loving lismore christmas campaign

campaign details

Our aim is to increase visitation and spending in Lismore by showcasing the city’s unique and diverse range of products, shopping, dining and cultural experiences. The ‘#lovinglismore’ campaign will provide an opportunity for Lismore businesses to showcase their special offerings on a dedicated Christmas campaign website. The microsite will be promoted through targeted television, print and social media advertising as well as posters, flyers and point of sale. Customers will be offered an incentive to ‘shop local’. For every $20 spent in a participating business they will receive an entry into a weekly draw where they can win a #lovinglismore gift hamper and be entered into a draw to win one of three major prizes. We anticipate a prize pool worth over $5,000. The Christmas campaign will kick off on Friday 24 November and the first weekly prize drawn on Friday 1 December 2017.

The more businesses that participate, the more successful the campaign will be. Here is how you can be involved.
