WELCOME BACK FOR 2021. Here at MRBTA we are incredibly grateful for the continued support of our member businesses and we are looking forward to working with you as we move into the new membership year, which runs from 1 January – 31 December 2021.
With travel continuing to be disrupted due to Covid-19, our services have never been more relevant for visitors seeking inspiration and advice on the region. Since travel restrictions eased in May, we have experienced an additional 52,000 website users at margaretriver.com. Our website, social media, visitor centres and Central Reservations produce 2 million visitor touchpoints annually, and your MRBTA membership offers the opportunity to connect with visitors via these channels.
YOUR INVOICE IS ON ITS WAY
In response to your feedback, we are simplifying the renewal process by pre-selecting your membership package based on your business type and sending you an invoice rather than asking you to log into your account. You will be emailed your invoice by November 30 and you will simply need to click the payment link to process your renewal. Please email the team if you have not received your invoice.
