About this event

The National Churches Trust (NCT) is supporting historic places of worship by providing free training for all involved with churches and chapels. Join them to discover how your place of worship can benefit from tourism; helping encourage visitors and raising funds.

The FREE workshop will be held on Wednesday 23 June and will run from 10.30am to 12 noon.

This session will look at how you can develop a sustainable income from tourism by creating unique and bookable experiences for groups.

This session will include:

  • attracting UK and international tourists
  • getting to know the group travel market
  • advantages of working with international groups
  • types of inbound travellers
  • thinking about group size, time of year, visitor segment
  • pricing the package to market
  • making it bookable
  • marketing, what is your USP?
  • building industry relationships
  • Q&A time

The NCT will present a 45-60 minute talk, with lots of useful ideas and content and links to follow up later. There will then be at least 30 minutes for questions and comments. Participants are also encouraged to share ideas and questions in the chat.

The presentation (in pdf form) will be available to all attendees afterwards.
