Following the success of two further and final RV Industry Workshops presented by the Australian Caravan Club (ACC) yesterday for the Liverpool Plains Shire business community, the workshops have been proclaimed as the strengthening of the relationship between businesses on the Liverpool Plains and RVers visiting the area, by ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey.
The final two RV Industry Workshops held at Quirindi Racecourse yesterday morning, and at Spring Ridge Community Hall last night, complemented the first workshop held on Tuesday night.
“When the Liverpool Plains Shire Council invited the ACC to present an RV-Friendly Business Seminar aimed at local business and the community and focussing on how to capture the burgeoning RV market, we welcomed the opportunity,” said Mr Humphrey. “Over 24 and 25 January, we have presented three workshops.”
“I can only describe the workshops as nothing less than the strengthening of the relationship between businesses on the Liverpool Plains and RVers visiting the area.”
“In fact, the workshops proved far more successful than we, the ACC, ever imagined they would be.”
The workshops commenced with a presentation with discussion topics including awareness-raising of the value of the RV industry to regional communities, how communities and individual businesses can encourage RVers to visit, and opportunities for business to access the burgeoning RV market.
“The workshops were professionally presented, and a number of our club members put in a tremendous effort to ensure their success.”
“On behalf of our club, I take this opportunity to thank our deputy chairman Tom Smith, club director Graham Christie, and club official John Snell from our Policy and Town Support Committee for what can only be described as excellent work in developing and presenting these workshops. Some of our presenters had to travel hundreds of kilometres to the Liverpool Plains.”
“Their spouses Sandra, Kaye and Kathy must also be thanked for their support.”
On completion of the Spring Ridge seminar last night, deputy chairman Tom Smith said, “The Spring Ridge community were particularly interested in ways of encouraging RVers to spend more time at their freedom camp. The longer RVers stay, the more RVers will spend economically supporting local businesses.”
“Following the success of the Liverpool Plains RV Industry Workshops, the ACC is happy to engage in discussions with other local authorities about undertaking similar presentations to their businesses and local community,” Mr Humphrey said.
