Program aiming to boost visitation

Two Wagga conferences awarded development funds

The 8point8 Regional Innovation and Small Business Conference, and Grain Growers Innovation Generation, are two of the first regional conferences to be awarded state government funding, under a new program.

Local MP Daryl Maguire has announced $40,000 for 8point8, and $20,000 for Grain Growers, to attract more business event visitors to Wagga, and boost the region’s tourism industry.

The money comes from the Regional Conferencing Development Grants program, aiming to help the government reach its goal of doubling overnight visitor expenditure to NSW by 2020.
