Blue Mountains Tourism

Ms Kanzora’s engagement is the first step for Blue Mountains Tourism towards investing the $2.6 million Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Funding announced in July.

Jointly funded by the Federal and State governments, the grant was announced in July and will involve destination branding, marketing, website development, major events, industry communications and a business resilience program.


Beginning her marketing career at Price Waterhouse Coopers in Chicago in 1996, Ms Kanzora most recently promoted Cirque du Soleil's KOOZA Australian tour and the Van Gogh Alive exhibition in Sydney in 2020.


Before that, she promoted the King Kong musical on Broadway, Moulin Rouge! the Musical world premiere in Boston and on Broadway and Muriel's Wedding the Musical Australian tour.

She also promoted EMPIRE North American Tour, Radio City Christmas Spectacular in Madison Square Garden, and 10 productions for Blue Man Group in New York City promoting shows in America, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Berlin, Tokyo and other global productions.


As well as meeting local tourism businesses and exploring the region, one of Ms Kanzora’s first tasks will be to plan two major events, the first of which will probably be held in 2022.
