If you missed out on participating in Tourism Future 14 you missed an amazing and inspirational event!  Businesses that now recognise the endless tourism potential of our beautiful wilderness coast were there from all over the Shire and beyond to learn and network amongst like-minded businesses, developing partnerships and bundling their businesses for even greater reach.

Sapphire Coast Tourism showcased the many many new business opportunities in this region at the Tourism Summit held over the last week at several venues across the Shire. Guest speakers from Canberra Airport (wow!), Carnival Cruises (inc. P&O), Bob Wood Cruise Group, Tourism Australia, Destination NSW and a number of business owners who have tapped into the new ‘experience seeker’ visitor market with great success.

Anyone wanting help with developing new tourism businesses to meet the demand of growing visitor numbers is urged to contact Bega Valley Shire Council’s Business Growth Co-ordinator Bob McAlister, who can help you work your way through the processes required to start your business successfully.
