The Tourism and Major Events Levy is administered by Sunshine Coast Council. Funds are directed to marketing of the region, major events and the operation of Visitor Information Centres. As a levy payer, you will still benefit from the activity that Visit Sunshine Coast delivers. However, as a member, you will be able to directly advertise your business and leverage from Visit Sunshine Coast’s promotional activity.
Member fees will be used to deliver national and international marketing activity , operate the membership program and to facilitate industry development programs.
I am already a member of a local tourism body or chamber of commerce, why should I also join Visit Sunshine Coast?
Federal and State tourism bodies such as Tourism Australia and Tourism and Events Queensland deal directly with VSC as the region’s official tourism organisation, and this then provides opportunities for local tourism bodies. This means that membership of Visit Sunshine Coast provides you with an exclusive channel for maximising your business opportunities. In 2018/2019, VSC will continue to build all categories of tourism through enhanced digital, niche and traditional marketing, as well as increased consumer and trade PR, and strong partnership marketing.
What level of membership is recommended if my business is both Trade & International and Business Events oriented?
At the Premium Level you will receive benefits covering both sectors.
