The Sunshine Coast Events Network (scene) continues to support the region’s events industry by announcing two free workshops to be held in May and June 2014.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the scene program is a Sunshine Coast Council initiative aimed at supporting and developing the region’s events industry.

scene  aims to strengthen the quality and grow the diversity of events, increase job opportunities within the industry and provide a forum for discussion and innovation,” Cr McKay said.

“The first free workshop to be held at 3pm on Wednesday May, 28 presents events guru Liz Rivers, speaking on experiential marketing to engage customers as part of the Sunshine Coast Business Expo at TAFE Mooloolaba.

“Ms Rivers will share how to host creative and successful business events that will save you money, meet your marketing needs, engage with customers and provide your desired return on investment.

“Tickets are available via the Sunshine Coast Business Expo website.”

Cr McKay encouraged people to head to Lake Kawana Community Centre on June 11 for the second free workshop and learn all there is to know about crowdfunding.

“Crowdfunding has been used to successfully raise funds for all sorts of projects - charitable causes, creative endeavours, community projects, and much more,” Cr McKay said.

“We are extremely fortunate as crowdfunding expert and founder of iPledg, Bryan Vadas, is coming to the Sunshine Coast exclusively for scene. Tickets are free and are available now on the scene page of council’s website. “

These workshops are free to anyone interested in events to attend.
