Plan Your Event Hunter

If you're a local Hunter Valley Business offering event services or a venue, we want to collaborate with you.

Plan your Event Hunter will be a showcase of everything you need to pull off the perfect event. It will be great for locals to ensure we spend our event money close to home, but primarily targeted at encouraging people from Greater Sydney, the Central Coast and Newcastle to make the most of our locations and resources. 

By banding together, micro, small and medium sized vendors can put forward a strong, competitive offering to attract a more diverse range of group events, especially to fill in those mid week trade gaps!


Currently, weddings, concerts and some high-end events are being held in the Hunter Valley in reasonable volume, but smaller events such as conferences, workshops, team building activities, school and sporting group events, along with larger multi family events are sitting well below the region's potential. 

Leveraging the accumulative knowledge, experience, creativity and expertise of our local businesses, we hope to attract a large customer base with great profits for everyone. Together, the Hunter Valley’s small tourism and event businesses can be stronger, achieve greater digital reach, stronger SEO, and some lucrative outcomes. 

Imagine if your business could bring in 30% more profit, simply by achieving mid-week trade.

Plan Your Event Hunter is currently free for vendors and venues! The concept is being funded by Powerful Perceptions and Cessnock City Council
