A workshop conducted by the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) that will be held in Kingaroy next month has won the support of the South Burnett Regional Council and the Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce.
The workshop will show South Burnett businesses have they can benefit from recreational vehicle (RV) travellers, and how they can help grow RV tourism in the region.
“This workshop will focus on many topics including the economic benefits that can be gained by local businesses from catering to the needs of the RV traveller, how to engage with RVers, how to encourage RVers to visit, and opportunities to access the growing RV community,” ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said.
“Our Club’s Deputy Chairman Tom Smith, and John Snell from our Policy, Advocacy and Town Support team will be conducting the seminars and speaking on issues relevant to these topics.
“We consider this workshop will prove to be beneficial not just to local businesses in the South Burnett, but also to RVers as their wants and needs are met. This is a win-win situation for everyone.”
Mayor Keith Campbell welcomed the RV Industry Workshop initiative.
“Over the past ten years our region has been gratified to see a steady increase of caravan clubs and
RVers travelling through and staying in the South Burnett.
“By providing local businesses with this industry workshop, it can only increase our tourism profile and the end result is to get the word out there that the South Burnett Region is a must when travelling around Queensland and Australia.”
Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce President Rob Fitz-Herbert encouraged all local businesses in the region to attend the workshop and find out how to make the South Burnett Region a must visit venue for RVers.
The free workshop will be held at the Kingaroy Town Hall Reception Room in Glendon Street on Tuesday, September 5 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
South Burnett businesses who’d like to attend should contact the Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce by email to reserve seats.
