Develop an events-based communications strategy that would:

2. Increase visitation in off-peak periods as well as promote 5x specific events
3. Drive bookings (ferries, accommodation and tours)
The creative tagline “Straddie IS” was a lovely play on words, allowing us to bring the Brisbane-based audience into the notion that the island ‘is’ so close.
Create an overarching destination campaign with an events-based communication strategy to motivate (primarily) Brisbane residents to visit North Stradbroke Island either for a short break or day trip.
