“We’re proposing to take the glitz and glamour of the Logies beyond the fringes of the city and out to Tamworth in 2018 and then potentially Dubbo and Albury in 2019 and 2020.”“The impact of hosting an event of this stature in regional NSW cannot be overlooked and this is no ambit claim — we’ve done our homework and taking the Logies to the bush represents more than double the value of hosting them in Sydney. These areas have some of the best food, wine, unique tourist attractions and country hospitality that you couldn’t find anywhere else in the world.”“The positive flow-on effects would be felt right across our regions with more heads
on beds, and more tourist dollars ending up in the pockets of local businesspeople.”
The bid would put the awards in Tamworth at least for next year. Dubbo and Albury would be assessed as venues after the awards ceremony next year.
