Business Events – Best Practice Session – Yamba 10 August 2023
The DNC team, in partnership with Clarence Valley Council presented a session on best practice for business events to key stakeholders in the beautiful township of Yamba on the 10th of August. This event was designed to support business owners in resetting to pre-Covid standards for management, sales and operations.

Feedback from this session has been positive and the team plan to run repeat sessions throughout the north coast to support the business events sector.

Our thanks goes out to Katee Blizzard and the Clarence Valley Council and Angourie Resort for demonstrating some real examples of best practice in Business Events.
