Now... the how?

There are 16 closed regional Facebook groups, which bring together tourism businesses from across specific regions to connect, inspire and make the most of relevant opportunities both, for your business and your area.

We've created a list of all the groups, so just search for your region and click to join. 

For most of these groups we either help with admin in partnership with the local authority, tourism group or Destination Management Organisation or it's run by these regional groups, of which we are a member too!  It's a really good network of regional tourism contacts for you to tap into.
