New Digital Business Resource for Tourism & Hospitality Businesses
A brand new digital business resource has launched for the tourism community in the Loch Lomond, Trossachs and Clyde Sea Lochs area.
The website, www.businesslochlomond.com created as part of the Scottish Enterprise Tourism Destination Development Fund, is completely free to register and use; signposting businesses to news, events, training and funding opportunities, business case studies, industry toolkits and more.
Registered users can also post jobs, business news and events for free, and in the longer term will get access to bespoke training materials and tourism business intelligence – all with the aim of helping tourism and hospitality businesses develop and grow and engage with their visitors.
Karen Donnelly, Destination Manager of Destination Organisation Love Loch Lomond said: “Through our work with destination organisation Love Loch Lomond and having engaged with the local tourism and hospitality business community over time, we realised that there was a real need for a ‘one-stop shop’ where tourism businesses can go to access all kinds of resources, news and events which can help them capitalise on business opportunities, training, and get practical information to meet the daily challenges of running a tourism business in 21st Century Scotland”.
Karen continued: “We are delighted with the feedback received on the site so far, and we strongly encourage tourism and hospitality businesses to register for free, to join our business community and share their news, events and local job opportunities for our area – and take advantage of local business events and training opportunities.”
Business Loch Lomond is preparing to launch an HR toolkit for small to medium sized tourism businesses, which will complement a series of expert workshops scheduled to start in November 2017 and run through until Spring 2018. More information can be found in the Events section of the Business Loch Lomond website.
