QVM Annual Report Features Importance Of Tourism

The recently released QVM Annual Report covers many aspects of market operation but Specialty Merchandise traders will be pleased with the focus on tourism.

The report identifies QVM as the number one Melbourne destination for international tourists and states – “More than one in two international travellers to Melbourne visited our historic market during their trip. Tourists typically visit markets to experience the local culture around food buying, however their main economic value to the market is with the specialty merchandise traders.”

The report went on to say “ Significant progress has been achieved in building QVM into the formal tourism industry network to ensure long term growth from this important sector.”
