Territory Proud and Territory Made join forces
In 2017 two great Territory organisations- Territory Proud and Territory Made, are joining forces.
Following a productive and successful co working relationship as part of the 2016 Tropical Garden Fair, Territory Proud and Territory Made have decided to merge. CEO and Founder of Territory Made, Sarah Price will continue to work with both Territory Made and Territory Proud in her role as Marketing and Events Manager for Territory Proud. “Promoting and helping develop creative Territory businesses has long been a passion of mine”, said Ms Price. “By partnering with Territory Proud, I have the privilege to work with an organisation that equally shares my passion for growing and supporting Territory businesses and Territory Made can continue to flourish.
“Territory Proud was created in 2003 to help promote Territory business as a first choice option for consumers, businesses and government when making their purchase decisions with the motto “Working Together, Helping Territorians Achieve their Goals”. Today Territory Proud is a community of over 250 businesses and its membership is continuing to grow.
As well as promoting Territory business, Territory Proud has been instrumental in helping a number of young Territorians reach their full potential. Territory Made was founded in 2015 as a monthly market event in the George Brown Botanic Gardens, also hosting events in 2016 in Palmerston. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength becoming a mainstay in the Territory’s dry season designer market calendar for both locals and visitors to the Territory alike.
On September 2nd and 3rd this year the combined might of these two great organisations in all the their glory with the inaugural Tropical Territory “A celebration of our lifestyle” to be held in the George Brown Darwin Botanical Gardens. Together with community organisations, this free event will be a celebration of all that makes the Territory truly unique with a range of displays, activities, competitions, talks and entertainment for the whole family. For chairman of Territory Proud Geoff Goodrich, the partnership made perfect sense. “Territory Made and Territory Proud are a natural fit. We share a passion, a vision and have much to gain by working together.
The future looks bright and I’m looking forward to working with Sarah to help Territorians achieve their goals”, said Mr Goodrich.
