FRDL Update February 2015

3rd March 2015


February has been a very busy time for the Foundation for Regional Development. In this newsletter:
  1. Regional Relocation Survey - largest relocation survey to be undertaken in NSW
  2. at the Royal Easter Show - exhibit with us or come see us
  3. Building Regional Australia Summit - updated information.

Regional Relocation Survey

After discussion with the Department of Trade & Investment, the Foundation has been commissioned by the department to conduct a survey designed to monitor the trends of people's movements from Sydney.

This will be the largest relocation survey ever conducted in NSW and will give the State Government valuable insight into why people relocate to certain areas.

FRDL has been funded to complete the survey in partnership with the University of New England. We will keep you posted on the survey's progress and look forward to reporting the results.

The website has been live for 3 months (see Progress Statistics to the right) and will be attending the Sydney Royal Easter Show. We would like to invite your organisation to exhibit with us on our prominent stand in the Home, Garden & Lifestyle Pavilion. 
It is a great opportunity to:

  • Market your community at Australia's largest annual event
  • Attend for 3 days at a time so your staff are not having to operate on a stand for 12 days 8.30am till 8.30pm
  • Conduct your own market research to the attendees
  • Provide a whole panel of display space to show your visual community
  • Hand out material
  • Gather leads of people who may be interested in relocating or investing
  • Operate on a stand that will draw attention due to its branding and positioning
  • Choose your days to be rostered so you have greater power over staffing
  • Another chance to raise awareness of the Expo so people can look for us closer to August (CountryNSW Expo)
Visit the website for more information to Exhibit or attend and contact us if you are interested
