We connect our members to opportunities that are more accessible through collaboration
Why become a member?
COLLABORATE & BUILD YOUR NETWORK
at our quarterly Industry Events.
These seasonal events bring together growers, suppliers, tourism operators, business owners, chefs and everyone in between to connect and collaborate in preparation for the quarter ahead. Destination Tweed invites prominent keynote speakers to share their knowledge and discuss insights into upcoming food and agritourism trends.
Want something specific grown for next season’s menu? Struggling to find a good local printer for your collateral? Want to connect and share ideas with other operators in your industry? Want to launch a new product to your peers? These events are for you.
CONNECT WITH LOCALS AND VISITORS
at the Tweed Artisan Food Weekends
This landmark event happens twice a year – March and October. The program is full of amazing, bespoke consumer experiences from our membership base. Many unique collaborations are formed in the creation of these experiences. A platform for members to test-run a concept that may lead to an on-going event or experience.
PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS
through digital marketing and word-of-mouth
We have over 18k followers on social media, 1,000 engaged members on our email database and a 80+ membership base of passionate word-of-mouth advocates. Tell us your news and we’ll shout about it to everyone who listens!
SELL DIRECT TO THE PUBLIC
at our regular market stall
We host a stall at the Tweed Farmers Market on the first Saturday of every month. Have a new product you want to test with the market? Or an existing range that you’d like us to sell on your behalf?
HAVE AN INDUSTRY ADVOCATE
by tapping into our expertise
With decades of experience working with council, LTOs and other regional stakeholders, Destination Tweed will support you if you need a contact from council, an introduction to a stakeholder, or want to drive industry change.
Shape the future of the tweed
through connecting with like-minded people
And agencies who share our vision to sustainably develop and grow our region. On your behalf, we attend Council workshops, industry events and collaborate with other local organisations (ie. Northern Rivers Food, Destination North Coast, Destination Byron, Young Farmers Connect, local Chambers, Tweed Tourism Co.) to ensure initiatives and information can be dispersed.
