Now... the how?

There are 17 closed regional Facebook groups and a Fife Tourism Partnership page, 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. We've added some membership questions which are required to access  most of the groups.

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.

Do I join as myself, or my business?
