Free training to give NSW competitive edge

NSW accommodation businesses can tap into new government training designed to help them develop, promote and sell their product to a wider market.

It includes face-to-face workshops and online webcasts providing free online and on-demand content to cater to busy accommodation businesses across NSW around the clock.

On-demand webcasts offer ‘how-to’ insights on a range of topics for the tourism industry, with events to be added to the calendar throughout the year.

Minister for tourism Adam Marshall said the state government was committed to providing tourism businesses with expert advice to ensure they continue to grow.

“The NSW First Program offers the tourism industry the tools and knowledge needed to gain a competitive edge,” he said.

“We’ve consulted with our six destination networks across the state and heard their ideas for upskilling our tourism businesses and growing the visitor economy in NSW.

“We have created a state-wide program that now includes a new tourism manager forum and tourism development workshop to help build product development capacity across rural and regional NSW.

“We know that our local businesses are great champions for their region and we want to make sure that we continue to support them on areas such as regional conferencing, international markets and social media.”
