ASSISTING OUR TOURISM BUSINESSES

Free online advice from experts
DALLAS SHERRINGHAM
CENTRAL Coast Tourism has had a massive battle to stay afloat in the trying times of Covid-19, but a brilliant new program will give them the chance to bounce back in a big way.
With the anchors on overseas travel now and some interstate borders shut, travellers are looking for places to go and things to do.
 
And where better to have a relaxing seaside holiday than right here on our own Central Coast?
 
However, competition will be fierce in this new found bonanza and this is why the webinars and training for local operators will be so important.
 
Coast tourism-based businesses can now register for the free online events to hear expert advice about the domestic market, how to sell bookable products online, and how to work with distribution partners.
 
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the webinars and training were hosted by the NSW Government’s tourism agency, Destination NSW.
 
“This is free, expert advice for local tourism operators and will help attract new and returning visitors to the Central Coast,” Mr Crouch said.
 
“Some parts of our community have been hit by the triple whammy of fires, flood and COVID-19 over the past few months. The webinars and training will help local businesses to upskill and adapt.”
 
These include:
23 July – Discuss and Develop your Business: Leverage the Love NSW campaign: TripAdvisor and Viator.
28 July – Restart Series: Sell bookable products online.
4 August – Discuss and Develop Your Business: Commissions and the travel distribution system.
12 August – Discuss and Develop Your Business: Creating effective trade fact sheets, and
26 August – Discuss and Develop Your Business: Working with your accredited Visitor Information Centre.
 
Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Steve Cox said the events were an important step on the road to recovery for NSW’s tourism industry.
 
“The Restart Series are webinars addressing the pressing issues facing our industry right now such as how to attract customers in the domestic market, which is important for operators who have previously focused on international visitors,” Mr Cox said.
 
“The Discuss and Develop Your Business workshops are practical sessions where operators can hear directly from Destination NSW’s industry development team and guest speakers.”
