UPSKILLING RURAL & REGIONAL TOURISM OPERATORS
NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said, “NSW First provides free online webcasts and webinars which aim to help NSW tourism businesses develop, promote and sell their products, no matter where they are in NSW.”
“The expanded program this year will help further develop the offerings of Sydney and rural and regional tourism businesses by including 18 interactive online training events, which is three times more than what was offered in 2016.
“As a result of last year’s NSW First program and the advice and support of experts from the State’s tourism agency, we are now seeing 37 new tourism products being offered in international markets, and more than half of those new tourism products come from rural and regional NSW."
The NSW First program, run by Destination NSW, has a practical focus with advice on how to access funding, engage traditional and digital media, target specific sectors, and become export-ready.
