  • Table 2 - Social media and marketing to the MTB market. Facilitated by Rob King from Kingthing Marketing
  • Table 3 - MTB Related Business Opportunities - What has and hasn't worked. Facilitated by Kevin turner from Regional Development Australia (Tasmania)
  • Table 4 - Preparing your business for the MTB market. Facilitated by Sam Denmead from Green Hat Tourism and Mountain Biking Network Tasmania

  • Table 6 – How to start or diversify your business. Facilitated by The Van Diemen Project
  • Table 7 – Tourism basics for business. Facilitated by Visit Northern Tasmania.

At each table you'll hear insights offered by the facilitator in a focused 10minute discussion before moving to the next table and topic. Numbers are strictly limited due to social distancing, and additional sessions may be considered if demand exists.  BOOK HERE
