We developed a festival of food celebrating all things Sunshine Coast through a brimming program that included collaborations between local producers, suppliers and businesses who came together to tell their stories not only through food but experiences. 

We invested in four signature events that heroed our program, engaged with well known local chefs and special guests and drove awareness through; social, video, and PR. A successful 10 day event with over 9,700 tickets sold. Integration of TEQ and VSC destination content encouraging attendees to extend their stay and enjoy Sunshine Coast.
