An organisation that represents around 600 tourism and hospitality businesses across Mid Wales has announced a new partnership to deliver training courses focused on increasing sales and profits.
MWT Cymru has signed up Tourism Growth to deliver courses with member businesses receiving a preferential rate. The courses begin with ‘Boosting your sales on social media’ at Aberystwyth University on Thursday, June 8 followed by ‘Getting more sales from your website’ at The Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells on Wednesday, June 28.
The courses, which start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm, are business specific and completely focused on helping tourism operators increase sales and profits. They are run by tourism sector specialists, who have a breadth of experience, knowledge and best practice from working with tourism employers, especially smaller independent businesses, all around the UK.
Each course is available to any tourism related business at a preferential rate of £89 +VAT - a £40 saving - per person for MWT Cymru members.
MWT Cymru’s chief executive Val Hawkins said: “Tourism Growth’s courses fit perfectly with our aims and objectives: supporting our members to take advantage of every opportunity to market their businesses more effectively to a wider audience, particularly online and helping them build reputation, increase profits and enhance the overall quality and attractiveness of Wales as a great destination.”
Tourism Growth runs a series of open training courses, workshops and seminars at venues across the country, from coastal resorts and rural towns to cities. Training programmes have been specifically developed to meet the needs of the owners, directors and managers of tourism businesses.
Course topics include sales and marketing, team management, social media, revenue management, quality management, standards of performance and financial management.
The company also designs and delivers ‘In-house’ training and development and business coaching programmes and best practice visits to top performing and award-winning tourism businesses.
