Restaurants and food producers from across South Australia’s regions are being urged to take part in the 2016 Tasting Australia Associated Events Program. The program offers a wide range of opportunities for people to enjoy South Australia’s hospitality and to experience the state’s amazing produce.
An open invitation has been issued to local businesses wanting to take part, calling on anyone within the food and wine industry to become involved by creating their own event.
Last year there were 85 associated events across the state. The theme for Tasting Australia 2016 is ‘Landscapes’, giving participants an opportunity to showcase the unique attributes of their region or produce.
Tasting Australia’s Creative Director Simon Bryant said he was looking forward to seeing what events are developed.
“I’m excited at the prospect of the quality based on the success of 2014 program,” he said.
“I think we will see some really interesting interpretations of the theme and it will be a fantastic opportunity for producers to launch a new product, or event holders to share new tours or experiences.
“Paul Henry and I will work with applicants to guide them through the process should they need it, to maximise their opportunities, working with the Tasting Australia team to ensure all events are exciting to consumers.”
Tasting Australia will be held from Sunday 1 May to Sunday 8 May 2016.
Registration for the 2016 Tasting Australia Associated Events Program are now open. Visit www.tastingaustralia.com.au for more information or contact Events Coordinator Tasting Australia Tamara Wilks on (08) 8463 4706.
