Workshop explores inbound tourism for small business

The TNQ Tourism Small Business Development Program is exploring the topic of inbound tourism at its next Port Douglas workshop. The Program has joined forces with the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC) to get small businesses ready for the international tourism market.  ATEC’s Know-How for Inbound Tourism Excellence workshop will be at QT Port Douglas on Tuesday 28 March from 9am to 4pm.

TTNQ Chief Executive Officer Alex de Waal said Pinnacle Tourism Marketing Director Michael Nelson would deliver the workshop designed to assist small businesses to make informed decisions about their inbound tourism direction, enhance their product to meet market needs and engage better with the distribution networks.

“Attendees will learn what inbound tourism is, why it is important for small tourism businesses, the types of markets and their cultural influences, travel distribution systems, pricing and packaging, and entry level exporting sales calls and materials,” he said.

The workshops are part of the program supported by the Australian Small Business Advisory Services – Northern Australia Tourism Initiative, an Australian Government initiative. The TNQ Tourism Small Business Development Program is for TTNQ member and non-member businesses (or start-ups) that receive a significant portion of revenue from tourism and have fewer than 20 full-time equivalent employees. Businesses and business intenders can participate in as many activities they would like.

The workshop is just $50 per person and can be booked online. To book your workshop spot or for more information go to ttnq.org.au and click on Resources and then Small Business.
