Destination North Coast was named best Regional Destination Marketing Organisation or Bureau at the 2019 MEA State and National Awards.
“It is fair to say that the North Coast has suffered a number of setbacks in the last 12 months with drought, bushfires, floods and COVID,” said general manager Michael Thurston.
“Despite all this, demand for our destinations has remained strong demonstrating the diversity of experiences, enviable climate, natural landscapes and colourful communities that our region offers.
“These assets have proven to be instrumental in the success of our Business Events program as they have assisted in differentiating the conference experience on the North Coast to those held in metro areas.
“We are delighted to have received this award as a testimony to the hard work put in by our team, the support from Destination NSW, and most importantly our fabulous stakeholders throughout the North Coast who deliver first class service and unforgettable events.”
