Leaders from the Queensland Government and Industry Leaders from across Queensland will descend on Noosa for this incredibly important Tourism Forum".

"Tourism Noosa will be working closely with the Queensland Government, Tourism and Events Queensland and Sunshine Coast Destination Limited to support the event and look forward to providing a warm Welcome to Noosa to the Queensland Premier, all State Ministers and Industry attending DestinationQ.

"I'd like to thank the Queensland Government and Minister Stuckey for choosing the Sunshine Coast and in particular Noosa to host this most important forum".

Registrations for the 2014 DestinationQ forum are expected to open in early May.
