Help for Dales tourism businesses

Grassington, 18 September, 2012.

Owners of tourism businesses in the Yorkshire Dales are being invited to two special events aimed at helping them boost trade.

Bookings are now being taken for the free get-togethers in Grassington Town Hall on October 3 and at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes on October 4.

They are being organised by the Dales Tourism Business Network, which was set up by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) and the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is co-ordinated by Susan Briggs of The Tourism Network.

Kathryn Storey, the YDNPA’s Sustainable Tourism Officer, said: “The events are designed to be useful, stimulating and fun and they provide people who have businesses in the tourism sector with chances to meet other tourism providers in the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale, to network, share ideas and learn from each other.

“We've got about 35 bookings so far, and a large proportion of them are businesses that have been to our events before. I think that's a real endorsement for the sessions as they clearly think they are worthwhile.

“These events are all about making the best of what we have. They will provide some ideas for marketing on a tiny budget and they will look at how people can make the most of the autumn and winter months to maximise income now and in the future.

“We'll also talk about the new Sustainable Tourism Strategy and Action Plan for the Yorkshire Dales that is being developed for our re-accreditation as a EUROPARC area for sustainable tourism.”

Both events run from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and have the same content and bookings can be made on the website www.dalestourism.com/events.
