Rottnest Express has generously repeated their sponsorship of the trail this year!

Business After Dark 2015

Friday 27th March saw the second ‘Business after Dark’ event unfold on the Island between 4pm-8pm. Attendees included Parliamentary Friends of Tourism, RICC members, Rottnest Foundation Board Members, RIA Board & Executive, Tourism Executives, Project Partners & Sponsors and Media Representatives. The event is hosted by the Rottnest Island Chamber of Commerce (RICC) http://ricc.org.au/aboutrottnestchamber/ and is a fabulous networking and information sharing event that focuses on the Island as a Tourist destination, the issues it faces along with the positive progress that is occurring and new initiatives being implemented. The event was set at the Basin, with speeches occurring at Sunset, with everyone looking out over the Bay. The weather was absolutely perfect, matching the perfect scenery! Jeff King (Chairman) was invited to speak at the event about the Foundation’s current projects. The formal proceedings ended with Scooplight Theatre actors performing an ANZAC themed production that left us wanting to see more! It was a truly wonderful evening, well run and organised! Thank you to the RICC for a great...
