Regional NSW to score major conference boost | The Insight Files |

Regional conferences are warming up to the possibility of an extra $6 million funding from the government. NSW Deputy Premier, Troy Grant, has pledged the generous sum on behalf of his government, under the umbrella of Destination NSW, in order to develop a Regional Conference Strategy to co-exist with the tourism and hospitality industry. The strategy, set to be finalised by May this year, will create a new business units, whose aim will be to attract more business events to regional centres across the state. The strategy will help drive dollars into key towns across regional NSW, such as Tamworth, Armidale, Dubbo, Broken Hill and Bowral, which are all well placed to support conferences and business events with strong transport links and dedicated facilities.
