GATEWAY VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE
TKI is the only SA region that manages an information centre - this is an enormous benefit to TKI Members. The Gateway Visitor Information Centre in Penneshaw, with its distinctive yellow "i" on a blue background, identifies the centre as part of the National Network of Accredited Visitor Information Centres. This centre provides an important marketing opportunity for TKI members by exposing member's products and services to thousands of visitors each year in person, by phone and via email.
Brochure Displays: Brochure display space is available to TKI members only. Brochures must adhere to the following:
- DL and A4 brochures only will be carried.
- Be no less than 110 GSM paper thicknesses.
- A4 Posters must be printed, not hand drawn or written.
Familiarisations: Information Centre staff undertake limited educational product Familiarisations throughout the year where staff and volunteers visit TKI member attractions for education purposes. Members will be best promoted through knowledgeable information staff and are encouraged to extend invitations to the Visitor Information Centre Manager for staff visits. Education of, and ongoing communication with the Gateway Visitor Information Centre staff should be a high priority for all TKI members. Tourism Kangaroo Island recommends members help themselves via:
- Contacting the Gateway Visitor Information Centre and introducing your business;
- Regularly briefing centre staff on your product; and
- Keeping a stock of brochures at the centre
Please note that direct bookings from Information Centre staff are a bonus and should not be an expectation of membership. We endeavour to help walk-in customers to book accommodation and tours where possible but making bookings is certainly not the core function of the centre.
Please contact Gail Smith - the Information Centre Manager - to discuss the TKI Member benefits available within the Centre.
