Tourism Noosa has announced a new partner will deliver the 2017 Noosa Food and Wine Festival.
Tourism Noosa CEO Damien Massingham announced that after a comprehensive selection process, creative services and events business Under One Roof has been awarded the license to operate the 2017 Noosa Food & Wine Festival.
“Under One Roof will become the strategic and operational partner with Tourism Noosa to deliver the 2017 Noosa Food & Wine Festival, which will be held from 18–21 May.”
“We are excited to be working with the team from Under One Roof who have a diverse range of experience across national and international festivals including Melbourne Food & Wine Festival, Grampians Grape Escape and Flavour Exchange Victoria”, said Massingham.
Under One Roof general manager Nick Burgess said the team were thrilled at the prospect of running the Noosa Food & Wine Festival.
“We will be working with Tourism Noosa and local hospitality operators to develop further partnerships for hosting chefs, creating events and providing a Festival hub. We are excited about developing and delivering a sustainable future for the Festival.
“Noosa is well recognised both nationally and internationally as a stunning food destination and we understand the significance of ensuring the Festival grows in a way that compliments the overall Noosa brand.
“The Festival will expand in 2017 to a four-day event and will continue to showcase some of Australia’s best chefs and Queensland produce across a diverse program of events showcasing the Noosa region” said Burgess.
The announcement comes one year after Noosa Food and Wine, the parent company that previously operated the festival, went into administration. Tourism Noosa took over operation of the festival in 2016.
