Membership Benefits

An organisation’s strength and influence is determined by its size and representation. The stronger the organisation the more its voice will be heard by tourism boards, funding groups, regional councils and state governments.

Membership numbers provide funds for promotion and marketing. Thus the more members the stronger will be the marketing and promotional activity.

In an age of intense competition internationally and from other regions, membership numbers need to be maximised to deliver the funds necessary to be truly effective.

Specific benefits of HTSC membership include:

  1. Detailed listing on the HTSC website.
  2. Listing on the very popular Sunshine Coast Hinterland Map, with a print run over 80,000 each year, available through Visitor Information Centres, Accommodation Houses and Tourist Attractions across the entire Sunshine Coast region.
  3. Exclusive access to advertising in HTSC publications (the Wedding Guide is an example).
  4. Exclusive access to participate in the Wedding Showcase and Wedding Festival.
  5. Invitation to Member Networking events.
  6. Invitation to workshops.
  7. Participation in promotional and marketing events in selected media.
  8. Key campaigns developed to promote the hinterland exclusively.
  9. A strong voice in the direction of tourism for the overall region.
  10. Membership fees that reflect an outstanding return for the annual charge.
