BUSH FIRE & COVID
Following the devastating 2019/20 fires and floods, Ask Roz Blue Mountains was contracted Blue Mountains City Council to spearhead the “shop local” initiative. Our mission was to rally local residents and inspire them to embrace their community by supporting visitor-based businesses, fostering resilience and revitalization.
During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ask Roz Blue Mountains was the sole organisation collaborating with the Blue Mountains City Tourism Visitor Information Centres to provide innovative and contactless visitor information solutions. We embraced technology and utilized our digital prowess to ensure safe and seamless access to crucial tourist information.
Mark Greenhill OAM, Mayor, Blue Mountains City Council said: “As Tourism is one of the key drivers of the Blue Mountains economy, the past eighteen months have been extremely challenging for many local businesses and residents. We have endured catastrophic bushfires and flooding, along with the effects of the global Pandemic.
Graham and Roslyn, through their business Ask Roz, have been a champion for the many tourism services and attractions here in the Blue Mountains. In particular, Ask Roz’s support of our Council owned and managed services and attractions such as walking tracks, theatre, cultural centre and parks have informed and attracted a wide audience of both visitors and locals for many years.
Ask Roz gave their valuable support by partnering with Blue Mountains City Council (BMCC) on the highly successful Love Local campaign. The Love Local campaign, launched in January 2020, was originally aimed at promoting attractions in our towns and villages to recoup money lost to the local economy after visitors stayed away during bushfires. The campaign, embraced by our community, was extended during lockdowns in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During that period we launched Love Local Live, Love Local Lessons, the Love Local Business Directory and Love Local on Stage. By January 2021, Love Local had reached an audience of over 3.2 million.
Ask Roz was instrumental in the success of this campaign by providing us with access to their extensive digital audience across a range of platforms including their Facebook page They also gave authenticity to the campaign by lending their trusted voice.
Throughout the pandemic, Ask Roz has made available their comprehensive range of eMagazines to BMCCs Visitor Information Centres (VICs). This has assisted the VICs in providing engaging and relevant information to visitors in a COVID-safe way and has been especially useful when face-to-face operations had to be suspended at the VICs due to public health orders.
Ask Roz has continued to support the Blue Mountains community throughout the pandemic by sharing timely information regarding Council facilities where appropriate, thereby assisting our messaging reach as broad an audience as possible.
BMCC appreciates and values the excellent work Graham and Roslyn do for both our regional tourism industry and our community during this challenging time.“
