Events Unit

Whether it is home-grown events or major one-off internationals, events in general have the capacity to showcase our people and places on a global stage.

Events can drive visitor numbers, generate increased spend and also provide platforms for the visitor to interact with the local culture, local people and explore our scenic landscapes and cities.
