Tourism Funding Boost For NSW North Coast

Published on : Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Destination NSWPremier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall were in Lismore to make the announcement and said the NSW Government is doing everything it can to assist the North Coast tourism industry following the devastating floods in March.

 

“After consulting with our key industry stakeholders and listening to their concerns, I’m very pleased to announce the NSW Government will be delivering a Flood Recovery Support Program,” Ms Berejilklian said.

 

“It’s important we send a clear message that the North Coast is open for business.”

 

Mr Marshall said the NSW Government’s campaign was designed to have a significant impact on local tourism.

 

“The funding program will include new marketing initiatives, an extensive digital and social media program, media familiarisations as well as industry partnerships with HotelsCombined, Webjet, Stayz and National Geographic,” Mr Marshall said.

 

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest, who joined the Premier and Minister Marshall for today’s announcement, said the campaign will help grab the attention of those wanting to book a short break or longer holiday.

 

“Our region is back on its feet. We want to make sure that every bed in every hotel is on the bookings radar over the coming Spring period,” Mr Provest said.

 

Member for Lismore Thomas George said the Flood Recovery Support Program follows the announcement of the exclusive Barbarians Rugby match.

 

“With the Barbarians taking on a Classic Wallabies and National Rugby Championship select side this October, this event will provide a strong boost to the local economy and further showcase regional NSW’s number one destination,” he said.

 

The support and promotional package will run until September 2017.
