Cotswold Tourism is leading a new tourism project which is set to launch to the international travel trade industry in 2019. This will help to promote tourism across the wider Cotswolds region following our success in gaining the award of £250,000 worth of funding through Year 3 of the UK Governments £40 million Discover England Fund.
The ‘Uncover the Cotswolds' project should boost inbound tourism with a focus on attracting visitors from the Nordic markets, Italy and Spain. The aim will be to disperse visitors across the wider region and provide them with greater access to authentic local experiences.
The 2019 tourism year starts with a free training offer for tourism businesses in the Cotswold area, including some businesses that have already been identified by the tourism partnership, as offering unique experiences. However, there is capacity for more local unique tourism experience-led businesses to attend the these training sessions to learn more about the project.
Anyone interested in finding out more about how to get involved in the ‘Uncover the Cotswolds’ project should email firstname.lastname@example.org or register for updates via www.cotswolds.com/uncoverthecotswolds.
