This business to business event is an opportunity to network with other tourism businesses in the area, and to gather tips and information as well as one another’s leaflets. Come along, bring your local tourism business ambitions, tips, ideas and questions. Arrive and depart when it suits you.
This new format event has four elements for you to take part in:
The ever popular leaflet swap where you will be able to collect all of the leaflets you require for the 2024 season ahead, throughout the day.
Key tourism businesses will each have a display table where you can chat with their representatives, exchange print, and in some cases enjoy samples.
Popular in 2023 our workshop shorts and advice surgeries are back!
Workshops and surgeries will include;
- Accessibility for those with additional needs and disabilities
- How to make the most of your VPDD listing
- Social media tips and tricks
- With many more to be announced.
The advice surgeries are informal 10-to-15-minute sessions to spend some valuable one to one time with your VPDD (Visit Peak District Derbyshire) team. Surgeries will include:
- Make the most of your membership and your VPDD listing
- Social media drop-in surgery
- VPDD membership options and opportunities
Light refreshments will be available free of charge throughout the day at our "Café Exchange" area on a help yourself basis to encourage informal chats, opportunities to collaborate, and keep you fuelled up for a really useful, practical exchange of ideas, mutual support, and more.
