Experiential tourism provides a brand new layer of opportunities well beyond the traditional tourism landscape. Visitors are seeking the opportunity to engage with local stories, culture and to connect with the essence of a place and its people.
These workshops are designed for tourism businesses in the Chilterns and the North Wessex Downs AONB.
There are two sessions:
The workshops will be led by tourism and marketing specialist Chris Brant from Unmissable England, supported by the Chilterns Conservation Board. Chris has over 20 years experience working in sustainable tourism and marketing. He has project managed Visit England’s Discover England Fund programme across nine National Parks developing over 70 brand new visitor experiences to take to market. Chris is the founder of Unmissable England (www.unmissableengland.com) a new booking platform and website with a unique collection of authentic experiences developed and hosted by small to medium sized tourism businesses from Cumbria to Cornwall. Unmissable England targets consumers in North America and Northern Europe.
The workshops are organised by the Chilterns Conservation Board in partnership with the North Wessex Downs AONB. They are FREE for businesses in the leisure and hospitality sector located in and around the Chilterns and North Wessex Downs AONBs thanks to grant funding from Mend the Gap and the HS2 Business and Local Economy Fund.
Places are limited to 30 and pre-booking is essential, book early to avoid disappointment.
