Webinar | Events and Festivals – Essential to the Economic Reboot

28 July@12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


With borders closed to international visitors, but mostly open to Australians travelling for leisure, festivals and events are an essential ingredient for an economic boost. Whether your council is looking to reboot the local economy, brand a region, target a demographic or highlight local assets, you can develop a headline grabbing program or partner with a leading festival to make a positive impact.

Festivals and Cultural Events were quoted as the reason 57% of Australians visited a town for the first time, a statistic that stands to increase. So how can you Reboot Right and maximise local opportunity when these important social gatherings are again allowed to operate? Learn the value of a Festival to the Visitor Economy with the Australian Festivals Association, and how councils can collaborate with stakeholders to become part of a $2.7bn industry.
