A revamped NSW First Workshop program for 2016 has been launched by the NSW Government, providing tourism operators in Regional NSW with product development advice and industry resources to help grow tourism across the State.


Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the 2016 workshops delivered by the State’s tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, will now extend over the full calendar year and deliver new, more targeted content through Market Ready and Export Ready streams around NSW and online.


“Tourism plays a massive role in our region so it’s important that we support tourism operators to expand their skills to help grow their business and these workshops are just one way we can do that.


“Our region has so much on offer whether it’s the famous music culture, scenic adventures, rodeo experiences or the emerging food and wine industry so we must ensure that our local tourism operators provide the very best products and experiences to visitors to maintain a competitive edge.


“The 2016 NSW First Workshops will provide a unique platform to share current industry insights and expertise to help NSW tourism businesses develop and access market opportunities.”


The five workshop categories are:  hands-on Industry Development workshops, bite-sized Digital Webinars, Export Ready 101 seminars, Inbound Strategy workshops and Seller Training for operators attending upcoming trade events.
