help us help our waterways
Research & Sustainability Events...
With over 60 years combined experience in the fishing and events industry, SCF, Suntag and InfoFish Australia are proud to announce the next generation of Fishing Competitions! The main focus of these events revolve around the health and wellbeing of our waterways, local fish stocks and the condition of surrounding catchment areas. Using the SCF Research & Events Smartphone App, we collect valuable data from all types of recreational fisherman/women to get an accurate understanding of the current condition of each location an event is hosted. This information will help determine what impact recreational and commercial fishing currently have on our waterways and the steps we need to take to improve or sustain them.
A little about SCF...
We are SCF Australia! We are one of the top online fishing content providers in the country and the number one online fishing presence on the Sunshine Coast and South East Queensland. Our articles, product reviews, news and videos reach over 80,000 people per week on Facebook alone, and is backed by a following of over 28,000 subscribers.
Locally we are unrivalled in the fishing demographic which awards us a distinct advantage over the few larger SEQ online fishing entities, as our locally targeted campaigns have a much broader reach than is achievable by any of the top rival pages. We constantly evaluate our content to ensure it is relevant, interesting and informative to all members of the Australian fishing community. We balance our local and national content in such a way that we can maintain our strong local influence without it limiting our growing national reach and popularity.
SCF Australia’s social media platforms have proven powerful mediums for communicating with our dedicated followers. SCF is a resource for fishing enthusiasts run by fishing enthusiasts and a platform where we all come together to celebrate our passion and learn from the experiences of like-minded individuals. Our formula is simple, we only align ourselves with relevant and quality brands we truly believe in and are genuine in our opinions when we express them. Our integrity is important to us and more importantly, to our members and having a reputation for honesty ensures we maintain our influential position in the community.
Displaying how powerful our data collection methods are along with stepping up the atmosphere and celebrations with competitors has dramatically increased our national growth! Our online platforms have been growing by roughly 200 people each week from all states and is expected to continually increase as we continue to improve our events. Considering our marketing plan is still months away from officially starting we have already received a lot of interest for the King of Kings CQ, and have confirmed entrants from Exmouth (WA), Melbourne and Sydney.

GT King, Thready King and venue hosting partnership/sponsorship..
King of Kings CQ invites you to become the sponsor of our two major prizes at our first annual fishing tournament held in Central Queensland. Expectations are that this events will generate a significant number of visitors to the Central Queensland area. A number of opportunities exist to showcase your business and increase exposure to such an audience with obvious associated benefits. A partnership with the competition will give your business positive public exposure and goodwill within the community.
A state-wide promotional campaign via visual, print and online mediums will greatly enhance the awareness of your organisation and location.
To become the major prize/venue host sponsor of this event we require a total investment of $6,000. There will be 2 major awards, the GT King and Thready King. $1000 cash will be awarded to each winner along with branded novelty size cheques and a gold crown. These awards can be personally presented by a Gracemere hotel representative.
From previous events, we estimate that the alcohol sales alone will be roughly $3,500 on the Thursday night and again on the Sunday evening. So hosting this event should increase your revenue by $10,000 or more with food included over that particular weekend.
A long term sponsorship/partnership is preferred. Ideally we’d like the relationship to grow with the event and reassess the agreement each year.
The sponsorship agreement will start immediately after a deposit or payment in full has been made.

The web site includes a wide variety of information about the show, its sponsors, and exhibitors, and is featured on all appropriate media promotion and publicity. Advertising of the Gracemere Hotel and links to the Gracemere’s online platforms will be featured.

A number of our high profile guests and demonstrators will be on-hand to discuss the event and showcase event partners.
Music/entertainment will be included.
As this is the first year for the King of kings, there is little direct precedent, but similar to SCF sustainability there will be approximately 300 attendees plus friends family, locals and spectators.
We estimate that the event will increase your revenue by over $10,000 that particular weekend and not interrupt with normal weekend trade.
A representative of the Gracemere Hotel is encouraged to get up on stage and personally welcome everyone to the venue and say a few words.

Our aim is to bring as many tourists from SEQ as possible to the region but also encourage as many local to get involved. The main marketing vehicle used for King of kings is social media, the vehicles are Instagram, Facebook and Websites. King of Kings select these media and vehicles to reach the identified target audience promptly to therefore convey the intended marketing messages. These social media vehicles can reach a large portion of the identified target market and are strategically selected to do so. With close to the entire target market in Australia having access to Facebook and Instagram the vehicles selected would maximise the value of money spent on sales promotion.
