Following the success of last year’s events, the Growth Hub will again be working with The Tourism Business to provide workshops to the tourism and hospitality sector located in the North Yorkshire Council region to plan their marketing for 2024.
This fully funded programme, free to hotels, B&Bs, self-catering operators, wedding venues, restaurants, spas, visitor attractions and events organisers, is delivered by Martin Evans of The Tourism Business, the York-based marketing consultancy. Martin has over two decades of experience working with leading hotels, attractions and other tourism operators.
Each free training day with twelve like-minded tourism businesses from your area will be lively and full of marketing and promotional ideas to put into practice in your business.
We already know that with interest rates rising fast, utility bills hitting new heights, and staff wages and food costs increasing by double digits, it’s going to be a hard winter and a tough 2024. This new, free workshop from the Growth Hub, is just what you need in order to hit the ground running with sharpened and cost-effective marketing for the challenging times ahead.
