Our inaugural Business Expo took place on Saturday, 4th of March, 2017 at the historic James Theatre. It was a great success and left us with only one possible conclusion:
Dungog Shire is definitely open for business!
Congratulations and many thanks to the more than 50 businesses and organisations who participated in our Expo. What a fantastic display of enthusiasm, community spirit and collaboration you have showed!
We would also like to thank the more than 150 visitors who took the time to see what our business community has to offer and to show their interest and support.
The event was presented by the Dungog District Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with Dungog Shire Council and the Dungog Regional Tourism Inc. and sponsored by the NSW Department of Industry as part of “Back to Business Week”.
Dungog District Chamber of Commerce, Dungog Shire Council and Dungog Regional Tourism Inc. would like to thank especially:
Westwood Dungog Providores who provided a sausage sizzle for exhibitors and guests.
Allan Woo, Airlines and Partnerships Manager from Newcastle Airport who spoke about plans for expansion of the Newcastle Airport and the potential benefits for tourism in the Dungog Shire.
Dr Cameron Archer, Chair of the newly formed Dungog Regional Tourism Inc. who provided a brief update of progress

All those businesses and organisations who donated almost 20 very generous prizes including vouchers at local businesses, dinner and meal vouchers together with one and two night stay accommodation vouchers and a fabulous tablet donated by Telstra.
