Coffs’ strategy to keep winning big events

A NEW draft events strategy designed to cement Coffs Harbour's status as one of Australia's premier event-friendly cities is going out for public comment next week.

Last year, Coffs Harbour won a globally acclaimed International Festivals and Events Association World Festival and Event City Award, gaining recognition alongside major cities around the world.

"That award was fantastic recognition for the amazing work the community achieves by working together to attract and successfully run a huge range of major events and community festivals," Mayor Denise Knight said.

"The partnership we have with the business and wider community, as well as our event partners, has been critical to the success of the events we regularly host.

"This new strategy aims to build on that partnership to reinforce Coffs Harbour's well-deserved reputation as the mid-north coast's regional event capital."

The Draft Coffs Harbour Events Strategy 2020 aims to attract, grow and retain events in Coffs Harbour.

It will be on public exhibition for 28 days from Wednesday, April 20, until Tuesday, May 17.
