Export Ready Industry Support
Industry Development Program 2022
A major project for Destination Sydney Surrounds South (DSSS), the Export Ready Industry Development Program initially commenced in 2019 with planned engagement with Destination NSW (DNSW) to conduct international media visits, as well as research development. However, due to the bushfires and COVID this project was paused.
DSSS worked closely with DNSW to ensure the rescoped project aligns to the original intention whilst driving industry development and building on the opportunities as the international market returns. DSSS has also consulted with both Destination Wollongong and Shoalhaven Tourism, two significant destinations in the region for international markets.
This project has synergies and potential benefits for the greater NSW South Coast region.
To maximise this and ultimately the visitor experience, DSSS is collaborating with Destination Southern NSW.
Sparrowly Group, specialist tourism and industry development experts have been appointed to deliver the project.
