Council has resolved to establish a Joint Tourism Services Agreement between the Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre and the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association.
The unified service will be better equipped to market and promote the Hunter Valley tourism brand and offer visitors to our region a more seamless visitor experience.
Under the agreement, a number of Hunter Valley Visitor Information Centre tourism fees (outlined below) will be replaced by a tourism membership administrated by the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association.
Council intends to remove the following tourism fees:
a) Fee For Service – Silver Deal
b) Fee For Service – Gold Deal
c) Fee For Service – Diamond Deal
d) Fee For Service for Community – Not for Profit
e) Visitor Guide and Map listing
f) Fee For Service – Additional Brochure
g) Early bird incentives
h) Sequential Fee For Service: Multi packages
i) Accommodation and Activity Bookings Commission
The removal of tourism fees is on public exhibition and we’re seeking your comments.
