If you have a tourism-related product or tourism investment project for Braidwood and Villages that you are keen to get off the ground, now is your chance to pitch your idea. Up to five tourism or investment projects will be selected to be worked on or progressed.
Braidwood and Villages Business Chamber (BAVBC) supported by Australian Business Volunteers (ABV) and Enterprise Plus, will be hosting a Tourism Product Development Workshop on Friday the 9th of February.
We are inviting community members, groups, and businesses to pitch their tourism-related product or tourism investment project. The panel are looking for new products, catalyst projects, or business ideas to support in seven categories: agri tourism; nature tourism; heritage tourism; visitor information, technology and knowledge services; local area/street improvement projects; and creative and cultural tourism.
This is an incredible opportunity to have a coordinated focus on your idea. Our Reference Panel is ready to work on this with you. Simply apply on the link below.
Three to five pitches will be selected to attend the workshop where under the guidance of our experts, will work towards creating a comprehensive project concept and compelling funding proposal. Our aim is to identify and develop the projects in sufficient detail to assist the project in securing funding and resources needed for implementation in the next 12 months. A list of criteria is included with the application form.
The Reference Panel includes members of the Braidwood and Villages Tourism and Investment working group, QPRC, Braidwood and Villages Tourism, Enterprise Plus, Braidwood Community Association, and other invited guests including ABV Volunteer Professor Brian Roberts (Emeritus Professor of Urban and Regional Economic Development) with extensive international experience in over 30 countries, and from the University of Canberra, Associate Professor Brian Weir specialising in Tourism and Events.
The community has been working on a vision for our local area for some time which identified the need for coordinated tourism initiatives. As the Braidwood and Villages Destination Management Plan formalises and develops, you can expect more of these kinds of workshops, as we aim to provide the tools to develop the Braidwood and Villages business community to its full potential.
Pitch applications will be received until Monday 5th February, 9am AEDT via the below link. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C37TG3T
Successful applicants will be invited to attend the event to explain their idea.
The workshop will be held Friday 9th February and will include lunch and morning team.
