Visitor Experience Training (VXT) is a purpose-built organisation with one purpose – to train a hospitality and tourism workforce to deliver the Tasmanian experience. Head office is in Launceston, VXT offers an array of industry-led, outcome-focused training courses both online and around Tasmania.
The VXT Story
Courtesy of a $1 million grant from the Tasmanian Government, the shareholders Tasmanian Hospitality Association (THA) and the Tourism Industry Council Tasmania (TICT) jointly established a training company.
Initially launched as the ‘Tasmanian Hospitality and Tourism Training (THTT)’ the initiative was later renamed ‘Visitor Experience Training’, or as we like to be known – VXT. The new trading name reflects our multifaceted industry approach. Inspiration is drawn from the fundamental belief that every customer that enters our doors is a visitor, whether they be local regulars or interstate travellers. We want each and every one of them to have a truly Tasmanian experience.
VXT has one overriding purpose – to train a hospitality and tourism workforce to deliver the Tasmanian experience. The VXT, therefore, is an industry-led and outcome-focused operation.
