What is SATIC?
SATIC is South Australia's peak tourism body, a non-government, independent organisation built on member input to represent and further the interest of our tourism industry.
Our role is to engage the tourism industry in all processes that shape our State's tourism future and to facilitate a positive business environment that brings our diverse industry together. We are your voice.
To engage, represent, strengthen and empower the South Australian tourism industry contributing to sustainable growth.
To be a strong and valued industry body representing members and actively contributing to the growth of profitable tourism businesses.
Why is being a SATIC member so important?
