South Australians can enter a draw to win one of 5000 $30 vouchers to spend on lunch or an experience in the CBD or North Adelaide, as part of a $150,000 economic stimulus package targeting the city’s hospitality and
Adelaide’s Long Lunch is designed to drive foot traffic and spending in the city in March and April, where restaurants, pubs, cafes and tourism experience operators are recovering from a challenging 12 months.
Delivered by the newly created Adelaide Economic Development Agency (AEDA) whose role is to stimulate the CBD economy, Adelaide’s Long Lunch program will provide vouchers to spend on lunch at a restaurant, café or
pub (dine-in only), or for admission to an experience or tour. It will also underpin further spending across the CBD.
A range of well-known venues and experiences are taking part including Chianti, Aces Pizza & Liquor, BBQ Buoys, Gaja by Sashi, Escape Hunt and Mindshift Escape Rooms, Segway Sensation, and 2KW Bar and Restaurant.
The $30 vouchers will be distributed via a ballot system – to enter South Australians can register their details at www.experienceadelaide.com.au from today (Monday 15 February) until 11.59pm, Wednesday 24 February.
Winners will receive their voucher by email on Friday 26 February, and can redeem them at participating operators from 1 March to 30 April.
AEDA Chair Nikki Govan said the campaign would encourage South Australians to rediscover some of the great dining and experience options in the city this autumn.
“Adelaide’s Long Lunch will give 5000 people a chance to choose their own adventure and make a day out of visiting the CBD or North Adelaide where there’s so much to eat, see and do – have lunch at one of the many spots
across the city, then wander our laneways, stroll our mainstreets, or head to an experience,” Ms Govan said.
“Lunch is a time that businesses in the city have been hurting the most with so many city workers still based at home. By providing an incentive to visit the city, we’ll put $150,000 straight into the hospitality and tourism operators while also driving that all-important secondary spend.”
“We encourage all South Australians to register for the ballot and start planning their day out.”
Vouchers used in restaurants, cafés and pubs can be redeemed on food orders only. Drinks can be purchased separately. Vouchers can also pay for, or contribute to, admission to an experience or tour.
To enter the Adelaide’s Long Lunch ballot, visit www.experienceadelaide.com.au anytime from 9am on Monday February 15 until 11.59pm on Wednesday February 24.
Businesses can register to participate in the campaign by visiting www.aedasa.com.au/business until February 19.
How Adelaide’s Long Lunch will work
• Customer presents their Adelaide’s Long Lunch voucher at a participating operator at the point of purchase
• The operator scans the voucher code using their own device
• $30 is deducted from the customer’s food bill/experience admission
• The Adelaide Economic Development Agency will reimburse the operator direct for the value of vouchers redeemed each week.
