Bellingen Shire Council in partnership with Destination Coffs Coast and Dorrigo Chamber of Commerce will host a tourism industry event on Saturday February 24 at the Old Gazette Theatre in Hickory Street Dorrigo.

The event highlights the importance of cultural tourism and brings creatives and tourism operators together.

The programme includes a panel discussion featuring representatives from Screenwave International Film Festival, Camp Creative, Bello Winter Music Festival and Urunga Chamber of Commerce.

“Those attending will benefit from insights delivered by panel members on how events, festivals and cultural tourism can be a key driver of the tourism industry and provide economic benefits for our shire,” said Michael Grieve, Council’s Economic and Business Development Manager.

True to the theme, the event will showcase some local talent as well as providing a great networking opportunity for both the creative and tourism industries.

Anyone involved in either industry is encouraged to participate.

Please email paradise@coffscoast.com.au by 19 February if you would like to attend.
