Brand Orange has secured funding from the NSW Government to support essential equipment needs at the upcoming Taste Orange@Sydney promotional event in Martin Place this week, commencing on the 10th  &11th September.

Minister for Regional Development John Barilaro said Taste Orange@Sydney, established in 2012, is a fantastic promotional opportunity for Orange and surrounding areas.


“Taste Orange@Sydney brings to the City the diverse range of food, wine, tourism and investment opportunities available in Regional NSW, specifically the Central Ranges district across Orange, Blayney and Cabonne,” Mr Barilaro said.


“The event consists of a two-day expo in the heart of the Sydney CBD that showcases the region to encourage visitors and promote its many attractive features including accommodation, shopping, health, transport, industry and education,” he said.


Member for Orange Andrew Gee welcomed the NSW Government’s support for equipment to promote the event to CBD workers and shoppers.


“Taste Orange@Sydney is a wonderful celebration of the best we have to offer and I want to congratulate Brand Orange for organising what is anticipated to be another highly successful promotion,” Mr Gee said.


“Food and wine has been the story for the Orange Region for many years and Brand Orange has led marketing for the area since 2007 to encourage more people to visit, live and invest with us.


“Taste Orange@Sydney is a fantastic opportunity for Sydneysiders and tourists to sample delicious local food and wine, hear live performances including music from the Orange High School Senior Stage Band, and find out more about Orange and its surrounding districts,” he said.
