TIA is a joint venture initiative between Susan Lee Director CVC  and  Martin Pike Director KSM both long-term professional advisors throughout regional Australia.

We facilitate investment into regional campgrounds and accommodation for landowners across Australia. Our job is to develop comprehensive and tailored strategies to secure stakeholder and financial support for tourism investment to the benefit of regional communities and private landholders. We help build a business case for investment, assist with securing funding and oversee the project through to site activation. This includes product development to win contracts and start trading. We know leisure markets buy more than a bed night in regions, they want experiences, things to do and see, so we focus on product development to make sure investment, and returns, are maximised.

We are passionate about regional Australia and supporting suitable use of land across all levels including commercial, cultural, social, and environmental. We apply a destination development approach including trail, interpretation, and shelter design to encourage and manage day users and self-drive markets, particularly in remote areas. 

who we help

We help landowners and stakeholders participate in the tourism accommodation sector through the ethical and appropriate use of their land. We work on greenfield sites as well as redevelopment of existing facilities. We have worked with Indigenous clients and Corporations, private investors, not for profits, National Parks and local governments.

HOW WE WORK 

We offer a turnkey, staged approach to tourism infrastructure development.

  1. Site Review - we assess the site with clients and advise on tourism access and visitor use
  2. Feasibility - we determine viability with market demand research and capability assessment, and design a site concept plan to help with communication
  3. Business Planning - we nut out the core tourism experience, product marketing and operational plan, forward profit and loss, people and capital needs
  4. Funding Plan - we develop a plan to fund the capital project in a timely way and demonstrate feasibility before any trades are engaged.
  5. Project Management - we support you to advise contractors and builders to ensure you don't overinvest
