions and comments about the future of Queenstown.
The event was sponsored by Southern Discoveries and hosted by the QT Hotel.
The panel discussion is part of a deliberate strategy by Skal International Queenstown to add variety to their functions. The Club is also in a membership growth phase. Last night at least four of the invited industry guests signed up to become members of the club.
