LOCAL TOURISM INDUSTY TO GAIN SKILLS IN ATTRACTING INTERNATIONAL TOURISM TO REGIONAL NSW
Local tourism operators are being encouraged to attend the upcoming Export Ready 101 as part of the NSW First Program, offering operators the opportunity to learn about targeting international visitors and how to be export ready.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the 2016 workshops delivered by the State’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, are aimed at providing tourism operators across Regional NSW with product development advice and industry resources to help grow tourism across the State.
“The Export Ready 101 workshop represents a wonderful opportunity for our tourism industry to learn what it means to be export ready and how tourism experiences can be bought and sold through inbound sales and distribution channels.
“Our beautiful region has so much on offer and we must ensure that our local tourism operators provide the very best products and experiences to visitors to maintain a competitive edge. I encourage tourism operators in the local region to book a place at the upcoming Export Ready 101 workshop soon so they don’t miss out.”
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said following on from a successful NSW First programs in previous years, more workshops have been offered this year.
“Destination NSW will deliver 30 workshops in 21 locations around NSW in addition to six new Digital Webinars for those who wish to participate online,” Mr Ayres said.
“Programs such as the NSW First Workshops demonstrate the NSW Government’s commitment to ensuring our State continues to lead the nation in international and domestic visitors, visitor nights and visitor expenditure.”
The Export Ready 101workshop will be held in Tamworth on 16th November 2016 from 9am to 11am.
The remaining workshop categories include: hands-on Industry Development workshops, bite-sized Digital Webinars and Inbound Strategy workshops.
