The first event of the Better Together Showcase series was launched by the Hon Susan Close MP, Minister for the Public Sector. Our guest speaker was the Hon Geoff Brock MP, Minister for Regional Development, who shared his thoughts on what regional engagement means to him. The event also featured three speakers sharing their experiences on regional engagement, followed by a panel of five experts sharing their thoughts on engaging the regions.
Over 230 people from across South Australia attended the Showcase event and over 850 people watched it live via webinar.
