How to gain Maximum benefit Following the millennium drought and the recent downturn in manufacturing in Australia with the inevitable job losses in that sector, many regional towns are looking to the ‘visitor economy’ to strengthen their local economies. Deniliquin is one such town, in the Southern Riverina, which has been successful in attracting large numbers of visitors through presentation of events like ‘The Deni Ute Muster’, The Deni Blues and Roots Festival’ and the ‘Deni Fishing Classic’. These festivals contribute over $22 million each year to the local and regional economy. To gain maximum benefit from Festivals and Events it is vital that communities; 1. Identify a unique experience or event 2. Get whole of community support 3. Develop a Strategic Plan 4. Identify the target market and ensure that it is of sufficient size for the event to be sustainable. 5. Identify how you are going to engage with the market. 6. Encourage volunteerism in your community. 7. Start at a size you can manage, develop a program of continuous improvement and grow the event at a manageable rate
