Visitor Information Centres

Visitor Information Centres (VICs) enhance the visitor experience and play a role in encouraging visitors to stay longer in the region allowing for greater dispersal and repeat visitation.

The statewide network of accredited VICs forms an integral component of the tourism industry and acts as a valuable distribution network for the range of experiences that are on offer throughout South Australia. 
The VIC Accreditation program is designed to provide the consumer with a consistent and recognised level of customer service throughout South Australia. It is based on quality assurance principles and is aligned to the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program.  The program provides consumers and the industry with an assurance that an accredited VIC is committed to quality business practices and professionalism.
This is achieved by the development of professional management systems that will lead to reliability, consistency and predictability in the operation of the business that results in improved customer service and satisfaction.
SATIC delivers the Visitor Information Centre Accreditation in South Australia.
