Deliver destination marketing in partnership with industry

Central Coast Council is committed to investment in tourism for the region. Tourism is most successful when there is collaboration among the private sector, industry interests and government.  We recognise that a focussed approach is required to drive economic returns for the Central Coast region and that is why we are seeking to engage an organisation to deliver destination marketing in close collaboration with the industry.
 
The scope of the services includes delivery of a three year marketing strategy, execution of marketing and promotional activities, delivery of industry services and generating partnerships.
