Vision China Times Sponsorship

19/11/2018

Georges River Council approved an application in December 2017 from Vision China Times to be a media sponsor for the 2018 Lunar New Year Festival and Australia Day festival.

After initially being accepted, the sponsorship was later cancelled in mid-January 2018 following a meeting of Council’s Major Events Advisory Committee, as it was decided that Council had a major media partner who adequately covered the media sponsorship needs of the festivals.

Contact did occur between members of Council’s Major Events Advisory Committee, Council staff and the Chinese Consul-General’s office. This is standard practice in the lead-up to each Lunar New Year festival, given the Consul-General’s involvement in the formal elements of the day.
