South West Sensations Showcase

Federal Member for Forrest Nola Marino is delighted to welcome the first 20 confirmed exhibitors and sponsors for her second South West Sensations as momentum grows ahead on the June 18 event.

The showcase raises the profile of the South West with our nation’s top policy and decision makers by taking industry and local produce exhibitors to Canberra.

“Our unique and wonderful natural tourist attractions along with our key business and industry, top food and wine are laid out on the national stage for ministers and departments in a one night, show stopping event,” Mrs Marino said.

“Planning is now well and truly underway for an even bigger and better showcase to return to Parliament House.”

The event has already received backing from South West Development Commission and Regional Development Australia.

Part of the showcase’s appeal is that local groups representing their businesses, industry and region have the chance to liaise directly and build relationships with key policy decision makers and industry groups.

For more information about the Showcase, including how to become involved, please call Mrs Marino’s office on 9725 2300.
