THE Clarence Valley was on sale over the weekend at Sydney's Country and Regional Living Expo.

The Grafton Chamber of Commerce, Clarence Valley Council and local industry leaders were there, doing their best to attract investment to the Valley.

Chamber of Commerce executive officer James Patterson said it had been a big couple of days.

"We've been here selling the glories of the Clarence Valley and there's lots of interest," Mr Patterson said.

"Its been a good opportunity to profile and highlight attractions of the Clarence Valley.

"People are looking at sea-change; they're looking at investment; they're wondering whether they can bring their work skills to start up new companies in the area.

"We've had people wanting to buy motels; we've had people looking at expanding their business to include regional areas."

Clarence Valley mayor Richie Williamson said it had been a rewarding experience.

"People are very keen to learn more about the Clarence Valley and more about what we have to offer," Cr Williamson said.

"They're also very keen to learn more about what we can offer them on their next family holiday.

"So not only was it a business-driven expo, there was quite a level of interest for the next holidays for families and retirees."
