Workshops to benefit local tourism businesses

28 July 2011

Tourism Snowy Mountains will conduct a series of marketing workshops in the region over the next five months to support local tourism operators to develop their businesses.

NSW Trade and Investment is supporting Tourism Snowy Mountains to run the series of workshops from August to December.

The workshops will be scheduled to run in the off peak times for operators in each area. Workshops in Tumut and Tumbarumba will be during the winter season while those in Cooma and the Snowy River Shire will be held over the summer.

Tourism Snowy Mountains has tailored the content of the workshops to meet the needs of each shire in the region and sourced specialist presenters for each topic. The workshop topics were developed by Tourism Snowy Mountains following consultation with tourism operators, business chambers and local government.
