Experts reveal the secrets of winning events

Sunshine Coast Regional Council is running a series of workshops for the community on how to run successful events, with tips from leading media professionals including Channel 7's Rosanna Natoli and ABC Radio's Cam Young.

Community organisations who attend will be inspired to create new events, increase community engagement and network with other event organisers across the region.

Council's Community Events and Celebrations Manager, Michael Bloyce, said the workshops covered planning, marketing, funding, sponsorship and media.
