Visual Merchandising Training


Friday Oct 5 6pm – 8pm, Hendo’s Cafe, Bairnsdale. Register now, details below…

Spring is here! And with it, three major sporting events will bring visitors to Bairnsdale in the lead-up to Christmas.

The City will host the Simon Anderson Consultants 2018 Masters Road National Championships, the Barry Sheene Tribute Ride and the Bairnsdale Racing Club Spring Carnival.

Why is sports tourism important to you?

The average spend through ‘sports tourism’ is $265 per person per day. This is good for business and it’s good for Bairnsdale.

All Bairnsdale traders are invited to attend FREE visual merchandise training, sponsored by the East Gippsland Shire Council, in association with Bairnsdale Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Federation Training and Paynesville Neighbourhood Centre.

Learn new ways to:

• Design and style visual merchandising and promote local events to increase consumer spend.
• Collaborate with other traders to encourage shoppers to buy local instead of online.
• Enhance community spirit to continue to make Bairnsdale a vibrant town.
• Develop a shared vision for lifting Bairnsdale’s festive spirit in the lead-up to Christmas.
And learn the financial benefits of bringing more customers to our region.
