Showcase South Australia has launched the new I Choose SA Business Directory to assist the public in finding South Australian owned and operated businesses. Since carrying on Brand South Australia’s membership and events program when Brand SA closed on June 30th 2019, Showcase SA has been working hard to carry on the great work that Brand SA started, and this now includes operating the I Choose SA directory.
In light of the recent devastation of the South Australian bushfires and the tremendous losses of local businesses, we are launching the I Choose SA Directory, by compiling an easily navigable directory of businesses in bushfire impacted regions, which have been affected directly and indirectly by the fires. This includes loss of business and income due to booking cancellations, as visitors can often find it difficult to know what’s open for business, or accessible (particularly on Kangaroo Island). The ‘Bushfire’ category, and the search functionality we’ve added to this website will allow the public to find and support these businesses through visitation, bookings, purchasing products and services and more. View the listings of bushfire-affected businesses you can support here.
The website is also designed to promote ALL South Australian businesses across the state, so please use the portal we’ve created to find a range of fantastic local businesses to support.
IS YOUR BUSINESS BUSHFIRE AFFECTED?
Free premium listings are available to all bushfire impacted businesses. If your business has been listed already, please click claim me on the business listing page, so you are able to take ownership of that listing, edit and maintain the information for your company. If your business is not listed, you can click ‘Add Listing’ in the menu. This premium listing will be provided free of charge for 12 months, thanks to Showcase South Australia.
ALL OTHER BUSINESSES
If you have a South Australian business and would like to be in the I Choose SA directory, you can set up a free basic listing by choosing ‘Add Listing’ in the menu.
USING THE I CHOOSE SA LOGO AND THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN STATE BRAND FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Food South Australia, the peak body representing the state’s food and beverage industry, is working with food and beverage businesses and liaising with retailers and activations such as festivals and events, to help the industry leverage the I Choose SA campaign to raise consumer awareness of South Australian food and beverage businesses and products. Use of the I Choose SA brand assets and campaign artwork in the food and beverage sector must be approved by Food South Australia.
You can also register to use I Choose SA as a visual identifier to clearly distinguish South Australian products and services. Before you add the I Choose SA design elements to your South Australian business, you will need to register here.
If you have already registered to use I Choose SA you do not need to register again.
The Department for Trade and Investment will continue to take registrations for companies to use the State Brand.
